…we will officially be The RSM Classic! That’s right, we’re officially changing the name of our tournament to The RSM Classic, to align with our firm’s new name. We’re looking forward to another exciting tournament, and are continuing to add more great names to our 2015 Player Field. We’ve added a second course this year, which will provide even more beautiful views for players and fans, and our headline entertainer will be Martina McBride Sat., Nov. 21. One thing that won’t change: the tournament’s focus on giving back to the community, including the lively and highly rated charity putting event on Wed., Nov. 18. And these are just a few of the activities that will be happening tournament week (Nov. 16 through Nov. 22) at Sea Island. We hope you’ll join us for the sixth annual tournament, and the first one as The RSM Classic!
Our tournament name isn’t the only thing changing. Every four years the Rules of Golf are revised to keep up with the different changes and advancements in the game. Stay ahead and learn about the most significant changes in the 2016 edition of the Rules. Another change, last month, the PGA TOUR updated its prohibited items list. If you're attending this year's tournament, make sure you review the list in advance so you'll have 'smooth sailing' when entering the grounds.
#DidYouKnow - All youth 17 and under are admitted FREE to the tournament grounds (but not the concert grounds) when accompanied by a paid adult, Wed., Nov. 18 through Sun., Nov. 22.
Another positive change: The tournament continues to grow in size and stature. With that, our need for volunteers grows, as well. Interested in volunteering? Sign up here. We’d love to see you on the island!
Before closing, we’d like to make sure our readers are aware of a recent interview with RSM US Chief Finance Officer Doug Opheim and Chris DiMarco on The Golf Channel’s Morning Drive, where they talked about Chris’ “Norma DiMarco Tee Up For Life” charity event and the support RSM provides. You can watch the interview here.
Check back next week to learn what’s happening with the tournament and for additional details about its name change.
