We hope all of our readers enjoyed a nice Father’s Day weekend! If you didn’t see it last week, Golf Digest shared a great video on PGA TOUR players and their sons, which features Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III and his son, Dru. Check out the article and video here.

Another video you might want to check out is one the Davis Love Foundation recently shared on charitable giving. #DidYouKnow that The McGladrey Classic is the largest fundraiser of the Davis Love Foundation? Dollars raised through the tournament support local and national charitable organizations focused on improving the lives of children and families in need. Check out the video below!

Adding a little fun to your Thursday, let’s see if you can spot the five differences between these two photos of 2013 McGladrey Classic champion, Chris Kirk. List them in the comments!

What a weekend for 2013 McGladrey Classic winner, Chris Kirk, who won last week’s Crowne Plaza Invitational! We’re proud of you, Chris, and are glad to have you as a member of the extended McGladrey Classic “family”!   

This week, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson and other members of our extended family are in Irving, TX for the AT&T Byron Nelson tournament. Zach is in good company with past McGladrey Classic winners Heath Slocum (2010), Ben Crane (2011)  and Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey (2012) all playing in this year’s tournament. Zach teed off at 8 a.m., CT, from tee No. 10; from tee No. 1, Heath teed off at 8:10 a.m.; teeing off at 12:40 p.m., were both Tommy (at tee No. 1) and Ben was (from No. 10). Best of luck to all of our “guys”! We’ve got our fingers crossed for good weather for the weekend!  

Remember: starting next Monday (June 1), registration will be open for NEW volunteers for the 2015 McGladrey Classic! To sign up to help during this year’s tournament at beautiful Sea Island, visit  https://www.dlfvolunteers.com and enter a username and password.  You’ll then create a profile, and select and submit your top three committee choices. Or… you can head over to McGladrey Classic’s Volunteer Registration page and get added to the communication list!

Speaking of The McGladrey Classic, a great article was featured in Sea Island Life on how the game of golf is completely different due to today’s technology, instructions and athletes. It’s a great read, and even provides breakdown of modern golfers’ swings – including the one and only – Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson! Read the article here [page 18].

And taking a step back in time, we thought our readers would enjoy a little #ThrowBackThursday. Check out this picture of the original clubhouse at Sea Island Golf Club. [Photo credit: Sea Island Resorts] It’s changed quite a bit, but has kept its classic and Southern style. We are very fortunate to call Sea Island home to the McGladrey Classic, and are looking forward to returning to the island for this year’s tournament in November. Between now and then, be sure to check back each week for more updates on Team McGladrey and the 2015 McGladrey Classic [Nov. 16-22].

Beauty of the Course

0 comments

Team McGladrey is taking this week off, and while things are calm in the Team McGladrey world, The McGladrey Classic received some nice coverage in the news. Golf Advisor noted Sea Island Resort’s Seaside Course when discussing the PGA TOUR’s most beautiful courses. In the article, it says the course would rank in the top five tournaments every year. An excerpt from the article describes part of the course – “The front nine by legendary English architects Harry S. Colt and Charles Alison dates to 1929. The back nine in the marsh was originally created by Joe Lee in the 1970s, but Tom Fazio worked his magic during a renovation completed in 1999 that created today's routing, which is ranked among the top 100 public courses in the country. His bold circular bunkers, faithful to Colt and Alison's distinctive style, add a special architectural touch, often flashing up in front of tiny greens.” 

Registration for new volunteers for the 2015 McGladrey Classic [Nov. 16-22] is right around the corner! June 1 registration will open up for all. Returning volunteers can sign up now! To sign up, simply go to https://www.dlfvolunteers.com and enter a username and password.  You’ll then create a profile, then select and submit your top three committee choices. You can also head over to McGladrey Classic’s Volunteer Registration page and get added to the communication list!
