Home I’LL BE BACK:

While a battle exists to see who will reside inside the White House for the next four years, voter turn out vehemently supported the return of the world’s # player to the country’s capital. The AT&T National will once again return to Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., for an additional three years after members voted to bring the tournament back to the Blue Course. The voting results were jointly announced by Greg McLaughlin, president of the Tiger Woods Foundation and Bret Hart, president of Congressional Country Club. The new term for the PGA Tour event runs from 2012-2014 with an additional three year option for 2015-2017.
"I'm very proud to host my event at such an amazing, historic course and I would like to thank the members and board at Congressional Country Club," tournament host Tiger Woods said. "Everyone involved with Congressional Country Club has embraced this event, and I am grateful for their tremendous support. I know the players and the fans enjoy the Blue Course, and I'm thrilled we will be able to hold our championship there long into the future."
The AT&T National sees some of golf's finest players to the D.C. area while benefiting the Tiger Woods Foundation and paying tribute to the men and women in our Armed Forces. "Our members have voted to continue the partnership with Tiger Woods, the Tiger Woods Foundation and the PGA Tour to bring professional golf to the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area," Hart said. "We are very excited to host Tiger Woods and professional golf as they face the challenges of our Blue Course as well as the positive economic impact and charitable giving that the tournament generates for our region."
Woods will return to Congressional Country Club on July 1-5 for the 2009 AT&T National. The tournament has not yet announced a location for the 2010 and 2011 events while Congressional Country Club hosts the U.S. Open.
