Talk about starting the new year off with a bang! Congratulations to Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson on his win at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions this past week in Kapalua, HI! Fun fact about this win is this is the start of Zach’s 11th PGA TOUR season and he just won for the 11th time! Check out the video the PGA TOUR posted of the top five shots of the week (week of Jan. 7). Zach’s final round, second hole, second shot was #1. Incredible job!
Jumping over an island, this week, Zach is in Honolulu, for the Sony Open in Hawaii. Does anyone feel back-to-back wins coming? Teeing off at 12:30pm, Zach is in group 30. Even though Zach is the only Team McGladrey member there, you may recognize a few extended members in the McGladrey family: Heath Slocum (2010 McGladrey Classic winner), Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey (2012 McGladrey Classic winner), and Chris Kirk (2013 McGladrey Classic winner). Best of luck to the boys! Who are you rooting for at the Sony Open?
Speaking of other Team McGladrey members, earlier this week, Chris DiMarco was at on the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive giving tips on playing in windy conditions and swing speed. If these interest you, check out some of the blog posts Mark Love, Executive Director of the Davis Love Foundation, shared on The McGladrey Classic website. He, too, discusses tips for playing in the wind.
To wrap this post up, we just want to say welcome back and happy new year! We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break and was able to take some time to relax with friends and family. Check back next week for more updates!
