Rocket Mortgage extends major PGA title sponsorship

Rocket Mortgage will remain as the title sponsor of the Rocket Mortgage Classic through 2027, the mortgage lender has announced.

With the newly extended sponsorship deal, Rocket will continue to be the Official Mortgage Sponsor of the PGA TOUR. It will also be displayed on the event’s telecasts and social and digital channels. Rocket has been a PGA TOUR partner since 2014.

The company will also continue to support Rocket Mortgage Classic’s Changing the Course initiative, which aims to end the digital divide in Detroit by providing residents with access to technology, internet access, and digital literacy training programs.

“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,” said Jay Farner, CEO of Rocket Mortgage and Rocket Companies. “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 continues to get better by the year, and we expect this incredible momentum to maintain as we build the preeminent event on the PGA TOUR,” said Jason Langwell, executive director of the Rocket Mortgage Classic. “Our roster of the world’s best players continues to grow, the Detroit Golf Club’s classic layout is becoming a player favorite, and our tournament has become the must-attend event of the summer.”
