The Rocket Mortgage Classic commences on Thursday, and it is only the fourth time it has been played as part of the PGA Tour schedule.
The competition is held at the Detroit Golf Club, a course which holds a long history, being established in 1899. This is the penultimate week for players to pick for FedEx Cup points in a bid to stay in the top 125.
Not only are there valuable points to claim, but an attractive pot of $8,400,000 to be shared. All season long, players are awarded FedEx Cup points based on their performance in official PGA Tour events, illustrating the importance of the event.
The FedEx Cup was first awarded in 2007, last year’s champion was Patrick Cantlay who is in attendance for the Rocket Mortgage classic.
Last year’s champion Cam Davis will return to defend his title. Previous winners of the event include Bryson DeChambeau and Nate Lashley.
The course is renowned for its low scores with past champions hitting as low as 23 and 25 under. This included Lashley hitting two 63s, resulting in him running away with the title in its maiden year.
In 2021, Davis had to go through a play-off after he was tied on 18 under with Troy Merritt and Joaquin Niemann.
