It’s Almost Tournament Time!


We’re one short month away from the start of the sixth annual McGladrey Classic (soon to be The RSM Classic)!

As the tournament gets closer, the 2015 player field continues to grow. Competing for a $5.7 million purse, 156 PGA TOUR professionals will tee off on the Seaside and Plantation Courses at Sea Island Golf Club. After two rounds of play, the field will be cut to 70 players (+ties) who will play Seaside. We’re excited that all previous McGladrey Classic champions – Heath Slocum (2010), Ben Crane (2011), Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey (2012), Chris Kirk (2013) and Robert Streb (2014) – will all be participating in this year’s tournament. The field is still growing but, at this point, some of the other familiar names you’ll see this year include six major champions: Angel Cabrera, Stewart Cink, Jason Dufner, Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III, Graeme McDowell and Vijay Singh. Check out the current player list on McGladreyClassic.com!

Speaking of The McGladrey Classic, we’re still seeking volunteers in three primary areas critical to efficient tournament operations: marshals, laser operators and standard bearers.

#‎DidYouKnow – Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson played The Presidents Cup with a record of 3-0-1 and has a career President’s Cup record of 10-6-1. He was awarded one of only two A+ grades by Global Golf Post for his playing in Korea. He had a big partnership with Phil Mickelson and also took down Jason Day in their singles match this year. Phenomenal playing, Zach!
