A look back...


2016 has nearly come and gone, and we, like many others, are reflecting on the year that’s nearly over. As we look back, we’re reminded of the many exciting and rewarding moments from Team RSM and the seventh annual RSM Classic. Here are Just a few:
  • Team RSM Member Davis Love III served as the 2016 Ryder Cup Captain for Team USA, with Team RSM Member Zach Johnson as a member of the team. The cherry on top: Team USA brought the trophy back to the U.S.
  • We added Andy Sullivan and Paul Lawrie to Team RSM due to their relationships with RSM UK.
  • We thanked the Sea Island community and Sea Island Golf Course employees who worked together tirelessly after Hurricane Matthews to restore the island – and the golf courses – to their former beauty, by donating  $10,000 to restoration efforts.  
  • More than 1,200 volunteers donated their time and talent to help make The RSM Classic a success by welcoming to PGA TOUR players, RSM guests and golf fans from around the world to beautiful Sea Island.
  • We welcomed Mackenzie Hughes to the RSM family, as the newest tournament champion, joining previous winners Kevin Kisner, Robert Streb, Chris Kirk, Tommy Gainey, Ben Crane and Heath Slocum. 
  • Through RSM’s Birdies Fore Love program and a match from the RSM US Foundation, RSM professionals, clients and friends raised $1.5 million for deserving children- and family-focused charitable organizations.
  • Our firm celebrated RSM’s 90th anniversary through an employee contest, which provided nine employees with $90,000 and nine paid days off to “pursue their passions”. Not surprisingly, all nine of the winning employees chose activities that allowed them to give back to the community, reflecting the same sense of stewardship that is at the core of the game of golf and The RSM Classic.   

The PGA TOUR is also pausing to remember some of the highlights from 2016, and recently shared three of their “Top 10” videos. You can check them out here:
