It’s Been a Busy Week at Sea Island!


What a week it has been down at Sea Island, GA! This past Monday (Sept. 17), The McGladrey Classic Media Day was held at Sea Island Resort, and included a three-hole Charity Skins Game, which raised $7,500 for local charities: The Gathering Place, Hospice of the Golden Isles, and United Way of Coastal GA.

Things are coming together at the tournament. Progress has been made on the Military Outpost, the McGladrey Chalet behind the 18th green, other venues near the 18th green, and the merchandise tent (which is at a new location this year – in the Miller64 Fan Village). Check out the McGladrey Classic Facebook page to see pictures of the construction.

As we’re gearing up for The McGladrey Classic and the Ryder Cup, McGladrey is sponsoring a series of digital and cable television ads. The digital ads are a great addition since they highlight Davis Love III and Joe Adams, managing partner and CEO of McGladrey LLP, reflecting on the importance of strong leadership, processes, teamwork, integrity and relationships – and how these attributes apply on the course and in the business world. You can check out these videos via numerous national outlets (CNBC.com, Fox News & Business, WSJ.com, etc.), and on Davis’ Ryder Cup Captains Blog.
A fun, new event is taking place this year at The McGladrey Classic – The 2012 Wiffle Ball Classic. Bring your family and friends and enjoy a game of wiffle ball played by PGA TOUR Players vs. their wives! Who do you think will win? The game takes place Mon., Oct. 15 at 5:30 p.m. at the Frederica Academy Baseball Field.

We can’t let this week go by without wishing Team USA and Team McGladrey Members Zach Johnson and Davis Love III good luck this week as the 2012 Ryder Cup activities start up on Sat., Sept. 22 and run through Sun., Sept. 30.

And with the 2012 McGladrey Classic quickly approaching, we want to remind our readers to purchase tickets now for the tournament and the Gary Allan Concert (Wed., Oct. 17). You can find out more details on tickets, packages, and merchandise here.

Check back in next week as we fill you in on more updates from The McGladrey Classic and Team McGladrey.
