Quicken Loans and the PGA Tour announced Wednesday a long-term agreement to create a professional golf tournament in Detroit beginning in 2019. The Detroit Golf Club is likely to host the event.
“Professional golf belongs in Detroit. The Motor City – and the entire state of Michigan – have long served as a premier golf destination with some of the best courses in the country. We will be working with the PGA TOUR to make the Detroit stop one of the most exciting and engaging events on the professional golf calendar,” Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner said in a statement posted on the PGA TOUR website.
“Quicken Loans has been a tremendous PGA TOUR partner for several years now, making an impact through the innovative spirit and community-first mindset the organization and its leaders bring to every endeavor,” said PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan. “We’re thrilled to take this new step in our partnership and bring a PGA TOUR event to the great city of Detroit.”
