An Ace and A Cake


Last week was a fantastic week of golf at The Masters! One of our favorite moments came from our very own Team RSM member Davis Love III when he made a hole-in-one on No. 16 Sunday! It was a phenomenal shot – if you missed it, be sure to check out the video here.

And on a somewhat related note, #DidYouKnow that Olympic gold medalists from the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro are invited to all the majors in 2017? The men’s winner will receive invitations to The Masters, U.S. Open, Open Championship and the PGA Championship, while the women’s winner will be invited to all five of the LPGA majors. Learn more in this article on PGA TOUR.   

This week, we have a bit of a “Team RSM and friends” reunion in Hilton Head, SC for the RBC Heritage. Davis and fellow Team RSM member Zach Johnson are joined by past RSM Classic winners Ben Crane (2011), Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey (2012), Chris Kirk (2013), Robert Streb (2014) and Kevin Kisner (2015). Below is a breakdown of when and where they’ll be teeing off today (Thurs., April 14):

Based on the past champions for RBC Heritage, we’d say this is one of Davis’ favorite courses! He won in 1987, 1991, 1992, 1998 and 2003! We’ll be tuning in to The Golf Channel and will have lots of cheering to do this weekend. Who are YOU predicting to win?
 
 St. Simons Island, GA – home of The RSM Classic – is vying this week for USA Today’s ‘Best Coastal Small Town 2016’ award! If you have a few minutes, check out the complete list of nominees and vote for your favorite! We might be a bit biased but, we know who we’re voting for!
Before wrapping up this week’s post, we want to wish a very happy birthday to Davis Love III, who celebrated his special day yesterday (April 13). Leave your wishes below in the comment section and we’ll be sure to pass them along to Davis. Like most of us, he always appreciates good birthday wishes.  

Be sure to stop by next week to learn the latest on Team RSM and other fun golf-related news – including, of course, any updates on this year’s RSM Classic (Nov. 14-20). It’s still about seven months away, but we’re already gearing up for another successful tournament!
