The McGladrey Classic is a golf tournament on the PGA Tour, played in the autumn in Georgia. It debuted in October 2010 in Sea Island at the Sea Island Golf Club. McGladrey is an accounting, tax, and business consulting firm.[1]

Resident tour pros Davis Love III and Zach Johnson kicked 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, one stroke ahead of runner-up Bill Haas.

The 2013 event, held in November 2013, was part of the 2014 PGA Tour season.

Beginning in 2015, the event will be played in November and will expand the field to 156 players. It will also add a second course to the event.
