Where is the Rocket Mortgage Classic?

Detroit Golf Club is the host of this week’s event on the PGA Tour – the Rocket Mortgage Classic!

 

For the first time in four weeks, the PGA Tour holds a ‘normal’ event, and it is the Rocket Mortgage Classic!

The Rocket Mortgage Classic is one of the youngest events on the PGA Tour schedule, with this being just the sixth edition of the competition.

The event dates back to just 2019, with Nate Lashley, Bryson DeChambeau, Cameron Davis, Tony Finau and most recently, Rickie Fowler (below), being victorious.

The Rocket Mortgage Classic made history with its inception, as it became the first ever PGA Tour event to be hosted within the city limits of Detroit.

It remains so to this day. The Detroit Golf Club will once again play host to the 2024 edition of the competition, a 36-hole venue in the state capital of Michigan.

Donald Ross was the man behind the design of both the North and South Courses at Detroit GC, and it is the South Course in which the tournament is played over.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
