As the American automobile industry teetered on the brink of extinction a decade ago, Tiger Woods rolled into the 2009 Buick Open on cruise control.

Woods would win at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc Township, Mich., in August by three shots over Greg Chalmers, John Senden and Roland Thatcher. It would be the 69th victory of his career, fourth of 2009 and third at the Buick.

Woods’ win closed an era in pro golf, as Buick’s parent company, General Motors, got out of the golf-sponsorship game after 51 years. It would return with the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship at Doral in 2011.

Both Woods and GM would eventually crash in 2009. The automaker was in the early days of a government bailout and filed for bankruptcy on June 1. The move resulted in a grueling corporate reorganization, thousands of layoffs and hundreds of dealer closures. Woods would subsequently drive his Cadillac Escalade into a tree outside his Windermere, Fla., home on Black Friday five months later.

The rest, for Woods, was history and infamy.

The PGA Tour returns to Michigan this week for the first time in a decade with the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club.

This time, Woods is off traveling the world with his kids and girlfriend, focused on the British Open in three weeks.

But many of golf’s big names are in the Motor City ready to make a run at their share of a $7.3 million purse over four days and 72 holes. Among those in Detroit this week: Gary Woodland, Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson and, of course, Rickie Fowler.

Here are the Round 1 tee times and pairings for the Rocket Mortgage Classic.

All times listed are Eastern.
