Million Dollar Shot


This week, Team RSM Member Davis Love III is in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for the CIMB Classic. Also playing are past RSM Classic winners Ben Crane (2011) and Robert Streb (2014). Davis started from tee No. 10 at 8:30 a.m.; not too far behind was Ben at 9:10 a.m. from tee No. 1; and Robert teed off at 10:00 a.m. from tee No. 10. Best of luck to these guys this week!
 
We are now one month away from teeing things up at beautiful Sea Island for the 2017 RSM Classic! Did you know that every year during tournament week, we dedicate the Saturday of play as Military Appreciation Day? The RSM Classic salutes the men and women who serve and who have served in our armed forces. Learn how The RSM Classic supports the military here.
 
In conjunction, we are excited to offer the Folds of Honor Million Dollar Challenge, presented by Bridgestone, to all fans attending The RSM Classic on Sat., Nov. 18, the opportunity to test their golf skills and possibly win $1 Million Dollars – all while raising funds for The Folds of Honor Foundation.  Participants will compete in a “Closest to the Pin” contest, with 13 finalists qualifying for a one-shot Challenge Round, immediately following the third round of The RSM Classic. The finalist who hits his/her shot closes- to-the pin will win a grand prize package; a hole-in-one is worth $1 million!
