Earlier this week, the Ryder Cup did a Q&A with Davis, captain of the 2016 US Ryder Cup team. In this interview, they chatted about forming the team, the U.S. Open, the Olympics and more. They even touched on fellow Team RSM member Zach Johnson’s recent play. Here’s an excerpt on Davis talking about Zach’s play at Oakmont in the recent U.S. Open:
“When I heard about the rough and strategy it would take at Oakmont -- playing smart -- I figured it played right into Zach's hands. You gotta be the bomber guy who hits it a mile and can gouge it out of that rough, or you've got to be the tactician and that's Zach.
Zach's last two tournaments were at Colonial and Oakmont -- two very different courses -- and he played really well at both places. He makes up on strokes gained with the wedges and putter all the time. He's not short, but he's not going to overpower a course. He will outthink it though.”

This week, the golf action is coming from Bethesda, MD for the Quicken Loans National. Team RSM member Davis Love III is playing in this tournament and joined by previous RSM Classic winners Ben Crane (2011), Chris Kirk (2013) and Robert Streb (2014). Chris started off at 10:03 a.m. ET from tee No. 1; shortly behind him was Ben at 10:27 a.m. from tee No. 1; teeing off at the same time but from tee No. 10 was Davis; and from tee No. 1, Robert tees off at 2:48 p.m. Best of luck to all “our guys” this week!
