Bill Haas travels back to Sea Island, Georgia 10-22-2014
Bill Haas
Bill Haas added The McGladrey Classic back to his schedule and makes his second start in Sea Island, Georgia later this week.
Haas finished alone in second in 2010 but has skipped the three events at the Seaside Course since. There is plenty of room for speculation as to why he chose to start the 2014-15 season this week. For starters, he's coming off his first season without a win since breaking through in 2010. That could have him hungry to get back in the winner's circle. His father, Jay, is the Presidents Cup captain in 2015. Perhaps he's hoping to bag some points in an effort to make that squad on merit and prevent putting his father in the awkward situation of potentially burning a captain's pick on him. Either way, Bill is among the elite in the field and his only history here was excellent.
Gainey the 2012 McGladrey champ; back again 10-22-2014
Tommy Gainey
Tommy Gainey picked up the only win of his PGA TOUR career in The McGladrey Classic in 2012 and has returned to play the Seaside Course this week.
Two Gloves finished 156th in the 2013-14 FedExCup standings, meaning he is playing this season with only Past Champion status. He will be heavily reliant on sponsor exemptions for tee times, so it is imperative that he make the most of any and every opportunity. He got into the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas last week and tied for 72nd.
Slocum a past winner at the Seaside Course 10-22-2014
Heath Slocum
Heath Slocum returns to the site of his most recent PGA TOUR victory for The McGladrey Classic this week.
Slocum's win on Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course in 2010 was the fourth of his career. In his subsequent three trips, he owns two other top-20 finishes to go with a T61 in 2012. He is subsequent to the Tour reshuffle this season after securing his status via the Tour Finals in 2014. Should he crack the top 20 for a fourth time in five tries in Sea Island, it would serve as a nice cushion for future reshuffles.
Josh Teater gathers an unexpected tee time 10-22-2014
Josh Teater
Josh Teater has been added to the published field of this week's McGladrey Classic.
He started the week as the ninth alternate, but gained entry when Trevor Immelman withdrew. Teater finished 2013-14 ranked 148th in the FedExCup standings, so he has conditional status, but this week's start has to feel like a welcome surprise. One new wrinkle this season is that the guys in the conditional status category are going to be reshuffled periodically, so he can make a move from the back end with a fast start. Teater tied for 32nd in his last visit to Seaside in 2011.
Immelman was in, but now he's out at Seaside 10-22-2014
Trevor Immelman
Trevor Immelman has been removed from the published field of this week's McGladrey Classic.
He gained entry on Tuesday as the eighth alternate, but probably shouldn't have. It's an ironic twist, too, given he rose in the ranks to qualify on merit, but played in the first two events on sponsor exemptions.
Todd back home in GA for McGladrey Classic 10-22-2014
Brendon Todd
Brendon Todd makes his 2014-15 season debut at this week's McGladrey Classic.
After a breakout season for the ages, the University of Georgia product will look to kick-start the season at a familiar venue. He missed the cut in his 2012 McGladrey debut but returned last year with a T16. The latter should be closer to expectations this week for gamers as Todd finished top 20 in 12 of his 29 starts last season. He will have big shoes to fill after the groundwork he laid last year.
Henley heads home for McGladrey Classic 10-22-2014
Russell Henley
Russell Henley heads back to Saint Simons Island, Georgia, for his second try at The McGladrey Classic.
The Georgia Bulldog had high expectations entering last year's edition, but faded to T65 after a nice opening 1-under 69. With the Seaside Course hosting the annual SEC Championship, Henley has plenty of experience on the venue and has already won twice in his young career. On the flip side, he has been too up-and-down for most gamers liking, but this is one of the weeks where the arrows should be pointing upward.
J. Kelly cruising along ahead of McGladrey 10-22-2014
Jerry Kelly
Jerry Kelly shared 39th placed in his 2014-15 opener and will look to build some momentum at this week's McGladrey Classic.
Kelly refuses to age, going 17-for-23 last season with a pair of podium finishes, to boot. He's been here before, posting two top 35s at Sea Island before missing the cut in 2012 and withdrawing last year. With 10 straights cuts made, Kelly is someone gamers should have a look at in salary-cap formats.
Collins grabs a start at McGladrey Classic 10-22-2014
Chad Collins
Chad Collins prepares for his 2014-15 season debut this week at The McGladrey Classic.
Collins finished in a share of 33rd place in his 2010 Seaside debut but took a step back last year, shooting 6-over-par on his way to a missed cut. He was 11-for-28 last year on TOUR to miss the FedExCup Playoffs but finds his way back via the Tour Finals. Collins has finished outside the top 30 in each of his last 15 TOUR starts, missing the cut in 11 of those. Gamers should avoid until he shows signs of a turnaround.
Fraustro first start at The McGladrey Classic 10-22-2014
Oscar Fraustro
Oscar Fraustro will take his first peek at the Seaside Course at this week's McGladrey Classic.
The PGA TOUR rookie is one for three in his career on the PGA TOUR, but will get a few more chances to improve upon that with his fresh TOUR card earned via the Tour Finals. Given his low ranking in the reshuffle, these early-season events will be of utmost importance as it will impact directly how many fields Fraustro can find himself in. Gamers might want to watch him closely this week, but he doesn't possess much value in any fantasy format.
