Our Team RSM “family” is pretty familiar with the tournament! Sports Illustrated gave a nice shout out to THREE familiar faces below:

The Past Champions: Kevin Kisner won this event last year at 10-under, beating Sean O'Hair, Jon Rahm and hometown favorite Jordan Spieth by one shot. Spieth won it the year before, and in 2016 he finished second to Chris Kirk, so that's three top-2 finishes in three years for Spieth at Colonial. Zach Johnson is a two-time champion of the event (2010, 2012) as is Phil Mickelson (2000, 2008), though lefty isn't in the field this week. Adam Scott took home the trophy in 2014. Other notable winners throughout the tournament's rich history: Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Ben Hogan (five times), Ben Crenshaw (twice), Sam Snead, Lee Trevino (twice).

Now that’s impressive! Best of luck to our “guys” this week!
