Webb Simpson, Patrick Reed and Bryson DeChambeau headline 2nd edition of PGA Tour’s return to Michigan
No. 6 Webb Simpson, who won the RBC Heritage two weeks ago, is the highest-ranked player in the field, according to the Official World Golf Ranking. He will be joined by fellow Americans No. 7 Patrick Reed and No. 10 Bryson DeChambeau. Play begins Thursday in the Tour’s fourth event on the revised schedule since the season restart after a three-month suspension because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Southeast Michigan hosted the PGA Tour from 1958 to 2009, when Tiger Woods won the final Buick Open at Warwick Hills in Grand Blanc.
DeChambeau is the only player to have posted top-10 results in each tournament since the season restart. In fact, he brings a streak of six consecutive top-10s into his debut in the Motor City.
American Nate Lashley, who claimed his lone PGA Tour victory last year in Detroit after being the last player to gain entry to the field, is the defending champion.
