Keeping Busy with Team McGladrey


What a weekend Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson had at the John Deere Classic! Congratulations on a strong second place finish, Zach! We hope you carry your great play across the pond this week to England for The Open Championship in Hoylake, England. Zach tees off at 1:38 p.m., ET from tee No. 1. ESPN will be airing the event, so we’ll be tuning in. Will you?  

 Related to the Open Championship, The Golf Channel’s Morning Drive featured Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco this week disussing Royal Liverpool’s holes 16-18 for the 2014 British Open. You can watch that video here.  And, yesterday (Wed., July 16), The Golf Channel shared a look from what one of the former Open champions wore. Check out the image to your right, take a minute to guess who it is. Curious? It was none other than John Daly! Daly continues to entertain golf fans with his eclectic on-the-course attire. And speaking of eye-catching golf attire, remember Bill Murray rocking the Pabst Blue Ribbon shorts? What do you think of these less-than-conventional choices?

Also in “current events,” Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III shared some cool news recently. Love Golf Management was selected to manage The Carolina Country Club in Spartanburg, SC! And next week (July 22-24), the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) and the Davis Love Foundation (DLF) will host the Davis Love III Junior Open at Sea Island Golf Club. The 78-player field will play 54 holes on Seaside, the same course the pros play during The McGladrey Classic. The AJGA and The McGladrey Classic are both celebrating their fifth anniversary of playing in the Golden Isles. If you’d like to learn more about this event or if you’re interested in playing on a foursome, you can contact Jason Ross at jross@AGJGA.or or 678-425-1652.

 Ninety-four days and counting until the 2014 McGladrey Classic (Oct. 20-26)! Check in every Thursday leading up to the tournament for more updates on Team McGladrey, The McGladrey Classic and other golf-related topics!
