Spring Swings


We’re kicking off the first few days of spring with a busy week for Team RSM and golf fans. The USGA announced this week that Davis Love III will make his U.S. Senior Open debut this year! Several publications featured the news, including Golf Week. See an excerpt from the piece here:

"There's no doubt Davis Love III still has game. As recently as 2015, the 21-time PGA Tour winner and World Golf Hall of Famer earned the title at the Wyndham Championship, becoming the third-oldest golfer ever to win a PGA Tour event.

Love, who has returned to action since a November hip-replacement surgery, will make his debut at a senior major, the USGA announced on Monday, with Love accepting a spot into the 2018 U.S. Senior Open at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo. Love turns 54 on the Friday after this year's Masters, but has remained a mainstay on the regular tour playing 61 PGA Tour events since turning 50, compared to just nine PGA Tour Champions tournaments.”

The U.S. Senior Open will take place June 28 through July 1. We’re looking forward to cheering Davis on! 

Over on the course, there are two tournaments underway, and several members of our Team RSM “family” are joining in on the fun!

First, we have the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play taking place at the Austin Country Club in Austin, Texas. Team RSM Member Zach Johnson and past RSM Classic winner Kevin Kisner (2015) are both playing.

Honoring Arnold Palmer’s Legacy


The Arnold Palmer Invitational is underway at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando.

To honor Palmer’s legacy, as “golf’s greatest ambassador,” the PGA TOUR announced an hour-long special entitled “PGA TOUR 2018: Mr. Palmer’s Legacy presented by Mastercard”, which can be viewed on the TOUR website here.

“Considered to be golf's greatest ambassador, Arnold Palmer owns a legacy which to this day is felt by so many throughout the world. In this 60-minute NBC special, we explore Mr. Palmer's greatest attributes which led to his profound impact on the game, and how it's still seen through players and tournaments on the PGA TOUR.”

The Arnold Palmer Invitational also compiled a piece about the “Top 18 Moments” of the tournament, which includes Arnold’s '71 Florida Citrus Open victory and the name change of the tournament in his honor.  To read more about the history of Orlando's Signature Event, please see the full article here.

Team RSM Members Davis Love IIIZach Johnson and Chris Kirk are all playing, as well as past RSM Classic winners Austin Cook (2017), Mac Hughes (2016), Kevin Kisner (2015) and Robert Streb (2014). Below are their tee times for Thurs., March 15:
