As one of the four founding members of the Golf Association of Philadelphia in 1897, Aronimink Golf Club, which started out as the Belmont Golf Association, has experienced its share of historic moments in three centuries. The club's first professional, John Shippen, who was 19 when hired in 1898, was the first minority to play in a U.S. Open and likely the first golf pro born in the United States. He grew up on the Shinnecock Indian reservation on Long Island, where his father was a Presbyterian pastor.

One day after a neck injury prompted him to withdraw from a tournament in the middle of a round for the first time in his professional career, Tiger Woods fulfilled a commitment Monday to visit Aronimink Golf Club as the AT&T National's defending champion. But the main question on everyone's mind was whether the injury would allow Woods to return to Newtown Square in seven-plus weeks to compete in the PGA Tour event that benefits his charitable foundation. "Oh, if I'm playing, I'm playing here, no doubt," Woods said during a 23-minute news conference.

On Thursday, club president Joe Brooks and his fellow officers met with Kerry Haigh, managing director of championships and business development for the PGA of America. USGA representatives toured the Newtown Square layout Friday and spoke briefly with Brooks.

Dave Brookreson of the host course was named the winner of the 36-hole Lynnewood Hall Challenge Cup yesterday at Huntingdon Valley Country Club after finishing in a first-place tie with Jay Sigel, a former U.S. and British Amateur champion. Brookreson and Sigel each finished the two-day event at 142. After carding a 72 yesterday, Sigel, from Aronimink Golf Club, left to play in another tourney. Brookreson, who later completed a round of 74, was declared the victor by tournament officials because Sigel was unavailable for a playoff.

LEAVE THE clubhouse at Merion East, head toward Merion West along Ardmore Avenue, turn right on Darby Road, right again on Sproul Road, left on Bryn Mawr Avenue and finally right on Darby Paoli Road. There, right in front of you, would be Aronimink Golf Club, precisely 7 miles from one clubhouse door in Ardmore to the other in Newtown Square. Go back in time 3 years and Justin Rose was accepting the trophy for winning the AT&T National at Aronimink. Fast forward to yesterday and there was Rose, playing his 37th major, accepting the Nicklaus Medal and the U.S. Open Trophy after playing nerveless golf down the stretch at unforgiving Merion.

Aronimink Golf Club president Paul Coady thought that hosting the AT&T National for two years was a "good experience" for his members and appreciated the nice comments from officials of the tournament founded by Tiger Woods. But as far as the possible return of the PGA Tour event to the Newtown Square course after it completes its contract with Congressional Country Club in 2014, it's a matter of: not so fast. Coady said Wednesday there have been no discussions with AT&T National officials.

BETHESDA, Md. - The head of the Tiger Woods Foundation still smiles broadly when asked about the contributions of the officials, staff and golf course at Aronimink Golf Club during the two years the Newtown Square facility hosted the AT&T National. And with the PGA Tour event founded by the world's No. 1 player entering the last two years of its contract with Congressional Country Club, it could find a home at Aronimink again. Greg McLaughlin, president and chief executive officer of the Tiger Woods Foundation, said Monday he has stayed in touch with Aronimink officials since the tournament left Delaware County and would love to return there if Congressional did not wish to renew its contract with the event.

BETHESDA, Md. - To Tiger Woods' way of thinking, people have short memories, as illustrated by the guy who asked him at Monday's AT&T National media day: "How will you know when you're back?" "Well, I won a tournament already," Woods said, sparking laughter from the audience at Congressional Country Club as he referred to his victory in March at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Woods' win - his seventh at Bay Hill - broke a PGA Tour drought that had stretched back to September of 2009, or shortly before the time his life started to unravel with revelations about his marital infidelity.

After a breakthrough season last year, Webb Simpson finally appears to be comfortable playing on the PGA Tour. And that's not necessarily a good thing. The way the 26-year-old North Carolina native figures it, sharper golf comes from not being comfortable, from having to overcome nerves in a tough situation. "I think as an athlete, you're so used to feeling nerves and performing under pressure," Simpson said this week in advance of his trip Monday to Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square for an outing with Chase Sapphire card members.

Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square hosts thousands of golfers who hit thousands of balls into water hazards each year. This week, four people from Michigan decided to retrieve some of those strays - by diving into the ponds. According to Willistown police, the four were arrested at the club early Wednesday. In their white van and trailer, police found scuba equipment and about 8,000 golf balls, some marked "White Manor Country Club. " Police said the four claimed they had permission from White Manor to retrieve the balls from the murky water hazards and resell them.

Things just were not going well last spring and early summer on the PGA Tour for Sean O'Hair. He felt his golf game was improving but it didn't show in the results. He had missed 9 of 12 cuts, including the AT&T National at Aronimink Golf Club - his home course - and at the British Open, where he doubled-bogeyed the 36th hole at Royal St. George to finish 1 off the needed number. He felt patience and "staying in the moment" would lead to some success, and it happened rather unexpectedly the week after the British in late July when he captured the Canadian Open in a playoff, his first tour victory in 26 months.

Aronimink Golf Club's two-year audition in the professional golf spotlight took a final bow Sunday, well ahead of the forecast thunderstorms that bumped up the starting time for the fourth round of the AT&T National, but long after it became clear that this year's event was destined to lack the "extra" in extraordinary. It wasn't the fault of the golf course, which rebounded to play fairly on Sunday after enduring a brutal Saturday beat-down, and it wasn't the fault of the local organizers who produced a crisp, efficient tournament.

This is the way it's going these days for Jim Furyk. He began the second round of the AT&T National seeking a subpar number to make the 36-hole cut, but his drive on his first hole - the treacherous 10th at Aronimink Golf Club - came up against a root in the left rough that he did not see. He skulled his second shot across the fairway and wound up with double bogey. And that was pretty much it for the West Chester native. He finished with a 71 for an 8-over 148 total and his fourth consecutive missed cut on the PGA Tour this season.
