Well looky there, we get to cheer on all members of Team McGladrey this week! This doesn’t happen too often so we get excited when all three of “our guys” are playing in the same tournament. Zach Johnson, Chris DiMarco and Davis Love III are in Greensboro, NC for the Wyndham Championship. Here are their groups and tee times:

You might have noticed this week’s post is a day later than our usual Thursday postings. Well, the Davis Love Foundation was working on a big announcement about this year’s McGladrey Classic (Nov. 4 – 10), and we wanted to help share that news here, so we decided to postpone this week’s update until today, but first, here are a few updates on Team McGladrey and other items related to this year’s tournament:
Okay, we made you wait long enough, drum roll please…. superstar Toby Keith will perform “Live Under the Oaks” this year at the McGladrey Classic! The concert will take place on Wed., Nov. 6 at 7 p.m. ET. The concert, presented by Southeast Georgia Health System, will be held after the Official McGladrey Pro-Am event. We are so excited to team up with Toby Keith to continue one of McGladrey’s core values of stewardship. Proceeeds from the Live Under the Oaks Concert will benefit charities of the Davis Love Foundation.
This year’s concert is sure to be a sell-out, so order your tickets now via The McGladrey Classic website. Let us know if you plan to attend and if you’re as excited as we are for the performance!
Check back next week for more updates on The McGladrey Classic and Team McGladrey.

Wow! The 2013 McGladrey Classic has reached the double-digit countdown – only 94 days until tee off of this year’s tournament (Nov. 4-10). To share our anticipation, we thought our readers might enjoy the 2013 McGladrey Classic Excitement Video! Let us know what you think.
The official McGladrey Classic website has posted a new sponsor spotlight. This month we’re showcasing Nalley Auto Group, a proud supporter of the Davis Love Foundation since the inception of The McGladrey Classic in 2010 – initially through their support of the Player Transportation Program (they provided a fleet of courtesy vehicles for PGA TOUR Players to use while in the Golden Isles); then, beginning in 2012, Nalley continued their support through the Foundation’s latest fundraising tool, Birdies Fore Love. They have provided a Buick GMC vehicle to the donor who correctly guesses the number of birdies accumulated during The McGladrey Classic each year! Read more about Nalley Auto Group here.
Speaking of Birdies Fore Love, this year McGladrey LLP , title sponsor of The McGladrey Classic, launched a social responsibility program in support of the firm’s core value of stewardship. As part of this program and in conjunction with The McGladrey Classic, McGladrey offices across the country will raise funds for local charities that are focused on children and families. Leading McGladrey’s Birdies Fore Love program, is Chris Parrish, an employee based out of the firm’s Vienna, VA office, who was selected from a firm-wide process that allowed interested employees to submit applications for the role. Here’s a snippet of what Chris had to say:
We’re looking forward to having Chris join us at Sea Island this year. In the meantime, hole 4 of the Seaside Course is this week’s image. It is a Par 4 playing 429 yards. It’s averaged 4.16 strokes and yielded 147 birdies over the first three years. This dogleg-left has water on the right and a marsh on the left. The fairway bunker straightaway of the tee provides an excellent aiming point. The shot to the green requires distance control as the wide but shallow surface is protected by a large bunker on the left and collection areas short right and long.
