Top Two FedEx Cup Leaders Commit Early to McGladrey Classic
SAINT SIMONS ISLAND, GA – Charley Hoffman, who has committed to play in The McGladrey Classic PGA TOUR event, won the Deutsche Bank Championship on Labor Day with a nine-under-par 62. His stunning performance included 11 birdies for a five-shot victory and a total of 262 for the tournament.
“I hadn’t had a clue how many birdies I had made, but I was just trying to keep making birdies,” Hoffman said.
With Hoffman’s triumph, winners of the first two PGA TOUR Playoff events and FedEx Cup leaders plan to play in the inaugural McGladrey Classic at Sea Island's Seaside course October 6-10, 2010. After the DBC, Hoffman is ranked second with 3,259 points.
Matt Kuchar, who won The Barclays and heads the FedEx Cup contenders with 4,235 points, plans to play in The McGladrey Classic the week after competing for the Ryder Cup. Also on the USA Ryder Cup Team and playing The McGladrey Classic is Zach Johnson, 2007 Masters winner and Team McGladrey member.
“It will be exciting to welcome Matt and Zach home to Coastal Georgia after playing for the Ryder Cup,” said Mark Love, Executive Director of the tournament. “Commitments to play here by Charley, Matt and Zach reinforce what we’ve been speculating. We’re going to have a great field and players and spectators are going to be treated to superb golf and hospitality.”
Professionals have until October 1 to commit. “Many players will wait until the deadline to commit,” said Love. “However we encourage fans to purchase tickets early since a limited number are available.”
