McGladrey Congratulates Robert Streb, Winner of the 2014 McGladrey Classic
McGladrey LLP, the nation's leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, and title sponsor of The McGladrey Classic, congratulates PGA TOUR Professional Robert Streb, winner of the 2014 McGladrey Classic.
Streb won a three-man playoff over Brendon de Jonge and Will MacKenzie. MacKenzie was eliminated on the first extra hole with a bogey from the bunker. On the par-3 17th in the playoff, Streb's shot covered the flag and settled four feet below the hole. De Jonge missed a 35-foot birdie.
The 2014 McGladrey Classic is the first PGA TOUR victory for 27-year-old Streb, a Kansas State University graduate and New Smyrna, Florida resident. His score of 63 in the final round of the 2014 McGladrey Classic is his lowest career round. Streb won the Mylan Classic, a Web.com TOUR event in 2012. He won his first professional event, the Oklahoma Open in 2009. Streb had 12 career top-five finishes during his college career at Kansas State.
"We are thrilled to have Robert join the McGladrey tradition as winner of the fifth annual McGladrey Classic," said Joe Adams, managing partner and CEO of McGladrey. Robert's win comes at a particularly exciting time as we celebrate the fifth anniversary of the tournament – a true milestone. Also, earlier this week, we announced the extension of McGladrey's sponsorship of The McGladrey Classic through 2020, so this has been an exciting week, indeed. Congratulations to Robert on joining Chris Kirk, Tommy "Two Gloves" Gainey, Ben Crane and Heath Slocum as part of the history of McGladrey!"
"McGladrey and the game of golf share the core values of integrity, teamwork, respect, excellence and stewardship. Each year, The McGladrey Classic provides a platform for McGladrey to give back to the community through Birdies Fore Love and Youth Day, while also spending quality time with clients and potential clients," said Adams. "Through this year's Birdies Fore Love program, thousands of McGladrey employees donated more than $400,000 to charitable organizations in 75 cities nationwide."
The 2014 McGladrey Classic included a concert by country music artist Darius Rucker, which attracted thousands of fans, and a golf clinic for children, hosted by Southeast Georgia Health System. Other highlights included Youth Day; a putting contest with McGladrey leaders, PGA TOUR professionals and participants from Special Olympics and Boys and Girls Clubs of Southeast Georgia; and Military Appreciation Day. Proceeds from this year's McGladrey Classic will benefit Special Olympics, the Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Georgia and other local charitable organizations.
"An event of this magnitude would not be possible without the support of volunteers, and McGladrey would like to thank the 1,200 Sea Island residents and others who rallied around The McGladrey Classic again this year, sharing their Southern hospitality throughout the week and ensuring that each and every golf fan had an outstanding experience," said Andy Bosman, chief marketing officer with McGladrey. "Of course, the real winners this week are the Sea Island community and the charities that benefit from The McGladrey Classic through the Davis Love Foundation and Birdies Fore Love. We thank everyone who supported the tournament's fundraising efforts, and we are looking forward to returning for the tournament again each year through 2020."
Next year's McGladrey Classic is scheduled for Nov. 16 through 22, 2015.
