April Showers Brought May Flowers


Happy May! This brings us one month closer to The RSM Classic – there are only 193 days left until we are back in Sea Island, Georgia for this one-of-a-kind PGA TOUR event! We loved watching the 2018 SEC Men's Golf Championship at Sea Island Resort's beautiful Seaside Course earlier this week, and it made us even more excited for November. Fun fact, RSM Classic Tournament Director Todd Thompson’s son, Davis, is a freshman at The University of Georgia and participated in last week’s SEC Men’s Golf Championship!

This week in tournament news, we’re headed to Charlotte, where the forecast is calling for beautiful weather for this week’s Well’s Fargo Championship at the Quail Hollow Club!  Team RSM members Davis Love III and Dru Love are playing in Charlotte this year, and they’ll be joined by a number of past RSM Classic Winners, including Austin Cook (2017), Mac Hughes (2016), Kevin Kisner (2015) and Robert Streb (2014).

According to the PGA TOUR’s website: “This week’s event is the last chance for golfers to qualify for the TOUR’s signature event, THE PLAYERS Championship. For those not already qualified, there are two ways to get in: (1) win at Quail Hollow, or (2) move inside the top 10 in the FedExCup standings.”

Below are the tee times for our Team RSM “family” for Thurs., May 3. Best of luck to each of them this week!

In other golf news, the PGA of America is expected to relocate its headquarters. GolfDigest.com provided more information about the news in their recent article:

“Last August, while the PGA of America was revealing its plans to shift its oldest event, the PGA Championship, from August to May starting in 2019, leaders of the organization were deep in the planning stages of another move—one potentially far bigger in scope and impact.

In the coming weeks, the 100-year-old association is expected to announce that it is moving its national headquarters from its longtime home in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., to new environs, most likely in Texas, though the location still is in doubt. A Golf.com report last month indicated that the PGA was eyeing Frisco, Texas, near Dallas, but PGA of America spokesman Julius Mason told Golf Digest that a couple of bids are under consideration, including others in South Florida.”

It will be interesting to see what happens next!
