CHICAGO – (November 20, 2022) – RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, and title sponsor of The RSM Classic – is excited to congratulate Adam Svensson on winning the 13th annual tournament at Sea Island!
Svensson, who was tied with four other players with just a few holes to play, birdied Nos. 16 and 17 to take a two-shot lead to the final tee. The 28-year-old Canadian held on to finish 19-under par and secure his first-ever PGA Tour title after 70 starts.
“It’s not even real right now. I just put so much work in,” said Svensson, admitting that he had not looked at a scoreboard to see how he was doing until he got to No. 16.
“This year’s RSM Classic has been spectacular,” said Brian Becker, managing partner & CEO with RSM US LLP. “As usual, we’ve seen some incredible golf, but the tournament is about so much more. The RSM Classic is the ‘ultimate client experience,’ and provides an opportunity to connect with clients and friends in a relaxed and beautiful setting. It also gives us an opportunity to amplify our focus on our core value of stewardship by raising millions each year to support the communities where our people live and work. I’m excited to congratulate Adam Svensson on his win, and to welcome him to the RSM ‘family’ as our newest RSM Classic champion!”
Svensson joins the growing list of previous RSM Classic winners, inculding Team RSM Member Chris Kirk.
“RSM has a rich 97-year history, and The RSM Classic has become a key component of that history,” said Doug Opheim, chief financial officer with RSM US LLP and chair of the RSM US Foundation. A couple of this week’s highlights include Wednesday’s charity putting challenge and Thursday’s announcement of the more than $6.7 million raised for children and families through the Power of Love program. This brings the grand total raised for children and families in need through the tournament since it began in 2010 to nearly $35 million. We are honored to be able to support those in need through The RSM Classic.”
Proceeds from this year’s RSM Classic will benefit national and local charitable organizations aligned with the RSM US Foundation’s mission of building tomorrow’s middle market business leaders by supporting organizations committed to providing stable environments for youth in the areas of education, hunger, housing and health.
“This year’s RSM Classic provided us with another great opportunity to connect with clients and potential clients in meaningful ways while enjoying some terrific golf,” said Andy Bosman, chief marketing officer with RSM US LLP. “It’s always fun to build relationships while supporting the community through the event each year. We’re looking forward to continuing this annual Seaside tradition next year.”
