Everything Old is New Again


 There was some exciting news in the world of golf earlier this week. The R&A announced that golf's oldest championship, “The Open,” will return to the home of golf at St. Andrews in 2021 for the 150th edition of the championship.  Golf Channel provided additional information about the tournament and gave a shout-out to Team RSM Member Zach Johnson! See an excerpt below: 

 “The tournament will be held July 15-18, 2021. It will mark the first Open at St. Andrews since 2015, when Zach Johnson defeated Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman in a playoff to win his second career major and first claret jug.


Past Open champions at St. Andrews include Bobby Jones (1927), Sam Snead (1946), Jack Nicklaus (1970, 1978), Seve Ballesteros (1984), Nick Faldo (1990) and Tiger Woods (2000, 2005).”
