DETROIT -- Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson have committed to play in the inaugural Rocket Mortgage Classic.

The announcement was made Thursday, two-plus months before Detroit-based Quicken Loans brings a PGA Tour event to the Motor City for the first time.

Johnson is currently the No. 1 player in the world ranking, Fowler is No. 10 and Watson ranks No. 17 in the world.

Kevin Kisner, Charles Howell III, Si Woo Kim, rookie Cameron Champ , Billy Horschel, Aaron Wise, Jason Dufner and Lucas Glover have also committed to play in Detroit. The competition June 27-30 at Detroit Golf Club will be two weeks after the U.S. Open and four weeks before the British Open, giving organizers hope more stars will join the field.
