Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson Wins the Crowne!

All of us here at McGladrey were THRILLED this past weekend when Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson won the Crowne Plaza Invitational and took home the coveted plaid jacket! It was a great way to top off a holiday weekend, and to talk about when we returned to the office on Tuesday. Even before the big win, though, Zach and his caddie Damon Green were featured in a nice article in Golf Digest. It’s not your typical sports article. This one focuses on the bond between the two, and highlights their mutual respect for Damon’s father, who passed away just a few days before the tournament. It’s definitely worth the read. (Hint: You might want to have a few tissues handy.) Speaking of dads, if you’re lucky enough to still have yours around, why don’t you “show him some love” for Father’s Day. For just $99, you can get a Seaside Tournament package for two for The McGladrey Classic (Oct. 15-21). If you order by June 12, you’ll receive free delivery in time for Father’s Day. And now, we’re bringing it back around to Zach…The PGA TOUR and AVIS are sponsoring a “Player of the Month” contest and, if you’re a golf fan, you can now vote for the winner for the month of May. In addition to our very own Zach Johnson, others in the running are Jason Dufner, Rickie Fowler and Matt Kuchar. The winner will receive $50,000 for the charity of his choice. Cast your vote today to help those in need! Check back next week for more updates…
