  • The Rocket Mortgage Classic T-Shirts will be released Thursday (July 1) at the Detroit Golf Club in Detroit, Michigan.
  • Sungjae Im is ranked fourth in terms of the number of punches received from the tee field and the fifth in terms of the number of punches received in the last 50 rounds in this field.
  • Below you will find an analysis of the event and our favorite sleeping and long bets.

It’s been a long time since the PGA Tour had a good old bird party, but that’s about to change this week. The tour heads to the Detroit Golf Club in Detroit, Michigan starting Thursday (July 1), which was one of the easiest courses on the schedule in its short two-year existence.

The event yielded win points of -25 and -23 and there is no reason to believe it won’t take another extremely low score to walk away with the trophy on Sunday. Bryson DeShambeau dominated the competition last year, leading both offside shots and on his way to victory, and those two categories will heavily factor into our betting decisions this week.

Sungjae Im excelled in both of these key categories and is the first target on our sleeper and long-range betting chart.

Sungjae is striking in purity

I am ranked fourth among the world’s golfers in this field, but checked with 11th shortest chance… These are valuable spells right here, and it also doesn’t hurt that his game turns the corner. After a difficult situation where he missed three cuts in four starts, They managed to recoup after spending several weeks in a row with excellent ball play.

He scored 2.2 kicks in the very tough US Open and had 3.6 kicks in the Palmetto Championship prior to that. He is the fourth in the field for hits from targets and fifth for hits in the last 50 rounds, and is used to competing for titles at bird festivals. In 2018, he became the Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year, winning twice and finishing runner-up three times, all on a senior to 20 scoring course.

Choice: Sungjae Im for Victory (+3300)

Crazy Max

Our next target is Max Homa, whose price has changed a lot since the odds were first published. Homa opened with +7500 to win, and while it can still be found at +6600 in some online bookmakers, it costs only +5000 in others. The two-time Tour winner has been up and down the last few starts, but when he was at the top, he flirted with the top of the leaderboard.

He has been in the top 10 of his last nine tournaments three times and is statistically one of the most balanced players in the field. He is ranked first in Par-5 points, 10th in shooting goals up to 15 feet, 19th in shots and 34th in field shots in the last 50 rounds.

Homa has finished T10 or better in seven of the last eight tournaments where he has hit at least 3.7 shots, and if the flat-stick cooperates this week, he might just walk away with his third career trophy.

Choice: Max Homa – victory (+6600), getting into the top 10 (+400)

Top 20 price offers

  1. Sepp Straka (+335): The Austrian finished 8th and 11th in two career starts in this tournament and just finished 10th in the Travelers. He scored 6.2 hits last week at the TPC River Highlands and another 2.3 hits on grass. If he reproduces this performance this week, the other top 20 result will be well within his range of results.
  2. Cameron Champ (+500): Champ hasn’t been in a ton of great shape lately, but now he’s returning to where he had success in the past. He finished here in T12 in 2020 and has hit targets in 25 of his last 26 starts. He averaged 5.7 shots from the target and more on grass last year at the event, and he is certainly capable of yet another high-end bombing and squeeze strategy. Of the 36 career cuts he made on the Tour, 12 have resulted in him making the top 20 or better.
