Charities and Weather in the Spotlight


Last week, Team McGladrey Members Davis Love III and Zach Johnson played at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, where Davis tied for 18th! Following the end of this tournament, the PGA TOUR and Tom Auclair interviewed Davis. You can watch the full PGA TOUR interview here, while Auclair’s interview is below.




This week, the U.S. Open is taking place at Merion Golf Club, and Zach (who is in group 33) tees off at 4:33 p.m. due to weather issues plaguing the Northeast (Thurs., June 13).   Unfortunately, the PGA TOUR just can’t seem to catch a break this season!  Check out the weather map Zach tweeted. It’s not looking too good!

While this week’s tournament is looking a bit risky, we’re keeping our fingers crossed for a clear and sunny forecast for The McGladrey Classic at Sea Island in November (4-10). Speaking of The McGladrey Classic, the rescheduled Demo Day Fore Charity is taking place this Saturday, June 15th! The weather seems like it’s going to be beautiful down in Sea Island. You still have time to sign up if you want to attend! Click here to register.

The McGladrey Classic has also posted a new charity spotlight to the media center. Through “Blessings in a Backpack,” Altama Elementary School volunteers pack bags each week for 468 students. Read about these amazing volunteers and their hard work here.  

Another great charity opportunity related to The McGladrey Classic is Birdies Fore Love, which donates 100 percent of pledge donations to participants’ choices of our participating charities. Guess the correct number of birdies for a chance to win a 2013 Buick Encore! Check out last year’s car giveaway…that could be YOU this year if you guess correctly, while supporting a great cause!



We end this week’s post by wishing our readers a happy and safe Father’s Day weekend, and inviting you to stop by next week for more updates on The McGladrey Classic and Team McGladrey.
