Weekly Golf Preview – Rocket Mortgage Classic | Estrella Damm Andalucia Masters

See below as we run through the tournament for you including facts, odds and picks from our own golfing professional Cliff Jackson and 32Red’s Jack Milner.


  • Detroit Golf Club, Michigan
  • First staged in 2019
  • Current champion – Not available

OVERVIEW: A brand new event on the schedule and is part of the new build up to The Open and is a qualifying event for the final major of the year.

It is a very strong event, despite being new, with Dustin Johnson favourite – but he has some big-name rivals in the shape of US Open winner Gary Woodland and the in-form Chaz Reavie.



  • Valderrama Golf Club, Sotogrande
  • First staged in 2010
  • Current champion is Sergio Garcia

OVERVIEW: Always a popular venue at Valderrama – it looks to have found its place in the calendar and as of this year has become an Open qualifier, the same as its American counterpart.

The question is can anyone but Sergio Garcia win on a course he knows and loves, having won three times in succession, but the likes of in-form English pair Matt Fitzpartick and Matt Wallace should push him hard.


The pro’s point of view…

Our resident golf expert is Cliff Jackson. Cliff is a leading youth coach and PGA professional at the famed Seaton Carew Links – one of the oldest courses in the world.

Both events this week qualifying spots as the battle for Portrush heats up.

The new event in American, we don’t know what to expect but the field is a very strong one. But without form you have to think that Chez Reavie will compete but I really like how Viktor Hovland is playing – the recent amateur is in top form and I think he wins sometime soon.

In Spain, and I think that Sergio will win – I really do, although I think that Ross Fisher is due for a good day.
