This week, Draftkings golf fans will be presented with the 2024 Rocket Mortgage Classic. Let’s take a look at this week’s event from a DFS perspective.

Before I dive into my DFS player selections for this tournament let’s review the golf course the field will play and the key player statistics that I think are the most vital to a golfer’s success at this week’s 2024 Rocket Mortgage Classic.

Where will the 2024 Rocket Mortgage Classic be played?

The 2024 Rocket Mortgage Classic will be played at the Detroit Golf Club in Detroit, Michigan. The golf course is a par 72 that measures approximately 7,370 yards.

The Detroit Golf Club has hosted the Rocket Mortgage Classic since the tournament’s debut on the PGA Tour schedule in 2019.

Rickie Fowler won the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic with a cumulative four round score of 24 under par.

Will the Rocket Mortgage Classic have a traditional cut after two rounds?

The Rocket Mortgage Classic will have a field of 156 players to start the tournament on Thursday. Upon the completion of two rounds, a cut will occur. The top 65 golfers (including ties) will make the cut.

Rocket Mortgage Classic Key Player Statistics

  • Strokes Gained: Tee to Green
  • Strokes Gained: Approach
  • GIR (greens in regulation)
  • Strokes Gained: Putting
  • Strokes Gained: Par Fours
  • Birdie of Better Percentage

I wanted to emphasize that the purpose of this article is not to provide an exact DFS lineup.

Having stated that, this article will provide multiple player options in an effort to assist the reader in generating a unique lineup that will hopefully have the potential to win a DraftKings GPP (guaranteed prize pool) contest!

2024 Rocket Mortgage Classic Draftkings DFS Picks

Tom Kim $11,000

Tom Kim arrives at this week’s PGA Tour event in rather good form. More specifically, Tom Kim has accumulated two top four finishes in his last four tournaments played on the PGA Tour, including an impressive second-place result at last week’s 2024 Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Connecticut.

In relation to this week’s current listed 2024 Rocket Mortgage Classic field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Tom Kim ranks 13th in driving accuracy, sixth in strokes gained tee to green, and second in birdie or better percentage.

Taylor Pendrith $9,600

Similar to Tom Kim, Taylor Pendrith is currently in great form. Two weeks ago, Taylor Pendrith fired a third round 70 at the 2024 U.S. Open en route to an eventual 16th place finish. I fully expect Pendrith’s quality play to continue in Detroit this week.

Davis Thompson $8,300

Davis Thompson has accumulated three top 27 finishes in his last four tournaments played on the PGA Tour, including a ninth-place result at the 2024 U.S. Open two weeks ago.

Additionally, Davis Thompson has posted a quality result at the Detroit Golf Club in the past. Thompson finished 24th at the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic.

Matt Wallace $7,400

The talented Englishman has accumulated three top 20 finishes in his last five events (DP World and PGA Tours combined), including a fourth-place result at the 2024 CJ Cup Byron Nelson last month.

In relation to this week’s 2024 Rocket Mortgage Classic field, in the last eight rounds played on the PGA Tour, Matt Wallace ranks 12th in strokes gained tee to green, 19th in driving accuracy, 11th in strokes gained approach, and 17th in strokes gained on par threes.

In my opinion, Matt Wallace presents the best fantasy value of any golfer in this week’s tournament field at the affordable Draftkings price of only $7,400.

Additional golfers I like to perform well this week (Draftkings price noted): Rickie Fowler $9,000: Stephan Jaeger $9,400: Aaron Rai $8,800: Doug Ghim $6,900: Kevin Tway $6,000.
