Fall Series adds Sea Island event

The PGA Tour is adding a Fall Series tournament at Sea Island, with RSM McGladrey agreeing to a three-year deal to become the title sponsor.

The McGladrey Classic will be played Oct. 7-10 on the Seaside Course at Sea Island, Ga.

Davis Love III , a 20-time winner on the PGA Tour and longtime resident at Sea Island, will serve as tournament chairman. Former Masters Tournament champion Zach Johnson , who has an endorsement contract with the tax and business consulting firm McGladrey, will be on the tournament board.

The purse will be $4 million. The announcement Tuesday gives the PGA Tour five tournaments in the Fall Series, which is played after the FedEx Cup portion of the schedule.

TIGER TALK: Sergio Garcia thinks it won't be long before Tiger Woods returns to tournament play.

Woods is taking an indefinite break from golf since his Nov. 27 car accident in Florida and subsequent revelations of extramarital affairs.

"The best thing for Tiger at the moment is to get on the course and do what he knows best," said Garcia, who had a personal rivalry on the PGA Tour with Woods over the past 10 years. "Only he knows when he is going to come back. I have got the feeling that it's going to be earlier that what everybody thinks."

The Spaniard spoke Tuesday before the Abu Dhabi Championship, where he will return to action Thursday after a seven-week layoff for treatment of a tendon problem in his right wrist.

MORE SURGERY: In his 25-year career in golf, Bart Bryant knows what it's like to play in pain. He has had elbow surgery three times, along with surgery on his knee and his left rotator cuff.

The bad news for the 47-year-old Bryant is that a sixth surgery is on the way.

Bryant, whose three PGA Tour titles include a six-shot victory over Woods at the 2005 Tour Championship, is preparing for surgery on his left wrist that most likely will keep him out the entire year.

HONORED: Dave Kindred , who has spent nearly 50 years writing about sports and has covered 75 majors, has been selected for the PGA Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism.

He will be honored April 7 in Augusta, at the Golf Writers Association of America annual awards dinner.
