Celebrating Good Times!

 
While some view the number 13 as unlucky, here at McGladrey, we think it’s a pretty  lucky number. Not only is it just two short days before the end of busy season for accountants, but April 13 is Team McGladrey Member and The McGladrey Classic Host Davis Love III’s birthday. We hope you had a wonderful day with family and friends, Davis – and that you have many more to come!

Last week’s Masters Tournament was a bit of a nail-biter. Those of us here at McGladrey would like to send a big CONGRATS to Jordan Spieth on his first major win last weekend (and he’s only 21 years old)! We’d also like to give a big thumbs up to Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson, who tied for ninth at the prestigious tournament! Great job, Zach! Your friends at McGladrey are very proud of you!  
 
This week, Zach is on the East Coast for the RBC Heritage tournament, which takes place in Hilton Head, SC. While the weather forecast for Hilton Head (and the entire East Coast, actually) is a bit “iffy” for the next several days, the company will be great. Zach is joined on the course by several familiar faces, including McGladrey Classic winners Ben Crane (2011), Chris Kirk (2013) and Robert Streb (2014). This is the first time since 2007 that Zach has played in this tournament. And based on the PGA TOUR’s power rankings, it just might be his year, as he’s ranked No. 1! Zach had an early tee time this morning at 8:10 a.m., ET, from tee  No. 10; Chris tees off at 12:20 p.m., from tee No. 1; and Robert and Ben are paired together teeing off at 12:30 p.m., from tee No. 1. Best of luck to all of “our guys” this weekend! Stay dry!
 
And if you’re looking for some good entertainment between rounds, check out this PGA TOUR video of ‘Good, Bad, and Unusual.’ Early on in the video, you’ll see an adorable little boy whose face lit up with a huge grin, after Davis gave him one of his golf balls from the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Shortly after (from the same tournament),  a great shot (and a little bit of luck from a slight  bounce) leads to Zach carding an albatross – exciting stuff! Watch it here.  
 
 
Check back next week for more updates on Team McGladrey and the 2015 McGladrey Classic. It’s not even summer yet, but November will be here before we know it! We’re already looking forward to heading back to Sea Island…
