10/10/10 Makes for a "Perfect 10" at The McGladrey Classic!





Below is a recap of activities from The McGladrey Classic for Sat., Oct. 9, from RSM McGladrey's Senior Director of Sports Marketing Ricki Laskey, who is posting daily updates from Sea Island. Check back again soon for the next update.

We’re in for another day watching a perfect sport on a perfect course with perfect weather here at The McGladrey Classic – a perfect 10-10-10! Today’s highlight will, no doubt, be presentation of the hand-crafted McGladrey Classic trophy, which is currently on display at the first tee, to the winner of this inaugural event. Take our online poll to let us know who you think will win.

Yesterday, despite making his first bogey in 50 holes at Sea Island, Heath Slocum posted a third straight round of 4-under 66 on Saturday to build a one-shot lead over Joe Durant and PGA TOUR rookie Troy Merritt going into the final round.

Twenty players were separated by five shots going into the last round, including Team McGladrey Member and Tournament Chair Davis Love III, who thrilled his hometown crowd with a 65. In his typical humble fashion, Davis’ reaction at the end of the day: "I'm doing better than I expected, but you know, you're supposed to play good on your home course."

Yesterday’s activities wrapped up with an oyster roast for clients and other key guests at The Cloisters’ Rainbow Island, which provided a casual backdrop – complete with fire pits, gingham table cloths draped across wooden picnic tables and daisies in mason jars as centerpieces – for relationship building.

We’ll be broadcasting live again on the Golf Channel from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., EST today. Tune in!
