Birdies Fore Love
Birdies Fore Love
The RSM Birdies Fore Love program is a giving platform tied to The RSM Classic, focused on supporting organizations that help build the middle market leaders of tomorrow. It’s two primary components include RSM employee giving through the Power of Love, and the RSM Birdies Fore Love on-course competition in collaboration with the PGA TOUR.
Power of Love – RSM employee giving
Each year, RSM owners and employees volunteer in their communities and raise funds for local charities aligned with the missions of the RSM US Foundation and the Davis Love Foundation. In 2022, the program raised more than $6.7 million for more than 85 charities in the communities where RSM employees live and work.
The strong engagement of RSM employees and owners, coupled with matching contributions from the RSM US Foundation and proceeds from the tournament, has brought the program total to over $30 million donated over the 13 years of the tournament.
Birdies Fore Love – PGA TOUR on-course competition
In collaboration with the PGA TOUR, RSM will continue to support charitable organizations through an on-course competition over the seven events in the 2023 FedExCup fall.
In addition to weekly winners, the top player who accumulates the most birdies (or better) throughout those events will earn $300,000 for children- or family-focused charitable organizations of the player’s choice.
Last year, Taylor Montgomery (155 birdies or better) won the overall program, followed by Patrick Rodgers (154) and Will Gordon (151). Montgomery chose to spread the love and donate his winnings to Shriners Hospitals for Children, Tunnels to Towers, Our Military Kids, UNLV Foundation golf program, and Diamante First Tee Foundation. Rodgers supported Mia’s Miracles and the Indianapolis Junior Golf Foundation. And Gordon supported Turner’s Heroes and Access to Success.
