Team McGladrey Wants YOU!


At the risk of repeating ourselves, we’d like to start this week’s update by reminding our readers of the upcoming July 10 deadline for voting for your favorite Caddie for Love contestant. Don’t miss your chance to let us know who you think should win this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go inside the ropes with Team McGladrey Member and 2012 U.S. Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III at The McGladrey Classic in October. Cast your vote now!

After you cast you Caddie for Love vote, take a minute or two to sign up to volunteer for this year’s McGladrey Classic. (Hard to believe it’s less than three months away!) In addition to Davis, Team McGladrey members Chris DiMarco and Zach Johnson played in last year’s inaugural tournament, along with many other golfing greats, including last year’s winner, Heath Slocum.

This year’s players field is shaping up to be equally as impressive, so we hope you’ll join us for the fun, and that legendary Sea Island hospitality (not to mention the great food)!

Team McGladrey members Davis, Chris and Zach are all playing in the John Deere Classic at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, IL this week, where, for the second consecutive year, members of the PGA TOUR Wives Association supported local families by distributing food (an impressive 12,000 pounds, to be exact) through the River Bend Foodbank Mobile Food Pantry and the John Deere Classic Birdies for Charity program. They also presented a check for $2,000 to the food bank. We love to the fact that the game of golf does so much for the community!

Speaking of the community, we’re proud to support Special Olympics and Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Georgia through The McGladrey Classic. We just received pictures of the Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Georgia’s new bus, which proudly displays The McGladrey Classic and Davis Love Foundation logos. We've included a photo at the top of this post. What do you think?

Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis is playing this week in the U.S. Women’s Open. Check out the twitpic she posted of her cool new red-white-and-blue U.S. Open bag. Pretty patriotic!

That’s it for this week’s update. We hope you’ll check back next week.
