CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- If you have what it takes to caddie for PGA TOUR great Davis Love III, McGladrey is offering you the chance by announcing a new nationwide "Caddie for Love" contest at www.CaddieForLove.com. The winner will caddie for the 2012 U.S. Ryder Cup captain during The McGladrey Classic pro-am on Oct. 12, 2011.
Caddie for Love is sponsored by RSM McGladrey, Inc. and McGladrey & Pullen, LLP, which operate under the McGladrey brand as one of the nation's largest providers of assurance, tax, and consulting services.
"The golfer/caddie relationship is an important one, similar to the relationship McGladrey has with its clients," said Davis Love III, a member of Team McGladrey and the tournament host of The McGladrey Classic, the newest PGA TOUR Fall Series event. "I understand what it means to assemble a great team on the course. In this contest I'm looking for someone who, like the folks at McGladrey, understands my needs, my game, and my love and passion for the game of golf."
Davis ranks sixth in career earnings and is one of the most highly respected golfers currently on the PGA TOUR. Over his 25-year professional career he has captured 171 Top 10 finishes and racked up 20 career PGA TOUR victories. In 1997 he won the PGA Championship and in 2012 Davis will lead Team U.S.A. as Ryder Cup captain.
"Through the creation of the McGladrey "Caddie for Love" contest, we are excited to further expand our 'Experience the Power of Being Understood' campaign and our support of the PGA TOUR and the game of golf," said RSM McGladrey Chief Marketing Officer Mark Audino. "For years we've supported the game of golf, title sponsored a PGA TOUR event and sponsored top PGA and LPGA TOUR players Davis Love III, Zach Johnson, Chris DiMarco and Natalie Gulbis. We have now created a unique, online, socially driven contest that will allow us to share our love for the game of golf and our Power of Being Understood messaging with fans in an interactive manner."
