2013 McGladrey Classic Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

The PGA Tour is back on U.S. soil, pretty good field this week

http://www.pgatour.com/news/2013/11/06/mcgladrey-classic-drawing-elite-players.html

Quote:

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- The first snow of the year fell across the Midwest a couple weeks ago. The NFL and college football are deep into their seasons.

But on Wednesday at Sea Island Golf Club, the sun sparkled off St. Simons Sound behind a driving range that was packed with players from end to end -- so much so that Webb Simpson had to find a spot next to a pro-am participant.

"It's beautiful," the former U.S. Open champion said as he prepared for The McGladrey Classic. "I love playing golf tournaments that are near the beach.

"The golf course is awesome. It presents challenges and you have to think. There's a lot of reasons to come here."

Given a busy schedule with tournaments around the world, choosing where to play isn’t always easy. But tournament host Davis Love III also makes it difficult to say no to playing here.

Earlier in the week, he threw a huge pro-am party at his house. He’s also hosting a handful of players there for the week and the barn out back will even play host to a petting zoo.

"I hear there's a pig, so that's going to be pretty exciting," said Love, whose tournament is now in its fourth year. "There was a lot of work going on, a lot of sleepless nights from my team and my family."

There was also an increase in FedExCup points, from 300 to a full 500, and a significant increase in prize money. This year’s purse is $5.5 million, up from $4 million a year ago.

The impact on the community isn’t lost, either.

Love’s "Birdies for Love" program has raised more than $450,000 in the community and a Wiffle Ball game earlier in the week attracted a number of players, again all for a good cause.

"There's so much going on with our event that it just grows and grows every year," Love said. "Pretty much everything we've wanted to do (McGladrey) supported and helped us do it."

I'm pulling for Davis love III.  he was my favorite pro when I first started golfing, and it looks like he's playing pretty well. Would like to see Jim F. up there as well, gotta root for the older guys.. :-D

Jim F? Furyk? I didn't see his name on the list. I'm going to take an outsider and root for Daniel Summerhays, he had a couple great tourney's last year but couldn't close on any on the final day. Maybe this is his year.

I like Webb too.

Well shoot, I just assumed he'd be playing. I didn't check the list... :doh:

That's just the guy's name; it's a huge stretch to find any unfortunate context that can be read into that headline. If the copy editors are trying to sneak something in on us, they can do much better...

    • You put on quite a show the final two days.  Fun to watch man.  You found your long game and were putting to one of those oversized holes I think!    I just wish my long game would have been settled enough to give you a closer match.  I had a blast, learned a lot and enjoyed competitive golf for once.   It was great to play with you and learn from you @NCGolfer.  I truly enjoyed our pairings.  Hopefully I was not too much of a distraction out there with my long game struggles.    Thanks for being a good sport about it if anyway.   I really enjoyed playing with @bkuehn1952 as well.  I had a very tough first nine out there but Brian kept things positive and we battled through it.  We played much more competitively the second time out as shown in Drew's scorecard post.  We found a way to make our abilities work together, and it was a lot of fun!  I enjoyed meeting everyone else and a lot of the guys I have not had a chance to yet.  I want to mention @jsgolfer who was my roommate and our MVP.  I wish I was able to see Jerry play more.  What I did see was a treat to watch.  He is also one of the most kind and considerate people I have met in a long time.  A true class act.   Yellow ball or white ball I take responsibility for my shots out there no matter how much weight was on each individual one.  I had a 10' putt or so for a half point on the front Saturday that I lipped out after I thought I put a great stroke on it.  I should have put that one in.  I sure hit some bad ones off the tee and I am just thankful that I did not cost my team the cup.   Finally I just wanted to say one more time, thank you to @iacas and @mvmac.  I know that this was a lot of work for you organizing and making this a truly special experience for us all.  I hope everyone who was there could see how much work this must have been for them and how it was done to give an incredible experience to the participants.  Thank you guys so much!  
    • Finally again a (really) good tournament from Joost. Battling for victory until the final hole, coming up one shot short against Garcia to get a second place. Which raises him right back into the top 100 of the OWGR. Hopefully a good finish of the season in The Final Series, good points and money to earn there.
    • My answer depends on what you mean by "manage on the course."   I have a bag full of swing thoughts, because I have made the same mistakes so many times and corrected things so many times.  It's like a bag full of clubs.  I carry them around with me but I only use one at most when I'm addressing my shot.  But which one it is depends on what happened on the last shot or sometime in the recent past.  Then there are the times I have no swing thought at all, but hit a great shot.  But definitely I cannot have more than one swing thought in my head when I'm about to hit a shot. 
    • I voted 4 and 0, not based on the definitions you provided,  but based on your vote (9 and 1), and how I would compare my game to yours.   I think if you hit a solid shot 9 out of 10 times, then I should say I hit that kind of shot 4 out of 10 times.   I believe you would define "sweet spot" as much much smaller and more elusive than I would, but we have to agree on a definition, so taking your definition, which is really, "a spot you hit 1 out of 10 times," then I should say less than that.  So I said 0. 
    • I've been trying to get all the stuff J.C. talks about, but it's' tough. On a more serious note, I try to limit it to one or two.
