Points and Payouts: Cam Davis Wins $1.6 Million and 500 FedExCup Points at Rocket Mortgage Classic

Some closings are harder than others, but of course, the Rocket Mortgage Classic is designed for this.

Cam Davis was crowned champion of the tournament’s sixth annual tournament on Sunday. He beat the four finalists by one stroke.
The 29-year-old Australian carded a two-under 70 in the final round to finish in the penultimate pairing at Detroit Golf Club at 18-under 270, just tying for the 54-hole leaders Akshay Bhatia and Aaron Rai, and settles into joint second place, 72 points behind. The loss of Batia in the bid war was particularly crushed because he knit it in the 18th par 4 hole for a scarecrow.
Davis’s second PGA tour title is in the same place as the first (2021), and he was the first golf he won several tournaments. He was +6600 at BetMGM pre-tournament to win this time around. With this one, he banks 500 FedExCup points and $1,656,000. He is currently exempt from The Sentry Championship, The Players Championship, The Masters and the PGA Championship in 2025. His exemption in the PGA Tour winners’ division runs through 2026. Bhatia was the third-shortest favorite to win in Detroit at +2000. He’s coming off his second win of the season (Valero Texas Open) and third in the past 12 months. Rai was tied for fifth-shortest at +2800. The Brit’s consolation is that the T2 is his best finish in 85 TOUR appearances. Min Wu Lee and Davis Thompson, the winners of the other two PGA tours, have filled the nearest call. Lee was equivalent to the +2000 Batia, but the Thompson was +3300. Tom Kim, fresh off a playoff loss at the Travelers Championship, was the fastest man to win the title with Rocket Mortgage at +1200, but lost with rounds of 73 and 68, respectively. Cameron Young (+1400) was the second-fastest and finished in four-way sixth place, two strokes off Davis’ pace. Young returned home Sunday with a score of 2-over 38, no birdies and bogeys on the 16th and 18th holes.
Five young talents contributed to Motown’s field of 156, led by Luke Clanton’s T10. The Florida State University amateur was +8000 to win. In his first TOUR start as a pro, Neal Shipley (+17500) was another three shots back at T20, while University of Virginia’s Ben James (+25000) checked up at T44. New TOUR member Michael Thorbjornsen (+6600) and Auburn’s Jackon Koivun (+12500) both missed the cut.
