Congratulations to Rory McIlroy on his big win last weekend at The Open Championship! McIlroy is now a three-time major championship – at the age of 25! Incredible. Way to go Rory, we wish you luck the rest of the 2014 season (and would love to see you at Sea Island for The McGladrey Classic in October)!
Moving on to Team McGladrey, our guys are spread across North America this week. Chris DiMarco is in Canada for the RBC Canadian Open. Chris teed off at 12:15 p.m., ET from tee No. 10. A few extended McGladrey “family members” are playing in the RBC as well: Heath Slocum (2010 McGladrey Classic winner), Ben Crane (2011) and Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey (2012). Zach Johnson is in Colorado for BMW Championship’s media day since he was the 2013 winner. And, Davis Love III is in his hometown and home to The McGladrey Classic, Sea Island. On Tues., July 22, the Davis Love III Junior Open started and is wrapping up today (Thurs., July 24). Speaking of media day and Sea Island, we’re already beginning planning for the 2014 McGladrey Classic Media Day – scheduled for Sept. 15. It’ll be here before we know it – as will this year’s tournament (Oct. 20 – 26). Eighty-seven days and counting…
And while we’re on the topic of The McGladrey Classic, have you checked out this year’s schedule of events? There will be lots of fun activities. Check out the schedule below, and remember to send us your pictures from the events you attend. You never know…we might just post them here on the McGladrey golf blog. Share your personal experiences from the tournament, as well. Use #McGladreyClassic and we’ll follow along with all of you. We are beyond excited about this year’s tournament – and hope you share in the excitement! In preparation, remember to purchase your tickets and merchandise.
