It has been a heck of a start to the return of golf. Loaded field after loaded field. Well, this week things change a bit. The PGA Tour heads to Detroit for the 2nd edition of the Rocket Mortgage classic and we have a field that much more resembles a Korn Ferry Tour event than a PGA Tour event. Regardless of the strength of the field, we should still see some great golf. It will be a birdie fest and whoever gets the hottest putter should walk away as the winner. Let’s see who the guys like at with the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic PGA OAD Picks.
|Last WK $||$34,410||$58,935||$17,316||$233,470||$139,983|
|Last WK PK||Rahm||Reed||Spieth||Bryson||Viktor|
|This WK PK||Reed||Wolff||Hatton||Hideki||Scheffler|
Kevin (@KevinsDelight) – Patrick Reed
Welcome to the Motor City! A decent field albeit not as great as the last few weeks. Another made cut with Rahm last week but once again a shitty weekend. Kuchar and Rahm were great plays the last few weeks but lackluster weekends have me looking for a much needed W….Captain America to the rescue! Pat Reed is my pick to help me Rocket up the leaderboard this week.
Jesse (@DFSGolfGods) – Hideki Matsuyama
I finally got a decent finish last week, but still, no wins. Need about 75 in a row here to make a run. This week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic will take place in Detroit. I am going to continue to fire some of the bigger names, especially in this considerably weaker field. Hideki Matsuyama is the pick. If you have Bryson he will be popular, but he will also win soon. Hideki plays courses of this length pretty well and if he can make some putts should be in the mix on Sunday. Best of luck!
Ruvy (@MichaelRuvolo) – Matthew Wolff
Well, I’m going full crazy this week. Need to make up some ground. I’m going with a flyer. Matthew Wolff. He won last year in Minnesota and Michigan seems like a similar environment. Big fairways where driving isn’t a premium will allow Wolff to unleash. He will get some birdies and hopefully can avoid the big numbers. This is definitely a flyer but Wolff only win on tour was at 125-1 and he is there again this week.
Rob (@AllDayEvery365) – Tyrell Hatton
Spieth got us to the weekend and didn’t really add any juice, but money is money and we move on to the Rocket Mortgage. This week, we go with a guy who quietly continues to be a big performer in Tyrell Hatton. His third-place finish at the RBC Heritage was impressive considering he was the only person that finished within four strokes of Webb Simpson that had a round in the 70s. Hatton continues to have an outstanding iron play and can make birdies in a hurry, gaining birdies on average in his last three starts and avoiding bogeys in that same stretch.
Bubba (@bdentrek) – Scott Scheffler
A nice week from Hovland was much needed and hopefully, I can ride that momentum into another nice finish this week. I will be going to a birdie making machine who is coming off a missed cut last week at the Travelers. I will be going with Scott Scheffler who had a 21st and 14th place finish before the missed cut, not too mention has done very well in weaker field birdie fests.
