Just ahead of tickets going on sale for the Rocket Mortgage Classic, the tournament added several new commitments for the tournament, including 2021 PGA Championship winner Phil Mickelson.
Mickelson, Patrick Reed, Webb Simpson, Kevin Kisner, Sungjae Im, Max Homa and Cameron Champ were announced Thursday morning. They join defending champion Bryson DeChambeau (the No. 4 ranked player in the world), Jason Day, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Harold Varner III in the field for the tournament, slated for July 1-4 at Detroit Golf Club.
Tickets for the tournament went on sale at 8 a.m. Thursday.
Mickelson, 50, became the oldest winner of a golf major on Sunday when he held off Brooks Koepka for the PGA Championship, Mickelson’s sixth major. The 45-time winner on the PGA Tour will make his first appearance at the tournament, which is in its third year.
