Congratulations to Heath Slocum - Winner of the Inaugural McGladrey Classic!





Ricki Lasky, RSM McGladrey’s senior director of sports marketing has been posting daily updates from the inaugural McGladrey Classic throughout the event. Below is her final post from Sea Island. We hope you enjoyed the event, that you’ll continue to read our golf blog throughout the year, and that you you’ll join us again next year for the second McGladrey Classic.

Yesterday, we celebrated the winner of the first-ever McGladrey Classic: Heath Slocum.

Heath was in a three-way tie for the lead in the final hour of the tournament, having led by three shots on the front nine. First , Robert Allenby blocked his tee shot into the hazard on the 18th hole and took a double bogey. Then, Davis Toms three-putted from just inside 15 feet on the 16th hole in the group ahead of Heath, giving Heath a sudden two-shot lead, allowing him a cautious bogey on the final hole to finish at 14 under 266.

Team McGladrey Member and Tournament Chair Davis Love III joined RSM McGladrey President and COO C.E. Andrews and McGladrey & Pullen Managing Partner and CEO Dave Scudder on the 18th green to present The McGladrey Classic trophy to Heath. The group then joined clients and other special guests for a celebratory champagne toast at the Oak Room at The Lodge where we celebrated a “Perfect 10” on 10/10/10.

Based on feedback from our clients and guests throughout the week, the inaugural McGladrey Classic was a BIG success. On behalf of the entire team at McGladrey, I’d like to extend our appreciation to the Davis Love Foundation, Sea Island and the 1,200 volunteers who truly understood the importance of teamwork in pulling together an experience that is destined to become a tradition.

I look forward to seeing you back at Sea Island next year!
