The Rocket Mortgage Classic is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour. It was first staged in 2019 at Detroit Golf Club in Detroit, Michigan. The tournament replaced the Quicken Loans National on the PGA Tour schedule.[1] It is the first PGA Tour event in history to be held completely within the Detroit city limits.[2] For the 2019 season, the event was part of the Open Qualifying Series, giving two non-exempt players entry into The Open Championship.
