McGladrey Congratulates Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson

Johnson prevails in three-man playoff

NEWS RELEASE

CHICAGO,

STATEMENT FROM MCGLADREY CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER ANDY BOSMAN:

On behalf of McGladrey’s more than 8,000 employees in 80 cities nationwide and RSM International’s employees worldwide, I would like to congratulate Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson on his win of the 2015 Open Championship!

Zach prevailed in a three-man playoff to win the tournament, claiming his second career major by squeezing out a par on the final hole of the playoff at No. 18.

Johnson rolled in a 30-foot birdie putt at the 72nd hole for a 6-under 66 that put him at 15-under through regulation. When Johnson’s final putt dropped in the cup, his knees buckled and he pumped his right fist. His caddie, Damon Green, did his infamous chicken dance to celebrate.

Zach demonstrates daily the values of the game of golf: respect, integrity, teamwork, excellence and stewardship – values which are shared by McGladrey. We are thrilled to have Zach as a member of Team McGladrey.

McGladrey LLP – the nation’s leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – signed Zach Johnson to an endorsement deal in 2007. Additional Team McGladrey Members include PGA TOUR Professionals Chris DiMarco and Davis Love III, host of The McGladrey Classic, a PGA TOUR event sponsored by McGladrey.

Zach, a resident of Sea Island, GA, has played in The McGladrey Classic since the tournament’s inception in 2010. To date, The McGladrey Classic has raised donated more than $2.7 million to local and national charitable organizations focused on enhancing the lives of children and families.
