2024 Rocket Mortgage Classic

Recommended Posts

Young, Bhatia, Pendrith, Fowler.

My four picks.

Weak field. Easy course. Gotta make birdies. Four par 5s. Gotta be long.

Hit my two top 10s last week (Finau Harman). Picked Kim and Bhatia to win. Scottie always making a thing of it.

Course isn't too easy for what it was designed for - hickories and old school balls.  Toasters on a stick will make classic courses look easy.  Anyway hoping for a good tournament.

@PGATOURSMartin
Miles Russell, 15, makes his PGA TOUR debut this week.

Supplanted Tiger as the AJGA’s youngest PoY and finished T20 in a Korn Ferry Tour event.

Impressive that he isn’t dominating his age because of an early growth spurt. He’s just really good.

One of my least favorite courses on tour.  Travelers-Rocket Mortgage-JDC is easily the worst stretch on tour.

 

Is it not at Detroit CC on their longer Ross course?  

 

IIRC the property is pretty flat and by professional standards of average (bordering short unfortunately) length.  7300ish par 72?

Canadian tour is in my city this week and I was excited to follow Neal Shipley this week. Welp. haha. Congrats to him on getting his first PGA start as a pro. 

 

(as an aside, the course they're at lost their 10th green so they are playing the tournament at 17 holes. Absolute clown show).

why wouldnt they just use a temp hole location was the entire 10th green lost due to a deep freeze?

where'd they lose it at? golf greens are pretty large, you'd imagine it wouldn't be too hard to find it laying around somewhere.

I'm not sure the exact specifics of it. The course is a Jack Nicklaus design called Northern Bear. I'm assuming it must be really bad to just not play the hole entirely. 17 holes is very amateur hour for sure.

some interesting notables at this years tournament include neal shipley (masters, us open low am) first pga tour event as a pro, wesley bryan, tom kim coming off a playoff hole loss, and cam young coming off a tournament with his career best 59, akshay bhatia friend of the bryan bros show,

I got a feeling Shipley being the bright guy he is will put it together at some point in the next 12 months on the tour for a win or two once he settles in. Guy can move it.

He's a weird case study. He's collegiate record isn't all that impressive. His best WAGR ranking is 17th. Nothing to eww and ahh over. On the flipside, he was high Am at two majors and took 2nd at the US Am. Perhaps he's the next Koepka and only truly dials in when the courses get tough?
