Detroit — Sam Saunders, the young PGA Tour professional who just so happens to be the grandson of the late Arnold Palmer, will hit the first tee shot in Rocket Mortgage Classic history when he tees off at the par-4 first hole at 6:45 a.m. Thursday.

Tournament officials released the first- and second-round tee times, after offering a sneak peek at some of the featured groups Monday.

Tee times run from 6:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. each of the first two days.

Pairings will be redone after the cut at the halfway point.

Tickets remain available for Wednesday's pro-am, Thursday's first round and Friday's second round, at RocketMortgageClassic.com. Saturday and Sunday are sold out.
