The McGladrey Classic is a golf tournament on the PGA Tour named for its main sponsor, McGladrey, an accounting, tax and business consulting firm.[1] It had its first playing in October 2010 in St. Simons Island, Georgia at the Sea Island Golf Club.

Davis Love III and Zach Johnson helped to kick off the event in March 2010, where they helped to unveil the tournament's new logo. Love will be the chairman for the event.[2] The logo was painted by the world's fastest painter, Rock Demarco.[1]

The inaugural event in 2010 was won by Heath Slocum, by a margin of one stroke over Bill Haas.

The 2013 event, held in November 2013, was part of the 2013–14 PGA Tour season.
