Club: Sea Island Resort (Seaside Course)
Location: St. Simons Island, Georgia
Date: October 15-21, 2012
Golf Betting Online: If it's October, that means that the men on the links are getting ready to close out the PGA Tour betting season! RSM McGladrey will be sponsoring a stop on the PGA Tour, the McGladrey Classic! Some of the best golfers from around the globe will all be meeting in the Peach State for this highly coveted event in which a purse of $4 Million will be up for grabs.
The Seaside Course in Sea Island Resort, Georgia, will be the host to this event this year, and it is expected that this will remain as a part of the PGA Tour Fall Series for a number of years to come.
The Fall Series is going to be used to determine who will get automatic exemptions into next year's tournaments, and only 30 will get that right. Needless to say, the stakes are going to be incredibly high in this first year tournament, as various golfers vie for those coveted automatic exemptions that will guarantee them spots into next year's biggest tournaments.
Sea Island native Davis Love III, a member of the US Ryder Cup team, is a native of Sea Island, GA and grew up in this town and on this golf course.
Zach Johnson and Jonathan Byrd are also PGA Tour members that are currently residing in Sea Island, which should give this event quite the hometown flavor.
The Seaside Course will be used for the McGladrey Classic this October. The course is a Par 70 that was originally built in 1929. It was updated by Tom Fazio is 1999 and was immediately named to the list of the "Top 100 Courses in the United States" list according to Golf Digest Magazine.
Regardless of who you are going to want to back in this great event this October, Bookmaker Sportsbook will have all of your options covered. The McGladrey Classic is one of the lasts tournaments for the year, and you certainly aren't going to want to miss out!
2012 McGladrey Classic Winner - Gainey wins McGladrey Classic with course-record 60
Tommy Gainey narrowly missed golf's magic number. He happily settled for a course-record 60 at Sea Island, and his first PGA Tour win Sunday in the McGladrey Classic.
Gainey became the fourth player this year to rally from at least seven shots behind in the final round to win on the PGA Tour. He made seven straight 3s on his way to a 29 on the back nine, and then had to wait more than two hours to see if Jim Furyk or anyone else could catch him.
No one came particularly close.
Tournament host and Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III drove into the water on the 16th and made double bogey. Furyk made a 12-foot par save on the 17th hole to stay one shot behind, but he pushed his approach well right on the 18th and made his first bogey in 56 holes.
"It's been a hard year for me and finally, we got it right," Gainey said.
Gainey, a 37-year-old from South Carolina with a homemade swing who is known as "Two Gloves" for wearing black gloves on each hand, joined a long list of unlikely winners this year. He was seven shots behind going into the final round, and his 60 was nearly 9 1/2 shots better than the average score.
2011 McGladrey Classic - Crane wins McGladrey, Simpson now leads money list
With the McGladrey Classic trophy in hand, Ben Crane headed home to Dallas for the birth of his third child.
Webb Simpson, with his second playoff loss of the year, headed to Disney for what could be his first PGA Tour money title.
Both players had reason to take victories, large and small, away from Sea Island.
Crane's win was a surprise in so many ways. For starters, he wasn't even sure he should be at this Fall Series event. His wife, Heather, is due next week, but they decided to have a Caesarean section at noon on Monday. Crane felt relatively certain from doctors' reports that she would not go into labor. That turned out to be the least of his worries.
On the Wednesday before his pro-am time, he thought about pulling out because of a sore left hip. Then, he was five shots behind going into the final round Sunday, and seven shots behind with 11 holes remaining.
