2019 Rocket Mortgage Classic Sleeper Picks

Rocket Mortgage Classic Sleeper PicksThe Rocket Mortgage Classic is a new event on the PGA Tour even though it is taking over for the Quicken Loans Tournament. This is the first time that the PGA Tour has ever held an event in the city of Detroit and played at the historic Detroit Golf Club this should be a nice staple tournament on the schedule for years to come.

Already a strong filed of golfers has committed to the tourney which is also an Open Championship qualifying event with two spots up for grabs.

If you are looking for sleeper picks for the Rocket Mortgage Classic this may be a bit of a harder tournament to handicap and make picks for since there is no course history to ride and most players will never have seen the Detroit Golf Club.

Rocket Mortgage Classic Golf Course

Detroit Golf Club par 72 – 7,294 yards

The Detroit Golf Club has been redesigned for the Rocket Mortgage Classic and at 7300 yards this course is a middle of the road type of course for golfers. There are some long holes like the Par 5 - 625 yard second hole that long hitters will find appealing but short hitters will be aiming for par and so for the Rocket Mortgage Classic look for sleepers that are longer hitters and focus a bit on driving accuracy stats. The setup won’t be punishing if guys miss the fairway but you’d rather be hitting off the fairway than out of the rough.

Par 5 scoring could be a big factor this week since some guys can take advantage of the longer holes and some won’t. Whoever leads the week in Par 5 scoring will probably be your winner of the Rocket Mortgage Classic in 2019.

The field will be similar to last week’s Travelers Championship with a handful of big name PGA Tour players trying out the new tournament and some will opt for next week’s new tournament instead with the 3M Open. The big names will be the favorites to win and the high priced players for your daily fantasy golf lineups so for sleepers I would recommend finding guys that the last few weeks have been making cuts and finishing in the top 30 consistently along with who sits high in the standings for the stats that we have mentioned.

2019 Rocket Mortgage Classic Sleeper Picks

Mackenzie Hughes - Last time we picked Hughes he finished in 14th at the RBC Canadian Open. Last week at the Travelers he finished in 51st. The Detroit Golf Club sets up similar to the RBC Hamilton course so we will take Hughes again at a soft salary cap price.
