The RSM Classic is a golf tournament on the PGA Tour, played in the autumn in Georgia. It debuted in October 2010 on St. Simons Island, Georgia at the Sea Island Golf Club. The tournament was known as the McGladrey Classic until 2015, when the title sponsor's name changed from McGladrey to RSM US.[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,[2] which was painted by Rock Demarco.[3] The inaugural event in 2010 was won by Heath Slocum, one stroke ahead of runner-up Bill Haas.

The event in November 2013 was part of the 2014 season. Beginning in 2015, the event is played on two courses, the other course being Sea Island's Plantation course, with the field expanded to 156 players.[1] It is also the final PGA Tour event of the calendar year.
