This Week in Golf

It’s a relatively quiet week for Team RSM, as none of our players are participating in the Farmers Insurance Open. A few of our extended “RSM family” members are playing, though: previous RSM Classic winners Ben Crane (2011) and Robert Streb (2014). We’ll be cheering them on!

This week, the PGA Show is taking place in Orlando. There were some unique items displayed, and some that might be pretty cool if they catch on. One example: the GolfBoard – a skate board that carries your golf bag AND a mini cooler. What more can you ask for when out on the course? Check out the PGA TOUR article talking about the latest gadgets.

And, it’s never too early to mark your calendars – make note that the 2016 RSM Classic is taking place Nov. 14-20. If you’re unable to join us in person at beautiful Sea Island, be sure to tune in to the Golf Channel to watch the action live Thursday through Sunday of that week.  

Check back next week to find out the latest news and updates on Team RSM and related activities!

Aloha from Team RSM!

There’s a “Team RSM Family” reunion of sorts going on at the Sony Open in Hawaii this week, where Team RSM Members Zach Johnson and Davis Love III are joined by previous RSM Classic champions Ben Crane (2011), Chris Kirk (2013) and Kevin Kisner (2015). Chris has an early start at 7:30 a.m. local time from tee No. 10; teeing off at 12:30 p.m. Kevin and Davis are teamed up at tee No. 1; and Zach is right behind them on the same tee at 12:40 p.m. Best of luck to our group of winners!  

The PGA TOUR recently shared its top five picks for shot of the week, and making the list is a familiar face: Davis sank a 93-footer last week at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Check out the video here -

The TOUR also featured Zach in its Top 30 Players to Watch in 2016. Cracking the top 10, the article takes a look back at 2015 and at Zach’s upcoming year. Read the article here.

So… 2016 is already shaping up to be an exciting year for Team RSM. And we’re looking forward to seeing what else the new year will bring! We’ll keep you posted right here. Check back next week to learn the latest on Team RSM and 2016 RSM Classic (Nov. 14-20 at beautiful Sea Island).

Teeing Up 2016

Happy New Year to our readers! We hope you had a wonderful and relaxing holiday, and that you’re ready for an exciting 2016! It’s already shaping up to be an exciting year on our end, and your friends here at RSM US LLP look forward to sharing it all with you! So, let’s get started…

Did you know 2016 marks the 30th PGA TOUR season for Team RSM Member Davis Love III? And what a 30th anniversary year it will be with Davis serving as the 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup captain this fall! Check out the TOUR’s recent article, “Love’s got more to give” about Davis and his career. It’s a great read!   

Team RSM Member Zach Johnson had some exciting news earlier this week with the announcement that he signed with PXG equipment for 2016. Joining Zach in the signing is 2013 RSM Classic winner Chris Kirk. We’re looking forward to seeing their new clubs in action this week at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Honolulu, where they’ll be joined by Davis and by 2015 RSM Classic Winner Kevin Kisner, making it somewhat like an RSM “reunion” of sorts. Davis tees off at 10:50 a.m. local time, Chris at 11:20 a.m., Kevin at noon and Zach at 12:30 p.m. Best of luck to our guys this weekend!
