Round 2 is now in the books for the Rocket Mortgage Classic, and we still have an incredibly packed field with no pronounced favorite to go with. After Friday’s round, we have a duo of players on top- with Chris Kirk and Webb Simpson leading at -12. Both men had very good rounds on the day, with Kirk shooting a -7 65 and Simpson an -8 64.
Simpson, like Bryson DeChambeau, who is currently one shot behind, was expected to be one of the dominant favorites coming into the weekend due to a perceived ‘weakness’ in the field relatively speaking. However, Detroit Golf Club has been there for the taking, allowing a slew of golfers to make a charge toward the top. Joining DeChambeau one shot off the lead are six others, while two others are only two strokes back. It’s not quite as packed as after Thursday’s opening round, but it’s still got plenty of intrigue to it heading into the weekend.
