DETROIT, MI - The tournament field now boasts three of the four reigning major championship winners (2021 PGA Championship winner Phil Mickelson, 2021 Masters winner Matsuyama and 2020 U.S. Open winner Bryson DeChambeau).

Matsuyama joins a field that currently includes seven major championship winners accounting for 13 major titles, as well as nine players among the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking and eight players within the top 30 in the PGA TOUR’s 2020-21 FedExCup points standings. The tournament’s 156-player field will be confirmed as final on Friday, June 25. See below for field highlights and a complete listing on players currently in the field.

Matsuyama’s one-stroke victory in the 2021 Masters was not only his first major championship victory, but the first major win for any male Japanese player in golf history. The 29-year-old is a six-time winner on the PGA TOUR, owns eight international victories and has played on the International team in the last four Presidents Cups. In the four majors played so far during the 2020-21 season (with two delayed from last season due to Covid-19), he has finished tied for 23rd or better. He will play in the Rocket Mortgage Classic for the third straight year, having finished T13 in 2019 and T21 last year.

The Rocket Mortgage Classic is the only PGA TOUR event ever held in the city of Detroit and returns to Detroit Golf Club June 28-July 4. More information is available at www.RocketMortgageClassic.com
