BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!


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:  

Team McGladrey Members Davis Love III and Zach Johnson are in Pittsford, NY for The PGA Championship which started yesterday (Aug. 8). For Round 2, Zach is in group 88, which teed off at 8:45 a.m. today, and Davis is in group 74, teeing off at 1:45 p.m. To watch live streaming of the PGA Championship, sign up here or if you are lucky enough to be near a television, TNT has coverage today from 1pm – 7pm EST.

With less than three months until the 2013 McGladrey Classic, tickets are now on sale! Choose from daily, weekly or special packages. As a reminder, youth, age 17 and under, receive free admission Wed., Nov. 6 through Sun., Nov. 10, when accompanied by a paying adult. Active and retired military get free admission Thurs., Nov. 7 through Sun., Nov. 10, when they show their official military IDs.

This week’s beautiful Seaside Course image is hole 5, which is a Par 4 playing 409 yards. It’s averaged 3.96 strokes and yielded 256 birdies and 3 eagles in the first 3 years. This is a risk-reward dogleg-right. The marsh on the right requires a 250-yard carry to cut off the corner and allow a short-iron shot to the green. The approach is to a large oval green with a bunker fronting the right and marsh areas to the right and long.

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.
“Having Toby Keith perform during The McGladrey Classic exceeds our expectations,” said Tournament Director Scott Reid. “Keith’s love for the game of golf, the outdoors, and his laid back attitude is a natural fit to the atmosphere here at The McGladrey Classic at Sea Island and the Golden Isles. We are confident that we’ll have a sell-out crowd.”

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.
