The PGA Tour announced the change Thursday, a day before the 2016 edition of the event. The new name is the tournament is still to be determined, but the event will continue to run from Friday to Labor Day Monday.
“We are extremely grateful to Deutsche Bank for its dedication and commitment to building the Deutsche Bank Championship into a premier event on the PGA Tour and an exceptionally worthy component of the FedExCup Playoffs,” said PGA Tour deputy commissioner Jay Monahan. “We look forward to celebrating a highly successful final week with Deutsche Bank before transitioning to EMC as the new title sponsor.”
EMC has been involved with the event since its start in 2003 as a Founders Club partner and became a local presenting sponsor.
