2020 PGA Rocket Mortgage Classic Purse and Prize Money Breakdown

2020 PGA Rocket Mortgage Classic Purse and Prize Money Breakdown

The next PGA Tour event is happening this week in Motown, as the Detroit Golf Club is set to host just the second staging of the Rocket Mortgage Classic. This will be the fifth tournament since the season restarted following postponement due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic is posing to be a more wide-open race than most other tournaments on schedule, as it will not be seeing any of the top five golfers on the planet teeing off.  

While that’s no good news for fans of Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, and Brooks Koepka, that’s something worth celebrating for fans of Webb Simpson, Bryson DeChambeau, and Patrick Reed, who are among the favorites with the big cats away. Not having the five of the world’s best golfers in Detroit should make that over $7 million in total prize money even more tantalizing.

The Total Payout – $7.5 million

Last year, Nate Lashley won the inaugural Rocket Mortgage Classic, and for that, he went home with a signed check worth $1.314 million, taken from the total pot of $7.3 million. This year, the Rocket Mortgage Classic has boosted the prize by adding $200,000 more. That means the winner of the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic will be expecting $1.35 million in his bank account. Not bad for a few days of work at the golf course, right? Speaking of Lashley, he’ll be trying to defend his Rocket Mortgage Classic title this week, though, he’s a long shot at betting odds of +12500 to win again. The current favorite is Bryson DeChambeau (+650), while Webb Simpson and Tyrrell Hatton have the next shortest odds with +1100 and +1400, respectively.
