Lexi Thompson strikes a sponsorship deal with Rocket Mortgage

Rocket Mortgage has announced a sponsorship deal with professional golfer Lexi Thompson.

Thompson is the latest addition to Rocket’s roster of professional golfers, including PGA TOUR superstars Bryson DeChambeau and Rickie Fowler. As part of the deal, Thompson will represent the company and display Rocket’s logo on her left sleeve during tour play.

“Lexi has been dominant on the women’s tour ever since she qualified to play in the US Women’s Open at only 12 years old -- and has grown her legend as one of the most elite golfers in the world ever since,” said Casey Hurbis, chief marketing officer of Rock Central, the marketing arm of Rocket Mortgage. “It is an honor to have Lexi on the Rocket Mortgage team and use our partnership to demonstrate the value that women bring to both the game of golf, our company and the mortgage industry. She is a great representation of true professionalism and a role model for girls across the country who can draw inspiration from Lexi’s dedication and drive – from a young golfer winning events to now one of the most dominant players on the tour.”

With an astounding 11 tour wins in just 11 years, Thompson is one of the most accomplished women golfers on the PGA TOUR. She is looking to represent the United States in Tokyo, Japan, at the 2021 Summer Olympics.

“Joining the Rocket Mortgage team is a great honor, and I can’t wait to get to work on shining a spotlight on our shared passions of innovation, breaking records and creating positive change in our local communities,” Thompson said. “Rocket Mortgage is obviously a leader in helping people achieve the American dream, but I’m even more impressed with how they’ve used their position in golf to have a real and lasting impact on the city of Detroit through their Changing the Course initiative. It’s an honor to represent a company so passionate about its clients and community.”

The lender said that the sponsorship is in line with its mission of empowering women. Last April, Rocket Pro TPO sponsored Paretta Autosport’s No. 16 Chevrolet in the Indianapolis 500, which was female-owned, female-driven, and predominantly female crewed.
