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.

And taking a look at last week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational, Team RSM member Chris Kirk finished with a -7 at over the weekend! See below for how other members of Team RSM did as well.
