The PGA Tour now moves to the Motorcity and this will be the third time that the Donald Ross designed Detroit Golf Club has hosted a professional tournament. The Rocket Mortgage Classic came into the schedule two year's ago and are the same sponsors of the Quicken Loans National, who are a Detroit based company and were looking to bring a tournament to their home 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.

With a lot of bookies now moving to 1/5 of the odds for places, we will try to only show bookies who still offer 1/4 of the odds and bring you the best golf betting tips available for players price and place.

My tips to Win:

This weeks defending champion is Bryson DeChambeau 15/2 — with 10Bet — who I tipped last week after his disastrous finish at the US Open and while he may not be happy with his Top 20 finish at least it steadied the ship going into this week. DeChambeau will not only want to put up a good defence of his title but get back to being right in the thick of the battle come Sunday, something he hasn’t really done since the Players Championship back in April.

After winning The Masters I was surprised that Hideki Matsuyama 18/1 — with SportingBet — is teeing it up in this event instead of making his way over to Ireland to start his acclimatisation to links golf and while the Irish Open may not be on a links course he could have taken some time out to play a few links courses. Having said that Hideki does have two Top 25 finishes in this event and obviously feels he stands a better chance of being in contention here this week.

Although Webb Simpson 18/1 — with SportingBet — missed the cut at the US Open he did have a Top 10 in this event last year and has had nine Top 25 finishes this wraparound season from fifteen starts and that includes five Top 10 finishes. Simpson currently sits in thirteenth position on the Ryder Cup rankings and with US Ryder Cup team captain Steve Stricker having six picks, he will need a win and a couple of good finishes to force his way onto the team or into the captains thinking and so I expect him to be right in the heat of the battle here come Sunday.

Each-way tips:

A third place finish here last year and a Top 5 at the Travelers Championship at the weekend should see Kevin Kisner 35/1 — with SportNation — in confident mood when he arrives in Detroit this week. Kevin shot a final round 63 that see him storm up the leaderboard forty-places and into the Top 5 at the weekend after a retched few months that see him miss six cuts from his last nine starts. Kevin obviously found something on Sunday and will no doubt be raring to go again come Thursday.

It has certainly been a rollercoaster ride this wraparound season for Doc Redman 60/1 — with MansionBet — getting the season off to a flying start with two Top 5s from his first four starts, but one of those starts was a missed cut, which has featured heavily in his stats this year in fact eight of them to go alongside a runner-up finish and two other Top 20s. Doc had a runner-up finish in the inaugural event of this tournament and opened up with a 65 last year on the way to a Top 25 finish and with this seasons runner-up finish coming a couple of weeks ago, I think he will be in confident mood when he arrives here.

Outside tip:

After three consecutive missed cuts Sepp Straka 100/1 — with 10Bet — found something in his golf swing and opened and closed the Travelers Championship with a pair of 66s, but the reason behind this pick is because he has come into form at the perfect time having finished inside the Top 11 on both of his starts at the Detroit Golf Club. And that combination of growing confidence in his golf game and coming to a course that he obviously enjoys and suits his eye, these could turn out to be very good odds for a Top 5 finish.

Longer odds:

Try Henrik Norlander 200/1 — with SportingBet

As always good luck
