Detroit Golf Club, Detroit, MI — July 3, 2021

Joaquin Niemann and Tom Lewis lead the 2021 Rocket Mortgage Classic at the Detroit Golf Club at the midway point of the tournament. But, the big local story is that Flint’s Willie Mack III made the cut at a PGA Tour event for the first time in his career. Mack’s 1st round 68 combined with the 73 he shot yesterday gave him a 2-day score of -3.

The cut line fell at -2 as the Top 60 plus ties move on to the weekend. He is in good company, Brandt Snedeker, Bubba Watson, and PGA Champion Phil Mickelson all share the same score of 141. Defending Champion, Bryson DeChambeau, failed to make the cut coming in at 143, for a total of 1 under par. Hideki Matsuyama was forced to withdraw after a positive COVID test.

Willie Mack’s Round

Mack started the 2nd Round at 4 under par and moved to -6 with birdies on the 2nd and 5th holes. A bogey on the par-5, 7th hole, cost him a stroke. Unlike his opening round, where he scorched the back nine to begin the tournament, Bogeys on 11 and 16 left him at the 3 under total score.

Willie tees off early this morning heading out at 8:00 am. Seven strokes out of the lead is a big hill to climb, no problem, Mack is still in there swinging.
