Nothing Like a Little R&R (Recognizing and Reminiscing)


This week a couple of members of Team McGladrey, as well as “extended golf family” are in Charlotte for the Wells Fargo Championship. Davis Love III teed off at 8:10am ET on tee no. 10 and Zach Johnson tees off at 1:15pm on tee no. 1. All previous winners of The McGladrey Classic are competing as well, so we wish the best to luck to  all of them!

Quick mention from last week: Congratulations to Seung-Yul Noh on his first PGA TOUR win last weekend at the Zurich Classic, and to 2012 McGladrey Classic winner, Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey who finished in the top 10! Way to go, guys!

Sea Island, home of The McGladrey Classic, has been busy lately sharing lots of new updates. First, if you live on or near Sea Island, the First Tee Provider is offering a free golf clinic for those aged 7-12 Sat., May 3. The clinic will feature a PGA professional at Coastal Pines Golf Club in Brunswick from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m., ET. Spaces are limited so reserve your spot by sending an email to courtneystiles@gmail.com. You can find out more about this event on First Tee Provider’s Facebook page. Other recent updates from the island:

·         the Foundation hosted a Volunteer Chairmen’s Kickoff Luncheon,

·         McGladrey Classic recognized outstanding volunteers (read more),

·         Stunning old photos of Sea Island were shared (Rich in History), and

·         A new volunteer spotlight was released – Jeff Jones.

Remember: Later this month the Davis Love Foundation and Sea Island Golf Club will host the third annual Demo Day Fore Charity. Find out more information about this May 24 event, and how you can support it. It's a great cause.

It’s hard to believe that we’re just six short months from the 2014 McGladrey Classic (Oct. 20 - 26). Planning is in full swing (Pun intended!), and we’re looking forward to returning to Sea Island. Do you plan to attend this year’s tournament? It’s such an incredible event, and we’d love to share it with you! We’ve shared it here before but we're including the 2014 McGladrey Classic video in today’s post as well. It’ll definitely get you in the mood for the tournament! You can track the tickets page until sales open up later this spring!



See you back here next week!
