It's a great week for Team McGladrey!

Alright…suffice it to say, the entire team here at RSM McGladrey is excited about this week’s golf activities. Team McGladrey is being well-represented on the links this week.

Natalie Gulbis is in Mexico participating in the Tres Marias Championship, where she teed off earlier today with Lorena Ochoa and Ai Miyazato. Natalie couldn’t ask for a better pairing as she will enjoy a front row seat as her friend Lorena retires and she moves on to focus on other interests in her life. On behalf Team McGladrey and the entire RSM McGladrey team, we’d like to wish Lorena the best!

Zach Johnson is enjoying the beautiful North Carolina blue skies this week as he competes at the Quail Hollow Championship. (Okay…so it rained a little earlier in the week…there’s not a cloud in the sky today, and none are expected tomorrow. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for Saturday and Sunday…!)

Who are you pulling for this week at Quail Hollow? We’d love to hear from you!

Celebrating Earth Day!


Today marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. And Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson is in one of the most beautiful places on Earth today – Sea Island, Georgia – where he’s filming a commercial, which is scheduled to air beginning this June. While this isn’t necessarily a “green” activity, all of the gorgeous greens at Sea Island do make us wonder…what are YOU doing to celebrate Earth Day?

Another interesting bit of information: This week is National Volunteer Week. And speaking of volunteering, The McGladrey Classic is a mere 165 days away. We’re looking for volunteers for this October 4 – 10 event, so if you know of anyone who wants help out this fall, have them visit http://www.mcgladreyclassic.com/volunteers/volunteers_overview.aspx.

Verizon Heritage and Tax Day - Who's going to win?

It’s tax day and, while we’re HUGE golf fans, we also employ a lot of accountants and today is a BIG day here at RSM McGladrey!

But…another good thing about today is that Team McGladrey Members Chris DiMarco and Zach Johnson and McGladrey Classic host Davis Love III are all in beautiful Hilton Head, South Carolina playing in the Verizon Heritage (April 12-18). We’re following the tournament closely, and pulling for “our guys.”

Who do you want to win – and why?

The McGladrey Classic on Golf Central

This week’s beautiful weather here in the Carolinas has us thinking about golf and, more specifically, about The McGladrey Classic. The recent kick-off event in Sea Island has us more excited than ever about this new PGA TOUR Fall Series event.

We thought you might enjoy watching this brief McGladrey Classic Golf Central clip, featuring PGA TOUR Professionals Davis Love III and Zach Johnson (who is also a member of Team McGladrey). The clip also features the world’s fastest painter Rock Demarco with what commentator Rick Lerner calls his “Freddie Krueger paintbrush fingers” unveiling The McGladrey Classic logo at Sea Island. In his comments, Zach Johnson says that “giving back, helping people is really why McGladrey is on board.” We couldn't have said it better ourselves.

Take a look, and let us know what you think…

What can you do in 10 minutes? The McGladrey Classic kick-off event created a masterpiece!



The March 29 McGladrey Classic kick-off event marked the official beginning of this new PGA TOUR Fall Series Event, which is scheduled for Oct. 4 – 10 at Sea Island.

Having Davis Love III, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson, PGA TOUR’s Rick George, RSM McGladrey President and COO C.E. Andrews and local dignitaries participate in the event make it extra special, and we thank Zach for his guest post to our blog earlier this week. Zach did a great job capturing the excitement of the event.

We recently uploaded a video of the world’s fastest painter Rock Demarco unveiling The McGladrey Classic logo during the event. Demarco is quite a talent! What do you think – ever seen anything quite like this?
