Tiger Woods Golf Tournament is Renamed

March 24, 2014

Tiger Woods’ golf tournament at Congressional Country Club is getting a new sponsor — and a new name.Quicken Loans is the new title sponsor of Woods’ tournament, the PGA has announced. The sponsorship will last through 2017.

“It’s been near and dear to my heart to have this event, and to have Quicken Loans come in as our partner is just incredible,” Woods said at a press conference Monday.

The tournament helps fund Tiger Woods Foundation programs, including training centers to bring golf to young people and a learning center at Quantico. The tournament is also a tribute to the country’s armed forces; Woods’ father served in the Army Special Forces, and Monday Tiger remembered learning golf on military-base courses as a young golfer.
