Detroit Golf Club, Detroit, MI — June 30, 2023

It was a busy day for scorekeepers at the Rocket Mortgage Classic today, with plenty of movement up and down the leaderboard. Taylor Moore still holds a portion of the lead. After yesterday’s score of 64, Moore shot 67 today for a two-day total of 13 under par.

Taylor Pendrith sits in a tie for first place as he matched those scores, just on a different day. Yesterday’s co-leader, Peter Kuest, could only manage a two-under score of 70, and he dropped into a six-way tie for ninth place at ten under. One of the players in that group, Andrew Landry, posted the low score of the day, a 63. Landry’s two-day total of 134 puts him right in the mix for the weekend.

Moving in the opposite direction. Sam Bennett was tied for third after round one at seven under. Today he carded a three over par 75 and was the last player to survive the cut at four-under-par.

Webb Simpson, Tom Kim, Hiedeki Matsuyama, Justin Thomas, Brandt Snedeker, and the amateur Gordon Sargent were some names who will not be playing over the weekend. All failed to make the cut.

Fowler In Contention

However, the big story of the day was Rickie Fowler avoiding the late-round trouble that dropped him into a tie for 13th after round one. Fowler was six-under-par on his round after 15 holes when he posted a bogey on the par-four 16th. Instead of the wheels coming off like yesterday when he finished bogey-bogey, he responded with an eagle on the par-five 17th to finish with a two-day total of 132, just one stroke out of the lead.

Ludvig Aberg is the golfer tied with Fowler at 12 under. Adam Schenk and Colin Morikawa are in a group of four tied at -11.

If “Moving Day” Saturday produces more up-and-down action on the scoring chart, things could get really exciting for Sunday’s final round.
