How To Watch Rocket Mortgage Classic live stream 2023

Rickie Fowler birdied six of his last eight holes on Saturday to rise to the top of the Rocket Mortgage Classic leaderboard at 20 under. He is aiming to win his first Tour event since the 2019 Phoenix Open, 96 starts ago. Fowler, 34, has lead, either alone or jointly, 10 times on Tour going into the final round, but has converted these into only two victories. 

Adam Hadwin and Taylor Pendrith are in second and third, on 19- and 18-under. If either win they will become the fifth player from Canada to win this season on the PGA Tour.

Because of lighting, play was suspended for an hour and 42 minutes on Saturday and Sunday’s tee times have been moved forward in the hope of completing the final round before more forecasted bad weather arrives. Players will go out in threes and groups will be starting on both the 1st and 10th tees in an effort to get people round in time.

To make sure you miss none of the action, below are all the streaming and broadcast details on how to watch a Rocket Mortgage Classic live stream from wherever you are, as well as today's tee times.

The PGA Tour heads to Michigan for the fifth running of the the Rocket Mortgage Classic. No-one has won this event twice, something Tony Finau, Cam Davis and Nate Lashley were out to change this week.

Although several of the big names have stayed away from this year's Rocket Mortgage Classic, it still boasts eight of the top 30 in the world rankings in its field. Defending champion Tony Finau is joined by last week’s Travelers champion Keegan Bradley, as well as Max Homa, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, Sungjae Im, Tom Kim and Hideki Matsuyama.

The Rocket Mortgage Classic, which replaced the Quicken Loans National on the PGA Tour schedule four years ago, is held at Detroit Golf Club in Detroit, Michigan. The club has two 18-hole Donald Ross designs, the North and South. The tournament is played over a composite 18 holes with 17 from the North and one from the South.

Tony Finau shot 26 under last year to win by five strokes. In doing so, he broke Nate Lashley’s scoring record. Lashley had won the inaugural event by six shots, with a 25-under-par 263. In the intervening years the winner’s score had been 18- and 23-under.

So it is not rocket science, nor even Rocket Mortgage science, to calculate that this week’s winner needs to make plenty of birdies. With the greens fairly accessible, putting well may prove to be the key factor as to who scores low round this predominantly flat course – when Detroit Golf Club became a PGA Tour host in 2019, it replaced TPC Louisiana as the flattest course on tour. (Its elevation change from highest to lowest point is only 43ft.)

Make sure you know how to watch PGA Tour golf from anywhere including all the details on the Rocket Mortgage Classic live stream just below.
