A Memory of a LIfetime


Last week was one for the books for Team RSM Member Davis Love III. On Tues., Sept. 26, Davis was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. “Golf has improved my life in every way,” said Davis. “This induction is the greatest honor of my life.” If you missed his speech, you can watch the video below.

 
 
Kicking off the new season this week is the Safeway Open. Playing in Napa, CA is Team RSM Member Zach Johnson, along with past RSM Classic winners Ben Crane (2011), Chris Kirk (2013) and Mackenzie Hughes (2016). Mackenzie started his day at 7:40 a.m. PT; shortly after was Zach at 7:50 a.m.; right behind at 8:00 a.m. was Ben; and Chris tees off at 12:40 p.m. Each player will tee off hole No. 10. Best of luck to all “our guys”.
