Team McGladrey Keepin' it Real!

We’d like to start this week’s update by congratulating a couple of recent winners in the world of golf: Matt Bettencourt, the 11th first-time winner with a one-shot victory at the Reno-Tahoe Open, and South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen who took home the claret jug with his seven-shot win during the recent British Open. (The last time anyone other than Tiger Woods won a major by that large a margin, was in 1980 when Jack Nicklaus won the PGA Championship at Oak Hill – that was 30 years ago!)

Team McGladrey members have been “keeping it real” lately. Here’s a quick overview:

• Chris DiMarco had a strong finish at the Reno-Tahoe Open, where he tied for 10th. (We think his son Cristian, who served as his caddie last week, was a good luck charm!)
• Natalie Gulbis has been busy this week tweeting from (and of course, playing in) the Evian Masters in France. We’re pulling for you, Natalie!
• Davis Love III took a little family time this week, and spent some time paddle boarding with his daughter Lexie.
• And all of us here at McGladrey are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Zach Johnson’s second son, who’s scheduled to make his arrival into the world this week.

LOTS of exciting things going on!
