Sea Island Resorts is Tops!


We returned from the recent holiday weekend to exciting news related to The McGladrey Classic. We previously mentioned that our 2013 field size might decrease to 120 players to accommodate this year’s post daylight savings date, however, that will not be the case. The 2013 event we will have a 132-player field! On top of that piece of good news, we learned that Sea Island Resort, where the tournament is held, recently announced that The Lodge and The Cloister have been ranked #1 and #2 resorts, and that The Spa ranked #4 hotel spa in the Continental U.S. in the Travel + Leisure 2013 World’s Best Awards! The Lodge and The Cloister host many of The McGladrey Classic’s evening activities during tournament week, and we know from experience that these high rankings are well deserved, based on the beautiful venues and the stellar service offered at each. Congrats to the teams on the island who made these rankings possible!


This is an exciting week for Team McGladrey, as all three members are playing at the John Deere Classic (JDC). Zach Johnson is the defending champion and has been getting some great media coverage leading up to the tournament. Check out KCCI’s coverage (below) of Zach talking about defending the title. Zach and Davis Love III are paired together in group 17, which teed off at 7:30 a.m. this morning (7/11). Chris DiMarco also teed off this morning with group 9 at 8:20 a.m.. Here at McGladrey, we will be tuning in and cheering on our guys!  Who are you rooting for this week?

Be sure to follow along to see these stunning images. If they don’t get you anxious for this year’s tournament, we don’t know what will!
