Congratulations, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson!


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.

This week’s Seaside Course picture is of hole 11 which is a par 4 playing 425 yards. It has averaged 3.96 strokes and yielded 233 birdies and 1 eagle in the first 3 years. This is a heavily bunkered, straightaway par 4. Three large bunkers and dunes line the right side of the fairway and a large, deep bunker is on the left. The fronting bunkers near the green on both sides give the illusion of a shorter approach shot. However, an overly aggressive shot may find the marsh behind the green.

Check back next week for more updates on Team McGladrey and The McGladrey Classic… it’s only 45 days away now…!
