For the first time in PGA Tour history, the biggest names in Golf will be making a stop in Detroit.

The Rocket Mortgage Classic will be played at the Detroit Golf Club June 24-30 of 2019. It will follow the U.S. Open and the Travelers Championship.

“We are extremely pleased with the way the schedule has come together, particularly with the number of changes that were involved and the strength of the partnerships required to achieve this new look,” said PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan. “It’s been our stated objective for several years to create better sequencing of our tournaments that golf fans around the world can engage in from start to finish. And by concluding at the end of August, the FedExCup Playoffs no longer have the challenge of sharing the stage with college and professional football. This will enhance the visibility of the FedExCup Playoffs and overall fan engagement with the PGA TOUR and the game as a whole.”
