McGladrey Classic kicks off

GLYNN CO., GA (WTOC) – The McGladrey Classic, a new PGA golf tournament, teed off Thursday morning in Glynn County.

Sea Island native Davis Love III is hosting the tournament and he's bringing a lot of friends with him as they practiced earlier this week. Players include two-time Heritage champ Boo Weekley, Zack Johnson, and Jonathan Byrd at the Sea Island Club.

A large part of the draw that brought an event to the seaside course was in the number of tour professionals who call the area home.
