79 Days and Counting...

The 2012 McGladrey Classic is now less than three months away – 79 days from today, to be exact! We’re looking forward to returning to Sea Island this October, and to seeing Team McGladrey members Chris DiMarco, Zach Johnson and Davis Love III. You can get YOUR tickets now. And if you need a “quick fix” before October, check out these images from the 2011 event.

Coming up before then, though…next week, is the second annual Zach Johnson Foundation Classic is coming up on July 30 at Elm Crest Country Club in Cedar Rapids, IA. The Foundation, is focused on giving back to Cedar Rapids in a long-lasting, meaningful way. We appreciate all that Zach (and all of our Team McGladrey members) does to give back to the community!

And speaking of giving back, you can do your part (and get a chance to win a Ryder Cup golf bag signed by 2012 Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III) by pledging to “Birdies Fore Love.”

Check back next week for more on Team McGladrey and the 2012 McGladrey Classic.

Congratulations, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson!

Wow! Those of us here at McGladrey were on pins and needles last weekend as Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson (who already won a red plaid jacket this year at Colonial Country Club) won the John Deere Classic on the second hole of a sudden death playoff against Troy Matteson. If you missed it, watch his amazing bunker shot (and the crowd goes wild)!

Congratulations, Zach!

Zach, along with Team McGladrey members Chris DiMarco and Davis Love III are playing this week in the British Open at Royal Lytham & St. Annes in England. You can bet we’ll be following the leaderboard this weekend!

Also this week, The McGladrey Classic conducted its Demo Day Fore Charity event at Sea Island’s Golf Learning Center. “Birdies Fore Love” is continuing this week, as well. For a chance to win a cool bag while supporting a great cause, click here.

Another exciting piece of news: Davis welcomed Justin Timberlake as the first-ever U.S. Ryder Cup Team Ambassador!

The game just doesn’t’ get much better than this, does it?

The McGladrey Classic – An Update and Congratulations

Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III is off this week, but that doesn’t mean he’s not busy. He’s been working on Ryder Cup details (Hard to believe it’s only a little more than two months away!), surfing, catching up at the office and was heading to Miami to watch daughter Lexie in her horse show. And we can’t mention Lexie without giving a big “congratulations” to Davis’ son Dru for shooting a 67 in the first round of the Golden Isles Invitational.

Congratulations, too, to Brian Bailey on winning a signed bag from Davis and fellow Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson as part of their friendly competition to see who could gain the most new followers on Twitter.

Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco and Zach are playing in the John Deere Classic at TPC Deere Run in Illinois. We’re pulling for “our guys,” but know there’s some stiff competition. Who are you pulling for? (The last time we checked, Chris was doing really well, by the way!) Do you think Steve Stricker will make history by winning his fourth straight John Deere title?

The McGladrey Classic is now just a little more than three months away. Get your tickets today. Want to get a discounted rate on your accommodations? Sign up to volunteer! We hope to see you at Sea Island!
