Sebonack Praised As U.S. Women's Open Host; Tiger Wants AT&T National To Stay Put
Published July 1, 2013
STAYING PUT: GOLFCHANNEL.com's Jason Sobel noted Tiger Woods is "lobbying to keep" the PGA Tour AT&T National at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., "beyond its current contractual obligation, which runs through next year." Woods said, "The membership has been fantastic. We've enjoyed our time here. Trust me, we'd like to come back." He added, "This is a huge sporting town. They really support their sports here" (GOLFCHANNEL.com, 6/30). Of the crowds at the AT&T National, Comcast Sportsnet’s Chick Hernandez said, “It’s been a little bit decreased obviously with Tiger not being here and then Justin Rose, as you said, withdrawing right before the tournament. ... If Robert Griffin III for the Redskins was advertised as being out here, then they might come out even more” (“Morning Drive,” Golf Channel, 6/29).
