Last year, Fowler earned his sixth tour victory by shooting 24-under-par 264 across four rounds. But even that wasn’t enough because Adam Hadwin and Collin Morikawa had the same 72-hole score, forcing a three-way playoff. Fowler prevailed in that playoff to take home the $1.584 million winner’s check after shooting the third-lowest score in the event’s first five years. Michigan sportsbook apps will have odds on this year’s event as it draws nearer.

In 2023, Fowler was the tournament favorite at +1200 odds, according to archives at golfodds.com. He started and ended as the favorite in Detroit even though he hadn’t won a PGA Tour event since 2019. Morikawa made it to the playoff after being listed at +1400 entering the event.

The only other player at +1400 or better last year before Round 1 was Tony Finau, who missed the cut. So did other favorites such as Hideki Matsuyama (+1600), Justin Thomas (+2000) and Tom Kim (+2000). Sungjae Kim (T-24th) and Max Homa (T-21st) also were listed at +2000 entering the week. Hadwin was +6000 entering the tournament but made the playoff.

Since 2019, a host of up-and-coming talent has emerged victorious in Detroit. Bryson DeChambeau, now on the LIV Tour, won the 2020 tournament at 23-under. Australian personality Cameron Davis captured the title at 18-under in 2021.

Throw in Finau’s 2022 win at 26-under and Nate Lashley’s lone tour win at 25-under in 2019 and you can see that these PGA Tour golfers can put up some seriously low scores at the Detroit Golf Club. With the tournament now heading for its sixth incarnation in 2024, a host of pros are returning to Michigan’s biggest city to get their hands on the event’s $9.2 million purse in 2024.

Of the first five iterations of the event, two were determined in a playoff, with Fowler and Davis coming out on top. Davis won in 2021 against Troy Merritt and Joaquin Niemann. The largest margin of victory was Lashley’s six-stroke edge at the inaugural event in 2019.
