What an exciting week! First, on Mon., Sept. 16, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson had everyone on the edge of their seats. In the final round of the rain delayed 2013 BMW Championship, Zach Johnson, Jim Furyk, and Nick Watney were neck-and-neck, until Zach pulled through with the win! Zach shot a bogey-free 65 on Monday to rally from three shots back. This win was Zach’s 10th PGA TOUR victory, and it put him at No. 4 in the FedExCup point standings. If you’d like to send your congratulations to Zach, feel free to leave those here, and we’ll pass them along. (Our congratulations also go to Jim Furyk, who became the sixth PGA TOUR player to shoot 59 during the BMW Championship – joining Al Geiberger, Chip Beck, David Duval, Paul Goydos and Stuart Appleby in the history books. Well done, Jim!) This week, Zach Johnson is in Atlanta, GA for the TOUR Championship. Zach is in group 14 which tees off at 1:50 p.m. ET.

While we’re on the topic of volunteering, McGladrey has a long history of giving back to the communities where our employees live and work. (Insert hyperlink to the Community page of our website.) It’s in that spirit that we have made it a priority for our firm to support the Davis Love Foundation’s Birdies Fore Love (BFL) program. This program supports children- and family-based charities by allowing participants to pledge by either dollar amounts or per birdie at the McGladrey Classic. This year, thousands of McGladrey employees across the country will support the BFL program through a unified, coordinated effort led by employee volunteer Chris Parrish. Learn more about the Birdies Fore Love and how you can participate on The McGladrey Classic site.
Check back next week for more updates on Team McGladrey and The McGladrey Classic – now less than two months and counting...
