Talk has been going on for a while that Quicken Loans has been looking to bring a PGA Tour event to the great city of Detroit. Well, the wait will soon be over as the PGA Tour is set to come to Detroit Golf Club starting in June 2019!
More from the WXYZ article:
Quicken Loans wants to make it a 2-3 week event, with concerts and other entertainment surrounding the tournament. Farner said the PGA is attracted to Detroit’s story, and believes the golfers will be, too.
Rickie Fowler is expected to be a part of next year’s event, as Quicken Loans sponsors the golfer. Tiger Woods’ foundation has been a beneficiary of The National in D.C., and Farner hopes the relationship Quicken Loans has built with Woods will help create a new chapter in Detroit.
The PGA Tour last held an event in Michigan in 2009, when the Buick Open’s decades-long run ended at Warwick Hills.
