Gearing up for the 2014 McGladrey Classic


There are a lot of big milestones this week, by far, the most somber is the 13-year anniversary of 9/11. Like many others across the country and around the world, we’re taking a moment to remember those who were affected by the tragic events that occurred in 2001, and we celebrate all of those who emerged as heroes.  




Earlier this week (Sept. 10) was golfing legend Arnold Palmer’s 85th birthday! The PGA TOUR created a wonderful tribute, which you can watch here.  

Also this week, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson is in Atlanta for the TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola. Zach tees off at 12:50 p.m. ET from tee No. 1 this afternoon (Thurs., Sept. 11).  Best of luck, Zach – we’re pulling for you!  

Earlier this week, Hodnett Cooper featured an article on how St. Simons Island is gearing up for the fifth McGladrey Classic. The relaxed atmosphere of the island and some of the PGA TOUR players who call St Simons home were highlighted. Below is an excerpt from the article, which can be read in its entirety here.  

St. Simons Island will again be pleased to have The McGladrey Classic and all the excitement it brings. We’ll be riding our bikes to the course and cheering for the locals. Then we’ll watch it all again on television, through the technicolor lens of The Golf Channel. And like Davis Love III himself, we’ll take it all in stride with the quiet confidence that we’ve been lucky enough to discover one of the most magical places on Earth. And we’re able to call it home.
 
And speaking of The McGldadrey Classic, we are 38 days away from sharing the beauty of Sea Island throughout this year’s tournament  - with those who visit in person and those who tune in to the Golf Channel (Thurs., Oct. 23 through Sun., Oct. 26). Want to catch the beauty of the island first-hand? Check out the complete schedule of events.

Check back next week for more updates on Team McGladrey and the 2014 McGladrey Classic.
