More to “Love” About Team RSM


It’s been an exciting week for Team RSM! On June 15, RSM announced that the firm has added Davis Love IV (Dru), Team RSM Member Davis Love III’s son, to Team RSM through calendar year 2018. Dru played on the University of Alabama golf team, and recently turned pro as he received word he qualified for his first U.S. Open as an alternate from the Georgia sectional qualifier. Dru made his second start in a PGA TOUR-sanctioned event, after playing in the 2015 RSM Classic (and official PGA TOUR FedEx Cup event) at Sea Island.

Dru is the third generation from his family to play the U.S. Open. Equally as exciting was having his father and host of The RSM Classic Davis Love III, make his 24th appearance in the U.S. Open, only this time, he was caddying for his son.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of my father and grandfather as a professional PGA TOUR player,” said Dru. “I’m excited to join the RSM family. I’ve gotten to know the RSM team through their sponsorship of the RSM Classic and I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of Team RSM, joining my dad, Chris DiMarco, Zach Johnson, Paul Lawrie and Andy Sullivan. It’s a great team, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it!” Learn more here.
