Join Me for The McGladrey Classic - An Invitation from PGA TOUR Professional Zach Johnson


The McGladrey Classic tees off next week (Oct. 10 – 16) at beautiful Sea Island, home to Team McGladrey members Zach Johnson and Davis Love III. This week, we'd like to share with you a special guest post by Zach…
My home of Sea Island has been abuzz for the past several weeks gearing up for The McGladrey Classic. Last year’s inaugural event brought more than 20,000 golf enthusiasts to Sea Island Golf Club’s Seaside Course, and more than 1,200 volunteers showed them the true meaning of Southern Hospitality.

Next week, we’ll welcome golf enthusiasts from around the world back to Sea Island for the second McGladrey Classic. I’m particularly excited this year to have Matt Stoner, winner of Caddie Quest (a contest for employees of title sponsor McGladrey) caddying for me during the RSM International Pro-Am Wed., Oct. 12. Fellow Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III is equally excited to have the winner of the nationwide Caddie for Love contest caddying for him that same day.

We’ll wrap up the afternoon of the Twelfth with a kids putting contest, and will end the evening with a concert by Darius Rucker. It’ll be a busy but fun day – just one of many during the tournament. A few other tournament highlights include a Pro-Am party at Davis and Robin Love’s home, a trick shot show by Chuck “The Hit Man” Hiter and a clinic by Nancy Lopez. We’ll end the week with presentation of The McGladrey Classic trophy to winner on the 18th green.

If you can’t make it in person, I hope you’ll tune in to the Golf Channel for live coverage of The McGladrey Classic, and to see the beautiful place I call home – Sea Island! (You can also check back here for daily updates from the tournament throughout the event.)
