The Rocket Mortgage Classic tournament set for Thursday-Sunday at Detroit Golf Club will feature six of the top-30 players in the world golf rankings, led by Patrick Cantlay at No. 4.

Cantlay is the reigning FedEx Cup champion and PGA Tour player of the year. He has seven career Tour wins and had four wins in 2020-21, the most in a single year of his career. He has seven second-place finishes in his career among 41 top-10 finishes.

Finau has represented the U.S. on its past two Ryder Cup teams, and picked up the comeback win at the 3M Open in Blaine, Minnesota, on Sunday, for his third win on Tour.

Will Zalatoris reads the 17th green during the final round of the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club, July 4, 2021.

The second-highest ranked player in the field, Zalatoris was runner-up at both the PGA Championship and U.S. Open this season. He's still searching for his first Tour victory, and has four second-place finishes and 16 top-10s in his career. Last year in Detroit, Zalatoris finished last among the 77 players to make the cut at even-par 288, shooting 6-over on the weekend.

Nate Lashley and Cam Davis, Rocket Mortgage Classic winners in 2019 and 2021 respectively, are both in the field this year, as is Rocket Mortgage-sponsored Rickie Fowler. 2020 tournament winner Bryson DeChambeau is off the Tour after joining the new rival league, LIV Golf.

Last week, the tournament announced commitments from Homa, No. 72 Webb Simpson, No. 129 Cameron Champ and U.S. Ryder Cup captain and major winner Zach Johnson. The field features 11 of the top-50 players in the world, up by one after a late sponsor's exemption for No. 39 Joohyung Kim, and 11 former major champions, including Adam Scott, Jason Day, Davis Love III, Stewart Cink, Gary Woodland and Keegan Bradley.

Justin Rose and Brandt Snedeker are among a handful of players who dropped out of the field.

The field's final five spots were claimed this week. Wyatt Worthington II won the The John Shippen National Invitational at Detroit Golf Club on Sunday, and four Monday qualifiers from The Orchards in Washington Township joined him: Luke Guthrie, Chris Naegel, KK Limbhasut and Erik Flores.

Detroit's forecast for Thursday shows early rain showers in the morning with mostly cloudy conditions later in the day. There will be a high of 84 with westward winds up to 15 mph. Conditions are expected to improve Friday and Saturday with sunny skies and under 10 mph winds. Sunday's final round could feature 15 mph winds once again with partly cloudy skies.

Tournament ticket prices range Thursday-Sunday from $70-90 for fans, depending on the desired date. Parking passes cost $25 daily, are not included with tickets and must be purchased online beforehand.

Tickets and parking are free for Detroiters on Tuesday (Youth Golf Clinic and Area 313 Celebrity Scramble) and Wednesday (Pro-Am).
