WASHINGTON, D.C. – Quicken Loans, the nation’s largest mortgage lender, has signed on to be the title sponsor of the 2018 Quicken Loans National, the tournament announced today. The 2018 Quicken Loans National will be played at TPC Potomac, June 25-July 1. The title sponsor agreement with Quicken Loans is for one year.
The tournament also announced that Quicken Loans golfer Rickie Fowler will participate in the 2018 Quicken Loans National. This marks the 4th consecutive year Rickie has played in the tournament.
“We are excited to have Quicken Loans continue as the title sponsor of The National in 2018 and look forward to our tournament host Tiger Woods and the PGA TOUR’s stars coming to TPC Potomac June 25 – July 1,” tournament director Mike Antolini said. “Quicken Loans has been a terrific partner of the tournament since 2014 and we expect to have a great week for players, fans and the community.”
“The Quicken Loans National has a tremendous reputation for honoring active and retired service members,” said Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner. “We’re looking forward to another exciting weekend with some of golf’s biggest names, including our own partner, Rickie Fowler. But most of all we are looking forward to again shaking the hands of the men and women who have, and continue, to so selflessly serve this great country.”
Also returning to TPC Potomac for the 2018 Quicken Loans National is the Quicken Loans Shot for Heroes. Open to all fans attending the tournament from June 27-July 1, Shot for Heroes helps raise money for charity with every swing taken. In addition, fans have the chance to win prizes by landing a ball within the “Q” or winning a grand prize by making a hole in one. Quicken Loans Shot for Heroes has raised nearly $750,000 for U.S. military-affiliated charities since the program was initiated during the 2015 tournament.
Tickets for the 2018 Quicken Loans National are on sale. Starting at under $30, all ticket options are available at QLNational.com. Youth tickets for kids 15 and under are complimentary when accompanied by a ticketed adult and must be redeemed at the box office.
