February Festivities and Features!


Team RSM Member Zach Johnson has a birthday coming up Feb. 24!

To help celebrate his big day, we wanted to share his recent feature in Golf Digest. Below is an excerpt from the articleMy Shot: Zach Johnson”:

“I PLAY A LOT OF H-O-R-S-E in the driveway with my oldest son, Will. He just turned 11. Obviously I’m better than he is, so I let him stay close. I’ll miss on purpose so I’m at H-O-R-S and he’s only at H-O. I can see on his face he thinks he’s got a chance. Then something happens to me. This competitive thing inside me kicks in, and I blitz him. I just can’t let him win. Maybe it’s an Iowa thing, but we’re not “everybody gets a trophy” people. Will’s a strong kid. His day will come soon enough.

***

WHEN I WATCH SPORTS ON TV—and I watch a lot—I’m always drawn to the 20-point underdog who keeps it close. At the NCAA basketball tournament, when a small school hangs in there but doesn’t quite pull it out, that’s the team my eyes go to at the end of the game. The TV cameras always focus on the winners, but I’m looking at the losing sideline and thinking, Nice job, guys. I don’t like losing, but there’s beauty in what comes out of it. As a golfer, everything I learned that led to my winning 12 PGA Tour events, including a couple of majors, came from losing.”

You can find the full feature here. We hope you have a great birthday, Zach!

Speaking of features, Team RSM Member, Davis Love III,  recently sat down with Golfweek at the PGA Merchandise Show to discuss a variety of topics, including golf fashion and the involvement the captain has in what the Ryder Cup uniforms will look like.
