It’s all change for the PGA Tour this week with a new tournament and a new golf course being added to the tour schedule. This will be the first time that the Donald Ross designed Detroit Golf Club has hosted a professional tournament. The new event is the Rocket Mortgage Classic the same sponsors of the Quicken Loans National who are a Detroit based company and were looking to bring a tournament to the city.

Located on the North side of Detroit, near Palmer Park and the University of Detroit Mercy, the course shares a border with 7 Mile on the North and started life as a 6-hole course designed by Bert Way then grow to a 9-hole and in 1913 additional property was purchased.

Donald Ross was asked to survey the property and he determined that two courses of 18 holes could be built on the land and in 1916 Albert Kahn was commissioned to design a new clubhouse, which was completed in 1918. Course architect Tom Doak has been brought in to oversee a renovation project of the two courses and re-establish the original Donald Ross design and bunkering.

The tournament will be primarily over the North course apart from the 3rd hole which is the only one of the South course holes being used and has a green that slopes dramatically from back to front. Like most Ross courses strategy is key with bunkers perfectly placed in the landing areas, with the greens being small, raised and heavily contoured.





My tips to Win:

I am sure Dustin Johnson 13/2 – with MarathonBet – will be disappointed in his performance at the US Open after having two runner-up finishes at this year’s other major championships and a Top 5 at The Players. Dustin’s only win so far came at the WGC Mexico Championship and I am sure the world number two will want to win before the last major of the year at Royal Portrush.

Another player that will feel disappointed that he didn’t challenge at the US Open will be Rickie Fowler 12/1 – with SportingBet – who also has a win a runner-up and three other Top 10 finishes on the wraparound tour. None of the players have played on this course in tournament conditions before so it will be a learning curve for all of them but I expect Rickie to be in the shake-up come Sunday afternoon.

It’s been two years since Hideki Matsuyama 14/1 – with Ladbrokes – won three events on the 16/17 season on the PGA Tour and while he has challenged he hasn’t managed to get a tournament over the line. Hedeki’s best finish this year has been a third place at the Farmers Insurance Open earlier in the year, but a sixth place a couple of weeks ago at the Memorial Tournament showed the he could about to start challenging again.

Each-way tips:

I did tip Ryan Moore 33/1 – with BetFred – at last week’s Travelers Championship, but a third round 72 see him slide out of contention, but I do feel that he is playing some good golf and with the confidence that brings and on a new course that the guys haven’t played before I think he will be challenging this week.

Some may think it’s a little too early to be tipping Viktor Hovland 50/1 – with Ladbrokes – but with this being a new course to all the players this week I think this is a great chance for Victor. It normally takes a while for amateurs to settle down to professional life but after making his first cut at last week’s Travelers Championship, I am sure he will be looking forward to this week and on an even playing ground

Outside tip:

It’s certainly been a rollercoaster season for Kyoung-Hoon Lee 90/1 – with BetFair – who has eight missed cuts and five Top 25 from his twenty-four starts on the wraparound season, but apart from a missed cut at the US Open Kyoung-Hoon’s game has settled down and with a thirteenth-place finish at the Travelers Championship he will be in confident mood this week.

Longer odds:

Try Brian Stuard 150/1 – with – SportingBet



As always good luck
