Course History at Detroit Golf Club | Claim $200 at BetMGM

Typically three years of history at a course gives us an indication of what it takes to be successful at that course, but there hasn’t been much consistency at all from the Tour pros. Kevin Kisner, J.J. Spaun and Troy Merritt are the only three in the field to have made the cut in all three appearances here. As well, only Kisner & Merritt have multiple top-10s at the event. Only two additional golfers are added to the list when looking for golfers finishing in the top 20, as Kisner and Merritt are joined by Sepp Straka and Cameron Tringale. A few others of note that have made the cut in both of their appearances over the last three years at the Rocket Mortgage Classic are Brandon Hagy, Chris Kirk, Mackenzie Hughes, Henrik Norlander, Max Homa, Patrick Rodgers and Nick Taylor.
