Good news, golf fans: The Rocket Mortgage Classic is here to stay. For now, at least.
The PGA Tour and Rocket Mortgage have announced an extension of the title sponsorship for the Rocket Mortgage Classic through 2027.
“From the very beginning, Dan Gilbert’s vision was to bring a world-class golf event to Detroit, shining a light on the city and raising money for partners doing amazing work in our community. Since then, Rocket Mortgage, the tournament team and the PGA TOUR have all worked tirelessly to establish an event that has a lasting impact on golf fans as well as neighborhoods throughout Detroit,” Jay Farner, CEO of Rocket Mortgage and Rocket Companies, said in a statement.
He added, “We have built tremendous momentum and won multiple awards for our event from the PGA TOUR. But, more importantly, we have been able to take on very important initiatives, like helping to bridge the digital divide in Detroit. We are looking forward to seeing the impacts of this tremendous event for many more years to come.”
The Rocket Mortgage Classic benefits the Changing the Course, a program that “aims to end the digital divide in Detroit by making data-driven investments into the city and philanthropic partners that assist in providing technology, internet access and digital literacy training to residents,” according to a statement. “The goal is to ensure residents have access to these tools within a 15-minute walk of their home.”
In 2021, the Rocket Mortgage Classic brought Cameron Davis a win at his first PGA Tour event.
