A TOUGH MISS FOR SIMPSON “As soon as I hit it, I looked up expecting it to go in, and saw it catch the right lip,” Simpson said. “It was unfortunate to end that way.” With his finish, Simpson moved atop the money list, taking a $363,029 lead over England’s Luke Donald with just the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic left to play. “My finishing second is going to make it a


lot harder for Luke to win the money title,” said Simpson. “But I’m sure he’s going to play well. He’s played well most every week this year. I still wouldn’t be surprised if I have a little work to do next week.” ■


“Is it the hardest course on the PGA TOUR? No. But just being hard doesn’t make


it the best.” – Davis Love lll on the Seaside Course


Charity Link


The McGladrey Classic has a positive economic impact on Georgia’s entire Golden Isles


community. Most importantly though, the event will be a tournament that benefits two non-profit organizations: Special Olympics and the Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Georgia. The Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Georgia is a charity identified by the Davis Love Foundation, the host organization of The McGladrey Classic dedicated to helping build a better future for vulnerable children and their families who are at risk of poor educational, economic, social and health outcomes. Special Olympics is the official golf platform charity of title sponsor McGladrey, LLP.

Course Insight


Sea Island Resort (Seaside Course)


“The Seaside Course was redone by Tom Fazio,” said Davis Love III, the tournament host and a long-time resident of the area. “It was an old, classic Colt and Alison nine holes, and Tom turned in another nine holes that matched that style. It’s a little bit of the Tom Fazio style with some Colt and Alison influences. If the wind blows, it can be very tough. If the wind doesn’t blow and the greens are soft, PGA TOUR players will have their way with any golf course. Is it the hardest course on the PGA TOUR? No. But just being hard doesn’t make it the best. I think it’ll be challenging. We’re hoping for some fast greens and, since the greens roll off a lot, there will be a variety of shots played around the greens.”
