Was it coincidence?


Last week, The American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) and the Davis Love Foundation (DLF) hosted the third annual Davis Love III Junior Open at Sea Island. The 78-player field played 54 holes on the Plantation Course at Sea Island Resort on St. Simons Island, GA – one of the two courses the pros will play during the 2015 McGladrey Classic! We want to congratulate Emilia Migliaccio and Colin Kober for winning this year’s tournament in their respective divisions. Emilia earned a three day total score of 3 under par, while Colin finished the tournament at 7 under par. It was a great week at Sea Island Resorts. Way to go, Emilia and Colin!

Also in the news, Team McGladrey member Davis Love III visited Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota last week to go over the logistics for the Ryder Cup with Hazeltine National and PGA of America executives. Before doing that, Davis sat down for a Q&A to discuss the 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup team and more. You can read the full interview here.

Team McGladrey member Zach Johnson is still living in a dream after the second major win of his career. The PGA TOUR shared a great article about Zach and his decanter trophy from the British Open, including discussion about his Hall of Fame credentials and talk of Will Ferrell. I know, it seems odd to have actor/comedian Will Ferrell part of the article, but he might just be Zach’s good luck charm (if you believe in that)! The article says “Of the 495 congratulatory messages Johnson received after his win, one was from the comedian/actor. The two had sat next to each other at a small dinner party at St. Andrews, and exchanged numbers. After last week’s win, Ferrell told Johnson he has attended just two majors – the 2007 Masters and the 2015 Open Championship.” You can read the entire PGA TOUR article here.
