The PGA Tour heads to Detroit this week for the Rocket Mortgage Classic. We break down opening odds for a course that favors big hitters.

The PGA Tour heads to the Motor City this coming weekend for the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic. The event was originally scheduled for the week of May 28th, but was bumped back due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Golfers tee off at Detroit Golf Club this Thursday and Nate Lashley is the defending champion.

Bryson DeChambeau is a sizable favorite after a sixth place finish in last week’s Travelers Championship. He’s +600, with the next closest, Webb Simpson, at +1000. DeChambeau is playing solid golf since the season restarted, but the reason he’s a bigger favorite this week is because of the course. The Detroit Golf Club layout is built for heavy hitters and DeChambeau is a big bomber these days.

Lashley dominated the course last year, and even with a final round 70, won by six strokes. He put together 63s in the first and third rounds, and a second round 67 kept this one from being competitive on Sunday. This year, he’s +15000
