Happy New Year!

Things are back in full swing here at RSM McGladrey after a brief hiatus over the holiday season. It was fun spending a little extra time with family and friends, and now we’re re-energized and looking forward to another golf-filled year!

This year’s golf activities for Team McGladrey, kicked off January 4, with Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson’s participation in the SBS (Seoul Broadcasting System) Championship at The Plantation Course at the stunning Kapalua Resort in Maui, Hawaii. Zach is playing in this “winners only” event with about 30 other PGA professionals. Lucas Glover, Geoff Oglivy (winner of the 2009 Mercedes-Benz Championship), Steve Stricker, Stewart Cink, Retief Goosen and other professional golfers will be competing for their share of $5.6 million.

In addition to some great golf and great prizes, this tournament has benefitted local charities for a number of years, raising more than $3 million to date. We’ll definitely be watching over the weekend to see not only who wins Sunday’s final round, but to hear about how this year’s tournament will benefit the community.

Finally, we’d be remiss if we didn’t take this opportunity to wish LPGA Tour Professional and Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Natalie celebrated her birthday January 7, and we hope it was a great one!
