After resuming play just four weeks ago, the PGA Tour is heading to Detroit this weekend for the second edition of the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Once again there will be no fans in attendance which means there won't be any grandstands at the tournament but all four days of the event will be shown live and we have all the details on how you can watch the world's top golfers tee off at home.
The first Rocket Mortgage Classic was held last year and it replaced the Quicken Loans National on the PGA Tour. Despite being the last player to get into the field, Nathan Lashley ended up defeating Doc Redman by six strokes to win the tournament and earn his first PGA Tour victory finishing with a 25-under par. Will Lashley be able to play as well as he did last year and win the Rocket Mortgage Classic for the second year in a row?
While the field isn't quite as loaded as it was during the PGA Tour's first three weeks of play, a number of big names in golf will be in attendance including Bryson DeChambeau, Webb Simpson, Rickie Fowler, and Patrick Reed. Unfortunately, once again Tiger Woods has made the decision to sit this tournament out.
The Rocket Mortgage Classic will see 156 golfers play 18 holes at the Detroit Golf Club over four rounds with one round being played on each day of the tournament. Although the Detroit Golf Club features two 18-hole courses, the Rocket Mortgage Classic will be played on the North Course which is 7,334 yards in length with the longest hole being No. 4 at 635 yards and the shortest hole being No. 15 at 160 yards.
Whether you follow the PGA Tour closely or just want to tune in to watch some of the top players in golf play at the Detroit Golf Club this weekend, we'll show you how to watch the Rocket Mortgage Classic on TV or online from anywhere in the world.
