BETHESDA, Md. - The flight of his shot into the 18th green was so pure that Tiger Woods immediately started walking and twirled his club, knowing that it effectively wrapped up another win at the AT&T National. Making it even more special was the sound of thousands of fans at the Congressional Country Club to see it. One day after spectators were kept away from the course because of debris from a violent wind storm, they returned Sunday in full force and got what they expected - Woods in his red shirt, outlasting Bo Van Pelt in a back-nine duel, and posing with another trophy.

BETHESDA, Md. - Growing up in South Korea, K.J. Choi learned golf by studying instructional books and videos by Jack Nicklaus, whose Memorial Tournament he won five weeks ago. Today when he holed out from a bunker for a birdie at the 17th hole that virtually assured his victory at the AT&T National, Choi did a fist pump familiar to even casual golf fans. Did he learn that bit of theatrics from the tournament host, Tiger Woods? "No," Choi said with a laugh, "[it] came out naturally.

The arrival of the AT&T National as the Philadelphia area's first PGA event since 2002 has brought another rare appearance to the environs of Aronimink Golf Club: new jobs, and lots of them. From young girls staffing a card-table lemonade stand to a retiree waving cars into a backyard parking lot, the Newtown club is ground zero for a temporary respite from the nation's economic doldrums and high unemployment. Curtis Brown, laid off from a job disinfecting rooms infected with HIV and the H1N1 virus at Albert Einstein Medical Center, found $12.50 an hour to guard a parking lot in sweltering heat well worth getting a ride from his girlfriend to pull a 12-hour shift.

TIGER WOODS plans to be in the Philadelphia area on the Fourth of July weekend, playing golf at glorious Aronimink Golf Club as part of the field at the AT & T National. That is if the neck problem that caused him to withdraw Sunday from The Players Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., will allow. Woods, who has held the world's No. 1 ranking for a record 599 weeks, visited Aronimink yesterday to promote the event, which aids his Tiger Woods Foundation. He spoke openly and easily to a room of about 200 people about his golf game, and didn't shy away from questions about his troubled personal life that has been fodder for tabloid shows, newspapers and websites since his infamous accident on Thanksgiving evening that started the news about his marital transgressions.

Justin Rose headed to the Philadelphia area for the AT&T National still smarting from a collapse at the previous PGA Tour event, where he started the final day with a 3-stroke lead and wound up in a distant tie for ninth. So when Rose sat for his post-round interview Saturday after firing a 3-under-par 67 to take a 4-shot lead heading into the final round at Aronimink Golf Club, he had every right to be terse when asked about last week, not wanting to relive the horror. Instead, Rose was up-front, candid, and eager to tell everyone that he can't wait to get out for Sunday's closing 18 to see what he had learned from the Travelers Championship outside of Hartford, Conn.

In his longshot bid to make the cut Friday at the AT&T National, Sean O'Hair enjoyed the cheers of a supportive crowd at Aronimink Golf Club and hit his driver markedly better than he had in the first round. But the story sadly was the same for O'Hair - his eighth missed cut in his last 11 PGA Tour events, and ninth in 16 tournaments overall this season. The West Chester resident shot a 1-over-par 71 in the second round on his home course, but his 36-hole score of 147 was 4 strokes higher than the cut figure.

They were playing the third round of the AT&T National on Saturday at Aronimink Golf Club when suddenly the Bob Hope Classic showed up. Surprisingly, unheralded early starters Cameron Tringale and Kevin Stadler tied the course record of 6-under-par 64. Then Chris Kirk and Steve Marino bettered that with 63s before Nick Watney lowered that to a new mark of 62. In all, 40 contestants - more than half the 76 who made the cut - posted subpar scores....

Jeff Overton sounded like one of those fire-suited shills who drive NASCAR billboards. Overton's 4-under-par total after two rounds tied him for fourth entering the third round of the AT&T National today. Afterward, Overton couldn't stop crediting the new set of irons he used to conquer the wiry, 3 1/2-inch rough that Aronimink Golf Club cultivated to welcome the transplanted tournament. "These new Mizunos are great. I'm able to work the ball out of that rough. It's huge to be able to work the ball when it gets down in the bottom of that grass," Overton said.

ARJUN ATWAL is one of those guys you won't come across in the PGA Tour media guide until you get to the "Other Prominent Members of the PGA Tour" section, which is right past the full-page biography of 2009 PGA champion Y.E. Yang and just ahead of the space devoted to "Prominent International Players. " He is a 37-year-old who was born in India and now lives in Windermere, Fla., which also happens to be the mailing address of one Tiger Woods. Funny how that stuff can work. Atwal received a minor medical extension for this year, after being sidelined for 4 months last season with a shoulder injury.

Tiger Woods said Wednesday that soreness in his left elbow would keep him from defending his title next week in the AT&T National at Congressional, and that he would not compete again until the British Open next month at Muirfield. The strain in his left elbow first became apparent during the opening round of last week's U.S. Open at Merion, when Woods was seen flexing his left wrist or holding his arm behind his back after shots out of the thick, punishing rough. In the first match-play round of the USGA Women's Amateur Public Links in Norman, Okla., Louise Yi of Cinnaminson defeated Abby Newton of Katy, Texas, 6 and 4. Aurora Kan of Avondale defeated Hannah Wood of Centennial, Colo., 2 and 1. TENNIS: The All England Club released the seedings for Wimbledon, which starts Monday.

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.

Tiger Passes Jack Well, yes. And then again, no. The golfer Eldrick Woods did, indeed, win another tournament, this one last Sunday, the AT&T National at sweltering, storm-lashed Congressional Country Club. In the process he crept ahead of Jack Nicklaus in career victories, a most impressive milestone and yet still not the one that Tiger covets most. No, that one, as most of us have known by heart for more than a decade, has 19 numbered on it, that being the total of majors needed by Tiger to overtake Jack.

BETHESDA, Md. - Brendon de Jonge had more birdies than people in his gallery Saturday at the AT&T National to take a 1-shot lead over Tiger Woods and two others. De Jonge had three birdies for a 2-under 69 on a bizarre day at the Congressional Country Club. An overnight wind storm toppled trees, leading tournament officials to keep spectators and all but essential volunteers off the course. Except for Woods, most players had no one watching. De Jonge was at 7-under 206 as he goes for his first PGA Tour win.   LPGA Tour ROGERS, Ark. - Veronica Felibert shot a 5-under 66 to stretch her lead to four strokes in the LPGA's NW Arkansas Classic.

BETHESDA, Md. - Bo Van Pelt kept bogeys off his card and picked up an extra shot when his wedge spun back into the hole for an eagle on Thursday for the lead in the AT&T National. On a day when the temperature was in the 90s and only seven players managed a score in the 60s, Van Pelt opened with a 4-under 67 on the venerable Blue Course to grab a 1-shot lead over Vijay Singh, Brendon De Jonge and Jimmy Walker, who bogeyed his final hole. Tiger Woods was never under par in the afternoon and opened with a 1-over 72. The AT&T National is inmaryland after two years at Aronimink in Newtown Square in 2010 and 2011.

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.
