Yesterday’s RSM International Pro-Am was followed by one of our favorite aspects of The McGladrey Classic – Youth Day. Hundreds of children joined us for corn hole, face-painting and a clinic by last year’s tournament champion Ben Crane, who shared tips for living, including this advice: “If you want to do anything really good in life, you’ve got to love it.”
Following the clinic, McGladrey leaders teamed up with professional golfers for a putting contest with Special Olympics athletes and children from Boys and Girls Clubs of Southeast Georgia. We also filmed a public service announcement, which will be airing on the Golf Channel this coming weekend, so keep an eye out for that.
After Youth Day activities, McGladrey clients and guests enjoyed a concert under the stars with Gary Allan – quite a treat!
And now, today, after a couple of days of slightly overcast weather, the sun is out in full force for Round 1 of The McGladrey Classic, which also happens to be Military Appreciation Day – a fitting tribute to our country’s finest!
Check back tomorrow for more from Sea Island…
