DIVOTS: The McGladrey Classic at Sea Island might not be hurt so much next year from missing players who were in Shanghai the previous week. Tournament officials said the 2014 event will be held Oct. 23-26, before the tour does its two-week Asia swing.

Sea Island is the unofficial headquarters for Georgia fans going to the game. … Los Angeles Lakers great Jerry West is stepping away from his role as executive director of the Northern Trust Open at Riviera after just more than three years.

STAT OF THE WEEK: Eleven Americans are in the final stage of European Tour Q-school, up from five a year ago.
