PGA DFS Rocket Mortgage Classic DFS Picks

The Course

 

July 2-5, 2020
 
Detroit Golf Club- Detroit, MI
 
 
 
 

Previous Winner:

 

2019 – Nate Lashley -25 (This was the first year of the tournament.)


Hole 1:

Par 4: 381 Yards

 
0% Eagles
26% Birdies
65% Par
9% Bogey
1% 2+ Bogey
 
AVERAGE SCORE: 3.847

Hole 2:

*Accuracy off the tee is critical on the second hole, with out-of-bounds, bunkers and trees lining the fairway. Players will be left with a mid-to-short iron into the green depending on club selection off the tee, with many players opting to not hit driver.

Par 4: 457 Yards

0% Eagle

16% Birdie

66% Par

17% Bogey

1% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.033


Hole 3:

*The third hole is the only one on the South Course that will be used for tournament play. Players will need to avoid having too much spin on their approach shots into the green, which slopes dramatically from back to front. Any player finding themselves putting from above the hole will need to be careful should they wish to avoid the dreaded three-putt.

Par 4: 398 Yards

0% Eagle

27% Birdie

65% Par

8% Bogey

0% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 3.816


Hole 4:

*The longest hole on the course, the par 5 fourth will test big hitters should they attempt to reach this green in two. Players that opt to lay up will need to have an accurate approach shot to this contoured green should they wish to walk away with a birdie.

Par 5: 616 Yards

0% Eagle

31% Birdie

63% Par

6% Bogey

0% 2+ Bogie

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.743


Hole 5:

*The tee shot on the uphill par 3 fifth plays slightly longer than the yardage to a blind green. Any back pin location has the potential to produce difficult putting conditions with a spine running across the back area of the green.

Par 3: 139 Yards

0% Eagle

23% Birdie

68% Par

8% Bogey

1% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 2.856


Hole 6:

*Accuracy off the tee on the sixth is at a premium. To have a clear approach to a two-tiered green, players will need to hit their tee shots down the left-side of the fairway while avoiding the fairway bunker. Any player that makes a birdie here will likely be picking up a stroke on the field.

Par 4: 480 Yards

0% Eagle

12% Birdie

69% Par

18% Bogey

1% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.093


Hole 7:

*Another tight driving hole. Accuracy off the tee on the seventh is at a premium for players trying to reach this par 5 in two. Players that don’t find the fairway will have to negotiate a challenging layup.

Par 5: 542 Yards

0% Eagle

48% Birdie

46% Par

6% Bogey

0% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.549


Hole 8:

*On the shortest par 4 on the course, club selection off the tee will be important as players look to avoid fairway bunkers and out-of-bounds. A two-tiered green also features a significant drop-off on its left-side, posing an interesting challenge.

Par 4: 381 Yards

0% Eagle

21% Birdie

66% Par

13% Bogey

0% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 3.923


Hole 9:

*The ninth is a long, beautiful and slightly downhill par 3 that plays about half a club shorter than the yardage. With multiple tee complexes stretching the hole between 175 to 207 yards, players will be faced with a challenging tee shot into a difficult and undulating green closely guarded by out-of-bounds. A birdie here will be a bonus.

Par 3: 214 Yards

0% Eagle

16% Birdie

67% Par

15% Bogey

2% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE:  3.038


Hole 10:

*An opportunity to get off to a quick start on the back nine. A solid tee shot on the dogleg left 10th leaves players with a short iron approach to the green. Birdies should be plentiful.

Par 4: 428 Yards

0% Eagle

25% Birdie

62% Par

12% Bogey

1% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 3.889


Hole 11:

*The 11th is the longest par 3 at Detroit Golf Club and features a large tee complex that allows the hole to be played anywhere from 180 to 233 yards long. Players will need to manage a green that looks deceptively simple from the tee, but which has a front bowl as well as several potential challenging hole locations.

Par 3: 220 Yards

0% Eagle

8% Birdie

69% Par

22% Bogey

1% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 3.157


Hole 12:

*Par is a great score on the long and difficult par 4 12th. Players managing to find the fairway will be left with a mid-iron into an elevated green which features a false front, causing any approach shot that comes-up short to roll off the green and down a steep slope.

Par 4: 465 Yards

0% Eagle

15% Birdie

69% Par

14% Bogey

1% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.007


Hole 13:

*The dogleg par 4 13th requires a precise tee shot. Many players will opt for a fairway wood or long iron off the tee to set up a short iron into the elevated green. Spectators should see lots of birdies on this hole.

Par 4: 397 Yards

0% Eagle

22% Birdie

65% Par

13% Bogey

0% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 3.916


Hole 14:

Par 5: 553 Yards

0% Eagle

42% Birdie

50% Par

9% Bogey

0% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.655


Hole 15:

*A classic Donald Ross designed par 3 that plays longer than the posted yardage. The 15th features large bunkers protecting the front, left and right sides of the green.

Par 3: 154 Yards

0% Eagle

17% Birdie

70% Par

12% Bogey

1% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 2.969


Hole 16:

*Players will need to place their tee shots on the 16th short of the fairway bunkers that guard the landing area, leaving them with a mid-iron approach to the green. Many will face challenging birdie putts on what is one of the more underrated putting surfaces at Detroit Golf Club.

Par 4: 454 Yards

0% Eagle

13% Birdie

74% Par

12% Bogey

0% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.000


Hole 17:

*Fans can expect to see excitement on the reachable par 5 17th. Players will favor the right side of the fairway off the tee to set themselves up for a clean look at the green. A generous opening into the green will allow many to chase their second shots onto the putting surface. Coming down the stretch on Sunday, an eagle here could decide the tournament.

Par 5: 568 Yards

0% Eagle

48% Birdie

47% Par

4% Bogey

0% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.509


Hole 18:

*A great par 4 finishing hole. The 18th features a shallow ditch running the entire length that will dictate strategy from tee to green. With a fairway bunker and a large Sycamore tree on the left and bunkers on the right, a tee shot in the fairway will be critical, leaving just a short iron into the green. Once on the green, players will be faced with possibly the most difficult putting surface on the course. A par here very well may be all that is needed to win on Sunday.

Par 4: 474 Yards

0% Eagle

14% Birdie

64% Par

20% Bogey

2% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.113

*All information used for each hole is brought to you by pgatour.com

So these are just some of the plays that we like. Our CheatSheet has a TON of useful information to look at!

 

REMEMBER: These are lineups we use, but feel free to pick and choose plays and make your own lineups. Don’t ALWAYS follow these as they don’t hit 100% of the time. We do use these but sometimes late scratches happen and it’s too late to update the lineup. Good luck and bring home the bacon.
