Gary Allan Joins The McGladrey Classic…and Other News from Sea Island

Big news this week! Country Music Singer Gary Allan, who burst on the scene with “Her Man,” which peaked at #7 on the charts, will perform at this year’s McGladrey Classic. The concert is scheduled for Wed., Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m. You can listen to some of Gary’s songs here. Which is your favorite? Tickets for the concert and for the tournament are now on sale, and can be purchased online, by the way. Get yours now!

Congratulations to Carl Pettersson for picking up his fifth PGA TOUR victory last weekend at the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town, and to our very own Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson for finishing in the No. 2 slot!

Unfortunately, a cracked rib kept Team McGladrey Member and five-time Heritage champion Davis Love III out of last week’s field, but he is confident he’ll be ready to play again by the Zurich Classic or Wells Fargo Championship. You can hear first-hand from Davis about how the bunny slopes in Sun Valley, Idaho contributed to his injury. And while Davis didn’t make it to the Heritage, there was a Love at Harbour Town – Mark Love, Davis’ brother and the executive director of The McGladrey Classic, caddied for Chris Kirk.

This week, The McGladrey Classic announced the 2012 tournament’s Tix4Kids charity program participants. You can stay current on this and other announcements from the tournament website, Facebook and/or Twitter accounts, and you can now follow them on Pinterest, as well.

Also this week…a special birthday: Happy 90th to the Texas Valero Open!
