Almost summer already?!

We've had several busy weeks here at McGladrey and Team McGladrey has been just as busy and there is no sign of a slow down for any of us! Its mind-blowing that it is already mid June, but that means it is almost officially summer (though it's felt like it for weeks!) and one of the most anticipated weeks in golf...U.S. Open week!

Team McGladrey's Zach Johnson is gearing up for this year's second major championship at Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, CA. The championship officially gets underway today and Zach tees off at 7:33 a.m. PST with Camilo Villegas and Luke Donald. He will play with the same group on Friday at 1:03 p.m. PST. Judging by Zach's tweets over the last few days, the course is playing very fast and having a great short game is going to be paramount with the small greens that Pebble Beach possesses. We'll be rooting for Zach as he looks to win his second tournament of the year and the second major of his career. What a great Father's Day gift that would be!

Natalie Gulbis is in Galloway, NJ this week for the ShopRite LPGA Classic. The ladies are playing at the Dolce Seaview Resort on the Bay Course. The tournament returns to the resort for the first time since 2006. This week's tournament sees Paula Creamer return after having successful surgery to repair a thumb injury and the professional debut of 15 year old Alexis Thompson. It will be an exciting week for the LPGA and we wish Natalie and all of the other competitors the best of luck!

Finally, with Father's Day being this Sunday, all of us at McGladrey want to take the time to wish all of the dad's, grandfathers and fatherly role models out there all the best as you celebrate. If you are looking for a last minute gift for that special guy in your life, head on over to http://www.mcgladreyclassic.com/ and pick up some tickets to The McGladrey Classic!
