The McGladrey Classic is Right Around the Corner - Vote for Davis Love III's Caddie


The McGladrey Classic is on our minds – because it is only two months away! The McGladrey Classic is a PGA TOUR event played on the Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club in Saint Simons Island, Ga. The tournament is hosted by the Davis Love Foundation, which was established by PGA Professional Davis Love III for the purpose of contributing to the well-being and progress of society by supporting both national and community-based programs that focus on children and their families. The McGladrey Classic is named for title sponsor McGladrey who is proud to support the Special Olympics and Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Georgia through the tournament.

This year McGladrey announced Caddie for Love, a national contest that will give one lucky golf enthusiast a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go inside the ropes with Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III (1997 PGA Champion and captain of the 2012 U.S. Ryder Cup team) during The McGladrey Classic this October. Nearly 3,000 fans have entered for a chance to win.

Contestants were asked to submit a photo and tell us why they should be chosen as Davis Love III’s caddie. A combination of public voting and a panel of judges helped us narrow down all submissions to 20 semifinalists. These semifinalists were asked to create a video, and we invited you to view and vote for your favorite video. 

See the videos on the View Contestants page and then cast your VOTE! The deadline for voting is August 26th.

Final judging will be decided by McGladrey and Davis Love III and announced September 15, 2011.
