Earlier today, Tom Watson was named the 2014 U.S. Ryder Cup team captain. Watson will be the oldest captain the U.S. Ryder Cup team has had. It will be interesting to see the mix of old and new styles in Scotland in 2014. Those of us here at McGladrey think Watson is a great choice to succeed Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III. Congratulations from McGladrey!
Before closing this week, we’d like to remind our readers who live near Sea Island and those who might be visiting, that tomorrow (Dec. 14) is the final day for our Tournament Merchandise sale. Be sure to check out the Corn Barn at Sea Island Golf Club to see what’s left – you just might find the perfect gift for that special someone.

What a week it has been for Team McGladrey member and Tournament host, Davis Love III, who won the U.S. Golf Association’s Bob Jones Award on Wednesday. The Bob Jones award is considered the USGA’s highest honor. The recipient demonstrates the spirit, personal character and respect for the game exhibited by Jones. Davis will receive his award in February. We couldn’t think of a better person to win the award this year! Congratulations, Davis, from your friends at McGladrey!
Speaking of Davis, be sure to watch him while he plays in the Franklin Templeton Shootout, Dec. 7-9. You can catch this tournament on the Golf Channel or NBC. Davis is paired up with Brandt Snedeker. (Davis won the 1992 Shootout with Tom Kite). Snedeker was one of Davis’ Captain picks for the 2012 Ryder Cup. These two will make one solid team! Check out the pairings and let us know your predictions on who will win!
The completion of the Franklin Templeton Shootout will mark the last PGA TOUR event for 2012, and it’s been quite a year for Team McGladrey. In addition to Davis serving as the U.S. Ryder Cup captain and winning the Bob Jones award, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson won the John Deere Classic and the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and, even more exciting than that, Zach and his family welcomed their new addition, Abby Jane! And Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco hosted another successful charity tournament for the DiMarco Tee Up For Life celebrity golf tournament. This was the 12th year of the event, which has raised more than $4 million for charity since its inception!
