In Honor of Arnie’s Army


This week, the golf community is showing its love and support for Arnold Palmer during the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Playing at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Team RSM Member Zach Johnson is joined by past RSM Classic winners Chris Kirk (2013), Kevin Kisner (2015) and Mackenzie Hughes (2016). From tee No. 10, Kevin teed off at 8:47 a.m. ET; shortly after at 8:59 a.m., Zach teed off from No. 1 and Mackenzie from No. 10; Chris will start from tee No. 1 at 1:20 p.m. Best of luck to all “our guys” this week.

In honor of Arnie, there have been numerous tributes to “The King”, including:

-          The PGA TOUR shared an incredible story about “The Man Who Inspired An Arnie,” which highlights Arnold’s life, including great stories and stunning photos throughout his career. We highly recommend you take the time to check out this piece.

-          Rickie Fowler will be playing in Arnold Palmer inspired golf shoes during the tournament and the PGA TOUR players are also wearing belt buckles featuring his iconic umbrella logo.

Arnold changed the game of golf, both on and off the course. Sharing stories from the course, the PGA TOUR has also released a few videos leading up to this week. Check them out:
