Not many things go better together than the U.S. Open and Father’s Day. We know any dad who is a golf junkie is going to have an amazing weekend! Team McGladrey member Zach Johnson is in Pinehurst, NC this week to play in the second major of the year, teed off this morning (June 12) at 7:40 a.m. ET on tee No. 10. Best of luck this weekend, Zach! And we wish all those dads out there who will be tuning in or watching in person a HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
Last week was a big week for McGladrey and for The McGladrey Classic. First of all, The McGladrey Classic debuted this year’s 2014 McGladrey Classic “Love It” shirts. Head over to our merchandise site to browse all the items and to purchase your attire for this year’s tournament! As always, we’d love to see pictures of you sporting McGladrey Classic gear! Be sure to tag us on Facebook!
Don’t forget! Birdies Fore Love goes LIVE on Mon., June 16. This year’s Birdies Fore Love leader is Teresa Carlin. She’ll be a guest blogger around tournament week! In this role, Teresa will be responsible for leading McGladrey’s employee corporate social responsibility efforts related to this year’s tournament. To date, The McGladrey Classic has raised more than $1.8 million for national and local charitable organizations. $430,000 of last year’s donations were raised by McGladrey employees and clients through Birdies Fore Love! With corporate responsibility being such a key focus for McGladrey, we’re thrilled to continue our firm’s philanthropic efforts through The McGladrey Classic.
Another item from last week: Sea Island, home of The McGladrey Classic, is back in the news! The Cloister and The Lodge have been recognized by travelers on the world’s largest travel site and have been awarded the 2014 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence! So if you needed a reason to join us for The McGladrey Classic in October – now you have it! Rooms fill up quickly, though, so make your reservations today!
To wrap up this week’s post, we want to congratulate Ben Crane, 2011 McGladrey Classic champion, on his big win last week at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Fantastic job, Ben! We’re so proud that, as a member of the McGladrey “family”, he had such a great week!
Check back next week for more updates on Team McGladrey and the 2014 McGladrey Classic (Oct. 20-26)!
