How to watch PGA Tour: Rocket Mortgage Classic

The Rocket Mortgage Classic is a newcomer to the PGA Tour, but only because it replaced the Quicken Loans National on the schedule in 2019 on the gleaming greens of Detroit Golf Club. In addition to the players taking part in this particular PGA tournament, you may meet some familiar faces at the Celebrity Scramble on July 26. Look for names like Calvin Johnson and Barry Sanders to take to the greens in a sport different from their usual sport.

The Rocket Mortgage Classic live stream runs from July 23 through July 31, with the official first round of the tournament taking place on Thursday, July 28. Any self-respecting golf fan should tune in and watch the tournament to keep tabs on who will take the lead in the world of golf this year.

Where to watch the PGA Tour: Rocket Mortgage Classic

If you have cable, you can catch the Rocket Mortgage Classic on the usual suspects: Golf Channel, CBS and others. However, you better watch it on a streaming service. Why? Cable channels tend to cost an arm and a leg, and it’s hard to play golf with just one of each. Instead, cut the cord and tune in through a streaming platform like Hulu, Sling TV, or Paramount Plus.
