NEWS RELEASE

CHICAGO,

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, an official PGA TOUR event hosted by the Davis Love Foundation – is pleased to congratulate Davis Thompson on winning the Jones Cup and an invitation to the 2020 RSM Classic.

First contested in 2001, The Jones Cup is a 54-hole individual stroke-play event hosted by Sea Island and played at Ocean Forest Golf Club. The Jones Cup brings together many of the finest amateurs from the United States and abroad for this three-day competition which is considered one of the top 30 men’s amateur tournaments in the world. Thompson, a junior at the University of Georgia, shot a 13-under through three rounds at Ocean Forest Golf Club to claim the 2020 Jones Cup Invitational title on Feb. 2. He finished at the top after shooting an impressive seven-under on the final day, nine strokes ahead of runner-up David Perkins, who finished at four-under.

“We are fortunate each year to have some of the top young players on the PGA Tour in our field, and the Jones Cup winner each year adds to our field with one of the world’s top amateurs,” said Andy Bosman, chief marketing officer with RSM US LLP. “RSM’s stewardship commitment involves building tomorrow’s leaders—and this includes featuring an amateur in the RSM Classic field each year. Davis received his first PGA TOUR sponsor exemption to The RSM Classic last year where he finished T23 at -10.”

The 2019 RSM Classic raised more than $4.6 million for children- and family-focused charitable organizations, bringing the grand total raised for those in need through the tournament since it began in 2010 to more than $17.6 million.

“The RSM Classic provides us with a unique opportunity to further our core value of stewardship, and to give back to the more than 80 communities where our people live and work in North America,” said Bosman. “Our employees, clients, friends, Team RSM and the PGA TOUR share our focus on building the middle market leaders of tomorrow and supporting children and families in need. We are humbled to be a part of this event, and honored to welcome Davis [Thompson] to the tournament and to our extended RSM Classic ‘family.’”
