- 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic Odds: +4,000
38-year-old veteran Kevin Kisner has not missed a single trip to Detroit since the tournament’s inception in 2019. Furthermore, he’s made the cut in all three trips whilst also finishing in solo third place in 2020 and tied for eighth last year. With five top-10 finishes and a solid T21 showing at The Open Championship, Kisner is one of the more attractive sleepers from this week’s field.
- 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic Odds: +5,000
From one Kevin to another we go, as Kisner’s fellow PGA TOUR stalwart Kevin Streelman makes his own case as the next Rocket Mortgage Classic winner. Although the 43-year-old Illinois native only has one start at the DGC, he had a decent T35 finish in the tournament’s inaugural run in 2019. What’s more encouraging is Streelman’s current form after having recently finished as the solo runner-up at the Barbasol Championship two weeks ago. With an ample amount of rest and momentum, Streelman could very well win his first PGA TOUR event since 2014.
- 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic Odds: +6,000
Continuing the trend of relative old-timers in the PGA TOUR scene due for a victory is Chris Kirk, who’s been one of the more consistent golfers all season long. Kirk has a total of four top-10s and seven top-15 finishes in the current campaign, with no bigger outing than his T5 finish at the PGA Championship in May for his career-best showing at a major. The 37-year-old out of Georgia has also made the cut in each of the six tourneys he’s played in since his stellar performance at Southern Hills, including another strong T7 finish at the RBC Canadian Open in early June.
