Welcome to the Rocket Mortgage Classic 2022 final round updates from the PGA Tour stop in Michigan at the historic Detroit Golf Club.
After a big battle on Saturday, we’ll see the story on Sunday afternoon, but what genre is up for debate.
Tony Finau is looking for his second straight PGA Tour win after winning last week at the 3M Open in Minnesota. He drives the ball very well with 36 of 42 fairways hit and has hit 50 of 54 greens in regulation time, giving himself doable birdie looks almost every hole. He leads the estate in Strokes earned: tee-to-green and is seventh in putting. No wonder he’s been bogey-free all week.

His co-leader, Ontarian Taylor Pendrith, is looking for his first PGA Tour victory, although he has two wins on PGA Tour Canada. Both players are sitting at 21 under par 195 in three rounds.
• LIVE RANKING
The tournament scoring record on the Donald Ross-designed 1899 layout is 263 (25 under par), set in the inaugural event in 2019 by Nate Lashley. The course layout uses 17 holes from the Detroit Golf Club’s North Course – only the par-4 third hole is from the South Course – but the layout in how the holes are played, especially on the front nine, is different from the limbs.

It could be a day of firsts. Finau, the world No. 16 ranked player with three wins on the tour, will be looking for his first lead after 54 holes – he is 0 for 5 in this scenario. Pendrith is 0 to 1.
Their biggest challenger appears to be world number 19 Cameron Young, the sport’s top rookie, who is 17 under par and four shots back. Second in the Open Championship a few weeks ago in Scotland, Young, 25, has the most top 3s (six) without a win on the Tour this season, twice as many as anyone else.
Stephan Jaeger, a 33-year-old German ranked No. 205 in the world, enters fourth at under 16, five shots back.
And six shots behind in fifth place is the top-ranked player in the peloton at No. 4 in the world, Patrick Cantlay.
Play resumes at 7:35 a.m. and the co-leaders leave at 2 p.m.
