Rocket Mortgage Classic plans longer rough for 2020 but fine with birdies galore

Eventual winner Nate Lashley tees off on the first hole during the final round of last June's Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club.

DETROIT — At the inaugural Rocket Mortgage Classic, there were 1,895 birdies, 40 eagles and a winning score of 25 under par.

Jason Langwell, the executive director of the PGA Tour's first-ever Detroit stop, would be just fine if those numbers repeated themselves, despite some chirping on social media that Detroit Golf Club proved far too easy for the best golfers on the planet.
