DETROIT, June 8, 2021 ~ Reigning Rocket Mortgage Classic champion Bryson DeChambeau visited Detroit Golf Club on Monday to participate in the annual event’s Media Day. DeChambeau’s visit was scheduled to promote the July event, though many were curious about his recently brewing rivalry with Brooks Koepka
“I think a good jesting rivalry is good for the game of golf, nothing too extreme,” he told reporters at Detroit Golf Club. “But at the same point and time that’s all outside of the spectrum of what we’re here for today, and I think the most important thing is to be talking about what Rocket Mortgage is doing for the 313 area and I think the change the course initiative is something that’s bigger than the game of golf, compared to a rivalry.”
This comes not long after several commitments were added to the tournament, including 2021 PGA Championship winner Phil Mickelson.
The Rocket Mortgage Classic will take place at Detroit Golf Club, July 1 through 4.
