Congratulations Team McGladrey Member, Davis Love III


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!  

With 2012 coming to an end, that means the holidays are quickly approaching! If you live near St. Simons Island and are still looking for the perfect gift for a friend or family member who loves golf (or if you just want to treat yourself!), be sure to visit our Holiday Merchandise sale. The sale is going on in The Corn Barn at Sea Island Golf Club. Sales started yesterday and runs through Dec. 14. *Closed on Saturday and Sunday

We’ll be back with another update next week. We hope you’ll check back then for the latest news on The McGladrey Classic and Team McGladrey!
