Tony Finau captured his third career win and his first of the season during a wild back nine where he flipped a five-shot deficit to a four-shot lead.
There was some typical Finau drama, but he was ultimately able to cruise home for a comfortable three-shot win. He’s set to keep it rolling this week at the Rocket Mortgage, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him change those plans to celebrate and rest before the playoffs start in a few weeks.
This week the TOUR heads back to Detroit where Cameron Davis got his first win last year in a three-way playoff. He will return to defend that title, this time in a field that looks stronger on paper as it includes four of the top 21 players in the World Golf Rankings.
I won’t be surprised at all to see a Cameron repeat this week as there are a couple of those I’ll be targeting early. It’ll be interesting to see where the odds fall on Young when they roll out on Monday because he has a game that should set up well at the Detroit Golf Club.
The rookie has been really close a number of times this year, often taking his game to the highest levels in the biggest fields. He has four top-3 finishes this season, including two at major championships with the most recent coming in St. Andrews at The Open. I am expecting him to have some of the shortest odds on the board this week, but it’s certainly merited for a player who has vaulted inside the top 20 in the world in a hurry.
Continuing the Cameron theme of the week, I’ll be hoping for a good number on Champ when odds drop on Monday morning. He struggled in the opening round at the 3M Open, but was able to find four birdies in his final five holes on Friday to make the cut on the number. He carried that momentum into the weekend and fired consecutive 67s on his way to a T16 finish. This is a course where we saw Bryson DeChambeau and Matthew Wolff battle it out with their length just two years ago and Champ certainly has the distance to match those players. I wouldn’t be surprised to see one of his patented peak weeks in Detroit and I’ll be firing on what I expect to be mid-range odds on Monday.
One thing we have found over the past three years at Detroit Golf Club is that many styles can compete. I noted the battle between DeChambeau and Wolff above, but in those same years Kisner was also posting top-10 finishes. In fact, he finished third behind those two in 2020.
Kisner seems to have found some form in the past couple of tournaments as he was T6 at the Travelers and finished just outside of the top 20 at The Open. He tends to be a streaky player and I’ll look to ride that form this week on a course that has fit his eye over the past two years. We know he has winning upside and if we can get longshot type odds for the Rocket Mortgage Classic, he’ll be an easy buy for me to start the week.
