2014 06 173080392

It’s not all about Tiger Woods this week. The Quicken Loans National is packed with talent. So If Woods isn’t your thing don’t worry, here’s three groups to keep your eye on.


Quicken Loans National :: in the field


U.S. Open - Round One

Justin Rose, Keegan Bradley, Ernie Els


If you haven’t won the US Open then there’s no place for you in this group.

Els has previous at Congressional having won the US Open here in 1997. Justin Rose will also fancy his chances of winning, having triumphed at the Quicken Loans National in 2010. Keegan Bradley finished fourth in the US Open at Pinehurst, and has a fight on his hands to make the Ryder Cup team. Congressional is a US Open course so he will feel right at home.

U.S. Open - Round Two

Jason Dufner, Bill Haas, KJ Choi


The Quicken loans National won't be the first time this trio have met up this week. All three paid a visit to the White House to meet President Obama having played in last year’s Presidents Cup.

The way Jason Dufner’s season is going this year, he either challenges for the lead or he’s nowhere to be seen. He missed the cut in his last event…Bill Haas is the defending champion and Mr Consistency. He hasn’t missed a cut all year and consistency round Congressional is paramount. KJ Choi was undone last week by the birdie streak of a lifetime from Kevin Streelman. The 2007 Quicken Loans National champion will be out for revenge this time around.

Travelers Championship - Round Two

Brendon Todd, Webb Simpson, Brandt Snedeker


There will be a big crowd following this all American group, and with good reason.

Brendon Todd has been one of the surprise package on the PGA Tour this season. He came into 2014 ranked 186th in the world and is now 52nd. That tells its own story. Webb Simpson started the year in good form but has cooled off since then. With all eyes on Tiger, now could be the time for him to go under the radar and find his form. Brandt Snedeker is threatening to win a tournament. He finished ninth at Pinehurst and 11th at the Travellers. Expect him to challenge come Sunday.
