The 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic announced nine player commitments Wednesday, headlined by Will Zalatoris and Tony Finau.

Justin Rose, Jason Day, Cameron Young, Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar, Kevin Kisner and RMC defending champion Cam Davis have all agreed to play so far. The tournament is scheduled for July 28-31 at the Detroit Golf Club.

Zalatoris is No. 12 in the latest Official World Golf Ranking and finished runner-up at the US Open and PGA Championship. Last season in Detroit, he finished last among the 77 players to make the cut, shooting even-par 288 for the tournament after rounds of 2-over 74 and 4-over 76 on the weekend.

Finau is ranked No. 17 and has represented the US on its past two Ryder Cup teams.

“We are excited to announce such an accomplished group of players joining us in Detroit this summer, and this is only the beginning of our player commitments,” said Jason Langwell, executive director of the Rocket Mortgage Classic.

“Having golfers of this caliber commit to play in the Rocket Mortgage Classic speaks to the momentum that we are building and the desire of top players to be part of our event. It is also terrific to have their support for our Changing the Course initiative to end the digital divide in Detroit. ”
