The PGA Heads to Detroit for the Rocket Mortgage Classic at the Detroit Golf Club in Michigan. This will be the second year of this event, and Nate Lashley will be looking to defend his title after winning the event last year on 25 Under Par.
Last Week at the Travelers Championship we saw Dustin Johnson play some fantastic golf and manage to win the tournament by one stroke on 19 Under Par. He did have a little trouble in the latter stages of the final round, but still managed to hold on and win the event.
Check out some of the Highlights from the Travelers Championship below.
Here is a quick preview and picks for the upcoming Rocket Mortgage Classic.

DeChambeau is in some fantastic form at the moment, and his putter is getting the job done. He didn’t hit the ball as well as previous weeks during the Travelers Championship, but still finished in a tie for 6th at 15 Under Par. One of the shortest-priced favourites in recent times for a PGA Tour Event and rightly so, this course is a little longer than some of the courses during previous weeks, and the 26-year-old is currently compressing the golf ball and smashing it off the tee. Jump on the DeChambeau train!
Current Odds – $34
Kevin NA does a great job at organising a game plan and strategy and knows which golf course he has a decent shot at playing well in.
Finished 5th last week on 16 Under Par and is one of the more consistent putters on the PGA Tour. Previous stats from the tournament last year would suggest that the majority of the top 10 finishers putted well during the tournament. This event will be won on the greens, and Na will fancy himself for this one.
Current Odds – $67
The best player off the tee last week with 91.1% Driving Accuracy, Todd is hitting the ball well at the moment, which is always a good thing leading up to a tournament. He finished 11th at the Travelers Championship and if he gets his putter going may be a chance at the back end of the event.
Current Odds – $126
The best putter from last week, Ryan Armour comes into this event after finishing in a tie for 6th at the Travelers Championship. He finished with an impressive closing round of 64 and will bring in some red hot form to the next PGA Tour Event. Armour struck the ball well last week and if he’s putter stays hot he will be on the Leaderboard on Sunday.
