Team McGladrey working hard and playing hard

We’d like to start this week’s post by congratulating Bubba Watson for winning his first PGA TOUR event at the Traveler’s Championship last week. While every win is a great win, that first one is always extra special!

Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis tied for 25th at the LPGA Championship in Pittsford, NY last week. She’s been in Chicago this week – her first trip to the area since the Solheim Cup last August – where she was the featured guest for the 16th annual President’s Invitational golf outing.

Natalie and the rest of us here at McGladrey were happy to hear about Cristie Kerr nabbing the number one slot in the women’s world golf rankings this week, making her the first American to rise to the top world spot! In fact, we were told that Natalie was so excited that she treated Christie to a champagne bath.

This week, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson is still enjoying his much-needed break, but he’ll be playing in next week’s John Deere Classic at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill. He’s also scheduled to make an exciting announcement Mon., July 5 about a charitable initiative that will benefit his hometown of Cedar Rapids and the state of Iowa, so you’ll want to “keep an ear out” for that.

Fellow Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco will join Zach at the John Deere Classic, and we’re cooking up an announcement ourselves, so stay tuned for that, as well. (Psst…Here’s the inside scoop: You can expect to hear this one Tues., July 6.)
