A week full of golf and events!


What an amazing golf tournament last weekend at the John Deere Classic! Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson played a spectacular game, carrying the lead into the final round. Ultimately, he came in a strong second. Congratulations Zach for an AMAZING nail-biter, and to winner Jordan Spieth, the youngest player to win a PGA TOUR event in 82 years!

This past Mon., July 16, PGA TOUR professionals, including Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco, came together for a golf clinic at the Aspen Golf Course. Chris, who has been helping Aspen Junior Golf for nearly a decade, participated in an auction allowing the winner to play with him during the Pro-Am tournament. To find out more about this event, check out the Aspen Times article.

Now back to Zach who who is playing at The Open Championship. He teed off this morning (July 18) at 10:06 a.m. local time, and has been holding the lead this morning! The man’s on fire! For those who will be watching The Open Championship from Sea Island, we highly recommend tuning in from the BREAKFAST AT THE BRITISH on Fri., July 19. (Sign up here). Get a chance to watch, play and enjoy some international treats!

Also this week: Chris DiMarco and fellow Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III are at the Senderson Farms Championship. Chris is in group five, which teed off at 7:44 a.m., and Davis is in group 28, which tees off at 12:55 p.m. Best of luck to our boys!

Next week, Mon., July 22, spend the day with golf’s next generation at Davis Love III’s Junior-AM Fundraiser! You can learn more and signup here. It’s a great way to entertain clients or reward employees.

Finally, The McGladrey Classic is spotlighting volunteer Jeanie Trotochaud this month. Jeanie is one of our Childcare Committee Volunteers. She and her husband travel from Athens, GA every year for The McGladrey Classic. McGladrey is so appreciative of all of our volunteers. We wouldn’t be able to have a successful tournament each year without their support! Read this month’s volunteer spotlight here.
 
This week’s unique image is Hole 2 of the Seaside Course is a Par 4 playing 415 yards. It’s averaged 3.97 strokes and yielded 241 birdies over the first 3 years. Find out more on hole 2 here.  

With The McGladrey Classic quickly approaching (now just a little more than three months away!), check out this year’s schedule of events and be sure to get your tickets and merchandise.
