The course is slightly on the easier side, and it was pretty much clear on day 1. There were lots of birdies and eagles on day 1 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, with plenty of players remaining under par for the day. Round 2 is currently underway, and there is plenty of action happening on the course. One such incident took place on par 3, 15.

Scott Brown scores an ace at Rocket Mortgage Classic

Scott Brown scored an ace on the 160 yards par 3, 15th hole. He probably had an eight iron in his hand, which was smashed straight as an arrow. The ball gently bounced on the green and went in, which marked Brown’s sixth career hole-in-one.

Scott was coming off a double bogey on the 14th hole and had already lost two strokes. But he recovered the deficit by surprisingly scoring an ace. From the reaction, it was clear that Scott never expected it would go inside the hole, and he looked shell-shocked. But even after this ace, he remained two over in the back nine.

The American golfer Scott Brown is currently 314, according to OWGR. He has previously won a single PGA Tour win under his belt as he won the Puerto Rico Open in 2013. He is not one of those prominent players who regularly wins on the Tour.

The leader Davis Thompson is currently leading after scoring 63, which is nine-under for the day. Round one was suspended at 9:02 p.m.ET because of darkness after a rain delay for over three hours. While Brandon Hagy, Tom Lewis, and Joaquin Niemann remained nine under for the day and are in contention. 

Other prominent players like Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau, and Rickie Fowler had a decent start. So they will need a solid second round to get in contention.
