Rocket Mortgage Sponsors PGA Pro Bryson DeChambeau
Rocket Mortgage, the nation’s largest mortgage lender, announced a new sponsorship of 2020 U.S Open golf champion Bryson DeChambeau.
DeChambeau, who won last year’s Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit, is known for crushing drives and as part of the sponsorship his driver will now don a Rocket Mortgage-branded headcover and the company’s logo will appear on the golfer’s left sleeve.
“Golf fans are glued to their screens every time Bryson takes the tee,” says Casey Hubris, chief marketing officer at Rocket Mortgage. “He is an innovator, changing the way people think about the great game of golf, just like we have shifted perceptions about how simple getting a mortgage can be with our digital solutions.
“At Rocket Mortgage, whether it is hosting the first-ever basketball game on a live aircraft carrier or creating the largest game of Super Bowl Squares in history, we love being on a big stage and finding opportunities and partners to establish truly epic activations that demonstrate how both Rocket Companies and athletes impact the outcome.”
Aside from winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic, DeChambeau has seven additional victories, including his first major win at the 2020 U.S. Open, over the course of his five years playing professional golf.
“I am looking forward to working with, and learning from, Rocket Mortgage and Rocket Companies as one of my goals is to extend my impact on communities by creating sustainable, positive change among the younger generation,” says DeChambeau. “As the champion of the Rocket Mortgage Classic, I got a chance to go deep and learn about who they are as a company and what they stood for. I realized there was a lot of alignment between my work helping kids achieve their educational goals and what they do to educate Detroit’s homeowners.”
