The McGladrey Classic: Youth Day Activities and a Special Concert


Yesterday afternoon’s Youth Day activities were truly the highlight of the day! Chuck “The Hit Man” Hiter wowed the crowd with his infamous trick shot show, and then a number of McGladrey leaders served as scorekeepers during the putting tournament with PGA TOUR professionals, Special Olympics, and Boys and Girls Club athletes. First, second and third-place winners took home trophies, but everyone who participated in the tournament left a little richer for the experience.

After a brief reception at The Lodge, clients and potential clients walked with their McGladrey hosts across the grounds to enjoy a concert under the stars (and a beautiful full moon) by Darius Rucker (formerly with Hootie and the Blowfish). In spite of a little rain near the beginning of the concert, the 5,000 fans that turned out for the event thoroughly enjoyed the performance, the food and the venue.

We were “up and at ’em” early this morning, accompanying Caddie for Love Winner Claudio Kawecki and Caddie Quest Winner Matt Stoner for interviews with the PGA TOUR Network’s Matt Adams, and are enjoying the beautiful weather we have here on Sea Island for the first official round of this year’s McGladrey Classic.

Check back tomorrow for our next update!
