This week, the U.S. President’s Cup roster spots were finalized. We are beyond excited to see that our very own Team McGladrey Members Zach Johnson and Davis Love III (captain’s assistant) will be on the team. Also this week, Chiquita Classic is taking place in Davidson, NC. Teeing off at 8:58 a.m. ET today (Sept. 5) is Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco in group no. 9.
Switching to OUR favorite tournament, The McGladrey Classic, this week’s Seaside Course image is hole 9 which is a par 4 playing 435 yards. It has averaged 4.03 strokes and yielded 153 birdies and 1 eagle in the first 3 years. This is another straightaway par 4 with water to the right and a large fairway bunker to the left off the tee. The shot to the green is slightly downhill with a large bunker to the left and a mound to the right of the green. Collection areas short, long and left of the green will require a well-placed approach shot.
And while we’re “on the island,” all of you UGA Alumni and fans, you might want to consider enjoying The McGladrey Classic from inside the DAWG HOUSE.
