The 2014 Quicken Loans National

Previous Quicken Loans National champions include: Bill Haas (2013), Tiger Woods (2012, 2009), Nick Watney (2011), Justin Rose (2010), Anthony Kim (2008), and K.J. Choi (2007). Congressional Country Club will host the Quicken Loans National (formerly the AT&T National) for the 8th time starting in 2007, with Tiger Woods winning his own tournament twice already. Congressional Country Club is a par 71, 7,569 yard test and definitely favors long hitters – just take a look at the list of former champions.

Quicken Loans National Storylines to Follow:

  • News Update: Tiger Woods says he’ll be ready to play in his own tournament, so is a 3rd victory in the making? The big question is: Is Tiger ready or is another injury just around the corner? For the sake of the game, we hope he’s back and will add to the weekly drama.
  • The tournament will move from Congressional to nearby Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in 2015, returning to Congressional in 2016, 2018, and 2020, with sites for 2017 and 2019 still to be announced.

Jordan Spieth
Bill Haas
Brendon Todd
Round 4 Notes
  • Weather: 2-7mph in the AM, 7-9mph in the PM
  • (A) Snedeker to rebound after a poor 3rd round; Leishman was iffy on the course today but held it together
  • (B) Spieth in low pressure situation, looking to post a score; Haas defending champ hoping to finish strong.
  • (C) Pettersson is a perpetual letdown, Todd is 4 back and another 2-under could yield a top 3.

Comments
(A) Brandt Snedeker (11) Travelers
(9) U.S. Open
(45) Colonial
(MC) Byron Nelson
(8) 2013
(16) 2010
(5) 2009
Brandt has been playing poorly up until recently, but he found something at the U.S. Open. He’s the #1 Horse for the Course this week although it comes from three top 20s in the past 5 years in three attempts.
(A) Marc Leishman (11) Travelers
(37) Memorial
(21) Colonial
(3) Byron Nelson
(MC) 2013
(32) 2012
(MC) 2011
(7) 2010
(25) 2009
In a week with few good Group A options, Marc is playing the best recent golf amongst the group. His track record at Congressional is spotty though. Other options to consider: #3 Tiger Woods, #4 Gary Woodland, #5 Charles Howell III, #6 Daniel Summerhays, #7 Patrick Reed
(B) Justin Rose (12) U.S. Open
(MC) Memorial
(25) BMW PGA
(4) Players
(15) 2011
(1) 2010
(16) 2009
Great track record – #2 Horse for the Course; former champion; logical choice this week
(B) Jason Day (18) Travelers
(4) U.S. Open
(37) Memorial
(20) Masters
(21) 2013
(8) 2012
(9) 2010
(MC) 2009
Jason continues to get his game back and could be in the running for a victory sometime soon.
(B) Jordan Spieth (17) U.S. Open
(20) Memorial
(14) Colonial
(37) Byron Nelson
(6) 2013
(MC) 2012
Jordan just needs a few putts to fall and he’ll be in contention on Sunday. This is a long hitters course so you can see we’re stacking our lineup with solid, long hitters. Finished 6th in his 2nd time at Congressional last year.
(B) Bill Haas (35) U.S. Open
(8) Memorial
(21) Colonial
(26) Players
(1) 2013
(34) 2011
(MC) 2009
Defending champion who hasn’t missed a cut in over 10+ events. While he may not repeat, he’s a strong bet to yield consistent fantasy results this week. Others to consider: #5 Webb Simpson, #6 Billy Horschel, #7 Keegan Bradley, #8 Jason Dufner, #9 Brendon de Jonge, #10 Brian Harman
(C) Brendon Todd (17) U.S. Open
(8) Memorial
(5) Colonial
(1) Byron Nelson
(13) 2013
(72) 2012
Amazing run since his win at Byron Nelson, which came right after a missed cut. Had a nice finish here last year and if it wasn’t for a poor round at the U.S. Open, probably would have had a top 3.
(C) Carl Pettersson (7) Travelers
(3) St. Jude
(62) Memorial
(MC) Colonial
(34) 2011
(6) 2010
We’re going to debate the 2nd C Group player more as the week unfolds, but Carl has two straight top 10s and two good starts at Congressional. Others to consider: #3 Aaron Baddeley, #4 Charley Hoffman, #5 Ryan Palmer, #6 K.J. Choi, #7 George McNeil, #8 Nick Watney
