June 6, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Real Estate Weekly News -- Quicken Loans, in honor of its inaugural year as title sponsor of the Quicken Loans National, will reward one person $1 million if a player in the PGA TOUR event aces the 10(th) hole at legendary Congressional Country Club during tournament play from June 26 - June 29. An additional $25,000 will be donated to the charity of the professional golfer's choice.

Free registration for the Quicken Loans Hole-In-One Sweepstakes begins today. To enter, golf fans simply need to visit Each person can enter the contest once, but can also boost their chance of winning by referring friends and family members. All qualified sweepstakes entrants are eligible to win the $1 million grand prize.

"All eyes will be on the 10(th) hole of Congressional as the world's top golfers tee off for the chance to make one lucky American a millionaire," said Jay Farner, Quicken Loans President and Chief Marketing Officer. "First impressions are important, and I can't think of a better way to celebrate our first year as sponsor of the Quicken Loans National than to create even more excitement for an already world-class tournament."

Following the Quicken Loans National, the company will continue the excitement of its hole-in-one promotion by awarding a year's worth of mortgage payments to a randomly selected entrant for each ace made during official PGA TOUR events in the 2014 calendar year. Throughout the sweepstakes, and regardless of how many hole-in-ones are made, Quicken Loans will also randomly select a total of 60 entrants to receive a monthly mortgage payment on their home.

"We're certainly hoping someone is able to win the incredible $1 million prize at our tournament in June. But, even if that doesn't happen, it's still an amazing opportunity to win a year's worth of mortgage payments for the remaining TOUR events," said Farner. "Plus, by selecting monthly mortgage winners, we are guaranteeing no matter how many aces we see roll into the cup this year, 60 people will still be in the money."

A field of 120 PGA TOUR professionals will spend four days using every ounce of skill to master Congressional's 10(th) hole, a par-3 favorite stretching at 190 yards over water. Corey Pavin knocked in a hole-in-one on the 10(th) hole during tournament play at the 2008 National, and many professionals have come extremely close since.

To be eligible for the Quicken Loans Hole-In-One Sweepstakes, entrants must be 18 years of age and a U.S. citizen.
