Rocket Mortgage Classic staying at Detroit Golf Club 2027
DETROIT – The Rocket Mortgage Classic PGA Tour golf tournament remains at Detroit Golf Club until 2027, after a five-year extension between the title sponsor and the course was made official on Monday.
To celebrate, Rocket Mortgage golf brand ambassadors Bryson DeChambeau, fresh off Sunday’s historic Ryder Cup victory at Whistling Straights in Haven, Wisconsin, and Rickie Fowler visited the club.
The original contract between the Tour and the Detroit Golf Club was for four years until 2022.
After taking place on the weekend of July 4 for the past two years, the Rocket Mortgage Classic 2022 will run July 28-31, which could attract bigger names.
Cam Davis won this year’s event in a three-way playoff against Troy Merritt and Joaquin Niemann to claim his first PGA Tour title.
DeChambeau said he slept five hours overnight to celebrate Team USA’s record 19-9 victory over Team Europe.

He won the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic with no fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but missed the cup in 2021 during a tumultuous week.
On Monday, he sang the praises of the event and Detroit fans again.
âI can’t appreciate the fact that it’s going to be here for another five (years) and many more to come I’m sure,â DeChambeau told Brad Galli of WXYZ Detroit. âThis golf course suits me very well so I’m super excited about it. Looking to hit bombs every year and give fans what they want.
âZone 313 is becoming more and more family-friendly for me too. It’s definitely a place that caught my eye, and I want to help as much as possible here.
