Congratulations Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson!


This past week at the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge,  Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson rallied from four shots back with eight holes remaining for the victory, defeating Tiger Woods in a playoff.  Following a spectacular hole out from the drop zone on 18, Johnson emerged victorious with a par on the first hole of the playoff.  With this victory, Johnson moves to 9th overall on the Official World Golf Ranking, entering the top-10 for the first time in his career. Congratulations, Zach – we’re so proud to have you on Team McGladrey!

And what did Zach do as soon as he returned home to Sea Island (home of The McGladrey Classic) from his big win? He had a celebratory meal with his family at Southern Soul BBQ! Check out the Twitter picture he posted. That looks delicious!

Wrapping up the year for PGA TOUR tournaments is the Franklin Templeton Shootout in Naples, FL. Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco is paired up with Billy Horschel for the tournament. Their tee time was at 10:42am ET this morning (Dec. 12). The first tournament of 2014  will be the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. The PGA TOUR reported that Zach has committed to play. Not too shabby of a place to kick off 2014!

With the holidays right around the corner, you’re probably seeing lots of seasonal decorations. For those who live on or by Sea Island, if you haven’t had the chance to get a Christmas tree, make sure to stop by the Winter Wonderland, located by Taylor House Interiors! Proceeds benefit Blessings in a Backpack at Altama Elementary School! Hours are Mon – Fri from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., ET and Saturday from noon to 9 p.m., ET. You’ll get a fabulous tree while supporting a deserving local organization!  

Check back next week for more updates on Team McGladrey and the 2014 McGladrey Classic (Oct. 20-26, 2014).
