Déjà vu? No…Tiger wins FedEx Cup for second time in three years!

Of course, we were a little partial to Team McGladrey member Zach Johnson during the recent FedEx Cup but, on behalf of Zach and the entire McGladrey team, we’d like to congratulate Tiger for winning this year’s FedEx Cup! Tiger took the title with a 1,080-point win over Phil Mickelson, who won the The Tour Championship, but finished second in FedEx Cup points – a thrilling end to a long PGA Tour season.

Following Mickelson (ranked in order) were: Steve Stricker, Jim Fuyrk, Sean O’Hair and our very own Zach Johnson! We’re proud of and inspired by the performance of these top professionals!

Coming up next for Zach is The President’s Cup at Harding Park Golf Course in San Francisco. Shortly after that, Zach will join fellow Team McGladrey members Chris DiMarco and Natalie Gulbis at The National McGladrey Team Championship in Pinehurst (Oct. 26-28). Check back here often for updates, and for news and photos from Pinehurst!

Rain, rain, go away...

To say that it’s been a wet week in Georgia is a vast understatement. Water hazards at East Lake Golf Club are full to the brim and, according to Fanhouse.com, “mud oozes from underfoot with every step taken.” Not a good week for golf.

We here at RSM McGladrey are anxiously watching the weather and hoping for drier conditions for the upcoming FedExCup. Of course, we’ll be pulling for Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson, but are excited about seeing #1 ranked Tiger Woods, #2 Steve Stricker, #3 Jim Furyk and all of the other great golfers play, as well.

Who are you pulling for?

On a side note, CONGRATULATIONS PGA Tour veteran Kenny Perry for being named the 2009 Payne Stewart Award winner – quite an honor!

Go Zach!


We’ve been excitedly watching Team McGladrey Member and PGA Tour Professional Zach Johnson’s recent performances, and just can’t contain our excitement any longer! Zach is currently ranked #4 in the FedExCup. He has already had two impressive wins this year – at the Sony Open in Hawaii and the Texas Valero Open, along with eight Top 10 and 14 Top 25 finishes.

You can bet that all of us here are RSM McGladrey – as well as fellow Team McGladrey members Chris DiMarco and Natalie Gulbis – will be pulling for Zach in the days ahead as he attempts to become the FedEx Cup Champion, and we’re looking forward to coming together for The McGladrey National Team Championship in Pinehurst next month (Oct. 26-28).

If you’d like to share your best wishes for Zach, post them here – we’ll pass them along so he’ll know you’re rooting for him. With the right team, anything’s possible!

On Our Minds

We’re watching Team McGladrey members Natalie Gulbis and Zach Johnson, as Natalie plays in the P&G Beauty NW Arkansas Championship in Rogers, Arkansas, and Zach plays in the BMW Championship at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Lemont, Illinois. Go, Natalie and Zach!

We’re looking forward to seeing all three Team McGladrey members – Natalie, Zach and Chris DiMarco) in Pinehurst next month at the third annual National Team Championship (Oct. 26-28).

And while our minds are on the great game of golf, we, like millions around the world, are taking time to pause and remember those impacted by the devastating events that took place on this date eight years ago. Our hearts go out to those who lost loved ones during the attacks of 9/11. Those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country and for their fellow man will never be forgotten.

That spirit of giving brings the partnership between The McGladrey Team Championship and Special Olympics to the forefront of our minds. We would like to thank those of you who have so generously donated items for the auction that will be held during The National Team Championship. Special Olympics athletes from across the country will benefit from the donations that will be raised by the auction.
