Detroit, MI — June 23, 2019
Michigan loves golf! Sure, you can play year-round in Florida and Arizona. But, the folks in the Mitten State jam as many tee times as they can in the season from the last snowfall of winter to the first appearance of the white stuff in fall.
Last year’s Ally Challenge proved that Michiganders love the PGA Tour. The return of professional golf to Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club raised the 2nd largest amount for local charities of any 1st-year tournament in the history of the PGA Tour Champions.
The PGA Comes to Detroit
This week’s inaugural Rocket Mortgage Classic brings the PGA Tour to the Detroit Golf Club.
The first time Detroit has hosted a PGA Tour Event. The winner’ share of the purse, a cool $1.3 million is attracting a strong field including the World’s Top Ranked Golfer Dustin Johnson. Fan favorites Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson, and Ernie Els are scheduled for the event.
Tournament organizers just announced that Saturday and Sunday’s final rounds have sold out. Guaranteeing the financial success of the event. A field of 156 players will tackle the Donald Ross designed course June 27-30.
