The PGA Tour’s Rocket Mortgage Classic announced Wednesday that it will have fans in attendance when the tournament tees off in late June at Detroit Golf Club.

“Based on the most recent order from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services regarding Coronavirus policies for outdoor events, we are pleased to announce that the Rocket Mortgage Classic will welcome fans at Detroit Golf Club, June 28-July 4,” tournament executive director Jason Langwell said in a released statement.

More information about general admission tickets will be available soon, according to the statement.

For now, the only ticket option is a $313 tax-deductible donation for two tickets to the “Faces of Area 313” events scheduled for Monday and Tuesday of tournament week.

The statement did not outline how many total fans will be allowed at the tournament, which was held last year without fans because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We will continue to work with state and local health officials to create a safe and enjoyable experience for our fans,” Langwell said.

In a new state health department order, effective Thursday, golf tournaments can host more than 1,000 people “so long as they create and post a safety plan consistent with the MDHHS Large Outdoor Even Guidance, and no more than 20 persons per 1,000 square feet are gathered in any space available to patrons.”

Bryson DeChambeau is the defending champion and is scheduled to headline the field, along with major champions Jason Day and Bubba Watson, and Rickie Fowler and Harold Varner III.
