Defending champion: Bryson DeChambeau, 23 under par.
OPINION:Bryson DeChambeau owes much more to the Rocket Mortgage Classic – and Detroit – than silence
Notable start times: The tournament lost a bit of star power when Bryson DeChambeau failed to make the cut and Hideki Matsuyama pulled out after testing positive for COVID-19. Still, there are some interesting pairings when golfers tee off from 7:35 a.m.:
7:35 am: Phil Mickelson – The PGA Championship winner just barely made it to Round 1 thanks to a 3-under 69. He’s the first off the tee this morning and plays alone.
8 a.m .: Willie Mack III, Byeong Hun An – Mack, a Flint product playing on the sponsor’s exception, finished round 1 with 4 under par and then shot a 1-over 73, all on Friday after rain delayed his round on Thursday and got him three hours of sleep .
8:20 a.m .: Patrick Reed, Curtis Thompson – In 9th place, Reed is the top-ranked golfer still in the field.
10:35 am: Rickie Fowler, Si Woo Kim – Fowler, the walking Puma billboard, is looking for his first PGA Tour win since February 2019.
11:20 am: Ryan Brehm, Chesson Hadley – Brehm was an eminent man in the state of Michigan; now he’s only four shots away from the lead.
12:45 p.m .: Matthew Wolff, Sungjae Im – Wolff finished second in last year’s tournament; he is three strokes away from the lead at halftime.
2:05 p.m .: Joaquin Niemann, Tom Lewis – The co-leaders tee off last, hoping to build on their 10 under par 134 in the first two rounds.
