You’ve got the moves like… Zach Johnson’s caddie!


After an exciting week topped off with a thrilling playoff,  McGladrey sends a BIG congratulations to Adam Scott for winning the 2013 Masters! Scott is the first Australian to win the coveted green jacket, making his country proud.

The 2013 Masters was full of both the serious and the funny, which led to spirited discussions on and off the course. If you missed it, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson’s caddie broke out into a  “Bird-Man Dance” after Zach birdied No. 11 this past Saturday. We wonder if this will be the next “Tebowing” epidemic for the golf world. We would LOVE for you to share your “bird-man” moves with us!

Also this past Friday, there was a lot of discussion around Tiger Wood’s ball drop on the 15th hole. In a quick recap, Woods’ third shot hit the flagstick and rolled back off the green and into the water. He decided to return to the original spot of play and drop “as near as possible,” from where he played his third shot. The question that came into play was whether Woods dropped the ball as close to the original spot as he could have.  This stirred up a lot of discussion as to whether he should be disqualified from the tournament. In the end, Woods was penalized two strokes and remained in the competition.  What are your thoughts? Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson shared his in this Des Moines Register article.

 Following the Masters, it sure seemed as if Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III had a great time at MAM2013 (Monday After Masters). Davis tweeted this picture which included Dan Marino, Darius Rucker and others. Quite an impressive crew, huh?

The 45th RBC Heritage tournament begins today (Thurs., April 18) at the Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island. Zach is in group No. 5. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to make the trip to Hilton Head, but we WILL  be pulling for Zach from afar! Looking ahead to next week, Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco will be in New Orleans for the Zurich Classic (April 25-28). Go, Chris!

We are now officially less than 200 days from the 2013 McGladrey Classic (Nov. 4-10). We know these next 199 days are going to fly by.
