We are officially just one week away from the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club and Detroiters are getting fired up for the annual event! The PGA Tour is back in Detroit for a third straight and it is poised for its best field yet. Max Homa, Zach Johnson, Will Zalatoris, and Patrick Cantlay are among the players already committed to the event. The field will be finalized Friday at 5 p.m. We could be in for a special last-second addition as well!
If you have not experienced The Classic yet, it is a MUST-do of the summer. Detroit Golf Club and Rocket Mortgage have a plethora of events going on the entire week of the event. The Wednesday Pro-AM is always a highlight of the week as local celebrities and athletes join in on the action and try to showcase their golf talents.
Additionally, the Area 313 Celebrity Scramble takes place after the Pro-Am on Wednesday and it really tests former legends from various sports. Detroit greats like Barry Sanders and Henrik Zetterberg are former participants of this fun event that all raises money for charities in Detroit. Honestly, you never know who you will run into wandering around Detroit Golf Club. That’s another part of the fun while enjoying days of beautiful golf.
The Lippin’ Putts Podcast will be down there all week long as credentialed media members as they continue to try and grow a golf brand in the great city of Detroit. Sam Palmer and I can’t wait to be a part of all the action that takes place next week. We will have a full preview of the event released next Wednesday! Come out and join in on all the fun that gives so much back to all the great charities in Detroit. If you see us, be sure to grab us, and let’s talk some golf!
