Rocket Mortgage Classic
Which useful trend or statistic stuck out most during your research?
Notorious: We only have one year of data to work with when it comes to the Detroit Golf Club. However, in last year’s edition we had a weak field and it still produced a winning score of 25-under par. Fairways were easy to hit, greens were easy to hit, and the scrambling percentage was higher than the PGA Tour average. Driving distance was at 296 on average, which is well above tour average. Even though the course officials said they are growing the rough up, I expect this to be a birdie-fest. I’m looking for strong ball strikers that can gain strokes both off the tee and with their irons. If you are looking for comp courses, Sedgefield and East Lake are the two other Donald Ross designs currently in rotation on the PGA Tour.
STLCardinals84: Birdies should be the name of the game at Detroit Golf Club. Despite a weak field in 2019, the cut line for this tournament came in at FIVE under par, which was the lowest cut line of the 2019-2020 season. The rough has been grown out by an extra half an inch this year to try to make the course a little more challenging, but we should still expect plenty of birdies on this par 72 layout. The greens play as a mix of poa and bentgrass, so upgrade those that are comfortable playing on poa. Hello, Brandt Snedeker. Also, be sure to monitor the news for withdrawals prior to the tournament start time, with positive COVID tests now pouring in at a high rate.
