The pair will take on former world No 1 Jason Day and Wesley Bryan in a nine-hole contest on the back nine of Detroit Golf Club, venue for this week’s PGA Tour event.

The special will be raising money for the tournament’s “Changing the Course” initiative, a multi-year campaign is to ensure every Detroit resident has access to the internet, technology and digital literacy training they deserve.

Detroit currently ranks as the least-connected city in America, with nearly a third of its homes without broadband of any type and the “digital divide” leaving them excluded from opportunities for education and employment.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun to get out there Wednesday for a little hit and giggle with some friends to raise money for a great cause,” Watson said.

Rocket Mortgage has pledged to donate $5,000 for every eagle made at the 14th, $25,000 for any hole-in-one at the 15th and $5,000 for a birdie at the 16th, with the AREA 313 Challenge offering a $313,000 donation for any golfer to score 3-1-3 on that three-hole stretch this week.
