Things are shaping up nicely for the third annual McGladrey Classic to be held at beautiful Sea Island this Oct. 15 – 21. In fact, we had a small contingent there this week for planning meetings (and understand they had some good ol’ Southern Soul BBQ while they were there). Here’s a quick peek at the schedule:
- Oct. 15 – Practice rounds for pros
- Oct. 16 – Practice rounds for pros, Pro-Am pairings party, Meet the pros event
- Oct. 17 – Youth Day, Official Pro-Am, Gary Allan concert
- Oct. 18 – Military Appreciation Day, Round 1
- Oct. 19 – Round 2
- Oct. 20 – Round 3, wear your college colors
- Oct. 21 – Final round, trophy presentation on 18th green
We hope to see you at Sea Island! In the meantime, remember that Team McGladrey members Davis Love III and Zach Johnson are having a little friendly competition in the form of a Twitter Match-Up, which has them squaring off to see who can gain the most new followers. Who do you want to win? If you’re not currently following them on Twitter, do it before July 1 for a chance to win a signed TOUR staff bag from the winning golfer. (Davis’ Twitter handle is @love3d; Zach’s is @ZachJohnsonPGA.)
Earlier this week, Davis took over the PGA TOUR’s Facebook page to answer fans’ questions. He got so many, he couldn’t answer them all! Davis tweeted on Twitter that he had a lot of fun with the Q&A, and that he might be doing something similar on Twitter soon. Check out the Q&As from the TOUR’s Facebook page.
Davis also updated his Captain’s Blog on The McGladrey Classic website this week. He had a lot to say about his health, his game, how others are playing. He also said that they’re getting close to announcing two assistant captains. Any guesses on who they might be? Find out more on the blog.
Zach and fellow Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco are both playing in the Traveler’s Championship in Connecticut this week. Needless to say, we’ll be pulling for them over the weekend. Who do you think will win?
We hope you’ll check back next week for our next update.
