John Daly and Boo Weekley to Play in McGladrey Classic
Golf pros John Daly and Boo Weekley have been awarded sponsor exemptions to play in the third annual McGladrey Classic, the PGA TOUR event hosted by the Davis Love Foundation at Sea Island Golf Club October 15 – 21, 2012.
“We are pleased to add Daly and Weekley to the player field on sponsor exemptions,” said Scott Reid, Tournament Director.
Since turning pro in 1987, Daly has recorded five wins on the PGA TOUR, including two Majors – 1991 PGA Championship and the 1995 British Open. Daly makes the eighth Major winner confirmed for the 2012 McGladrey Classic.
Weekley’s two wins on the PGA TOUR were both in Hilton Head. He played high school golf with Heath Slocum, the 2010 McGladrey Classic Champion. The Florida resident remains a fan favorite in Georgia’s Golden Isles.
“There are so many great players. The selection of sponsor exemptions are always a difficult decision,” said Reid. “But we felt that Weekly and Daly were excellent candidates and wanted to give them the opportunity to play at this event.”
