The AT&T National golf tournament will be held June 30 to July 3 at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square. The Tiger Woods Foundation is the tournament charity, but Woods is no longer the host of the tourney. AT&T dropped him as a sponsor after the news of his cheating on his wife became public in November 2009. Woods played in the event last summer and is expected to compete in 2011. Justin Rose won the 2010 tournament by a stroke over Ryan Moore. The 2011 tournament will be the last one at Aronimink, as the tourney will return to its home at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., in 2012.

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.

AT&T National Notes BETHESDA, Md. - Considering he was battling an upset stomach during the round, Sean O'Hair had no complaints about his 1-over par yesterday in the AT&T National. "For how I'm feeling, that 71 feels like 4 under," said the 24-year-old O'Hair, a Texas native now living in West Chester. O'Hair's stomach started acting up at lunchtime, before his 1:15 tee time at Congressional Country Club. The round involved at least one unscheduled, hurried comfort stop.

Through 17 holes yesterday, Sean O'Hair was having a very good day at the office at the AT&T National. At 4 under par on his final round, O'Hair had played his way back to par for the tournament, and a fat check was within his grasp. Then came a disastrous double bogey. "I got hosed," said O'Hair, 24, from West Chester, who believes he got two bad breaks on the finishing hole at Congressional Country Club. O'Hair's horrible 18th began with a 323-yard tee shot that he pushed to the right.

Arjun Atwal, who frequently practices with Tiger Woods in the Isleworth development near Orlando, Fla., where they both reside, discovered how beneficial a practice round with his neighbor during U.S. Open week could be. While they practiced together at Pebble Beach, Atwal and Woods discussed schedules, and the 37-year-old Atwal did not mention any plan to play in the AT&T National at Aronimink Golf Club.

BETHESDA, Md. - Since his name is in the official title of the tournament, a collective sigh of relief could be heard around here yesterday when Tiger Woods toured Congressional Country Club with a smooth 66. The hot, 4-under-par round did more than give Woods a cushion from the cut line. It sent him up the leader board in the AT&T National, into the shadows of contention heading into the weekend. At the midway point of this new tournament, Woods, who is doing triple duty as player, host and new father, stands at 1 under, 6 shots behind coleaders K.J. Choi and Stuart Appleby, both of whom shot 67 yesterday to reach 7 under.

It had been an emotional whirlwind for golf fans in the Philadelphia area over the last four months as they tried to guess whether Tiger Woods would participate at Aronimink Golf Club this summer in the AT&T National. After a year of high anticipation, Woods' highly publicized transgressions, which compelled AT&T to drop him as a national spokesman Dec. 31, resulted in the loss of his role as host of the PGA Tour event. Then as his family problems worsened, there was a possibility he might not play at all. But Wednesday, Woods put all doubts to rest, announcing on his Web site that he would indeed compete in the AT&T National, a tournament that benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation, on July 4 weekend at Aronimink, in Newtown Square.

The last time we saw Phil Mickelson, he had missed the cut in the U.S. Open, was clutching his injured left wrist, and could not wait to put Oakmont Country Club in his rearview mirror. Three weeks later, the wrist is better and Mickelson is smiling again, healthy and happy to be in the nation's capital for the Fourth of July and the AT&T National, a new tournament hosted by his archrival, Tiger Woods. "It's OK," Mickelson said of his wrist yesterday after a practice round at Congressional Country Club, nestled in one of Washington's posh suburbs.

Tiger Woods entered the room with a slight limp and unwavering determination to play the U.S. Open. "The knee's doing better," said Woods, who had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on April 15. "The rehab is boring. It gets really old riding that bike, man. But everything's on schedule. Just been training and trying to get this thing organized for the Open, and it's right on schedule for that. " Woods spoke yesterday at Congressional Country Club in Washington. The second annual edition of Woods' own PGA Tour event, the AT & T National, returns to Congressional in July.

The AT&T National, the PGA Tour event hosted by Tiger Woods for the last two years in the Washington, D.C., area, could be played at Aronimink Golf Club in 2010 and 2011 if its members approve, the Washington Post reported last night on its Web site. Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., which is hosting the tournament in 2009 for the third straight year, will be undergoing renovation of its greens in 2010 before the club's hosting the 2011 U.S. Open and will not be available for Woods' event either year.

TIGER WOODS said yesterday he doesn't know when he will return to golf, and questioned at one point whether he'd ever play again. Speaking at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., in his role as host of next month's Quicken Loans National, Woods said his back injury became so debilitating this year it caused him to doubt his ability to play golf again. "Forget about playing golf at the highest level. I couldn't get out of bed," Woods said. "I was certainly doubtful at that point.

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.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - For what seemed like way too long, golf searched mightily to uncover the next Jack Nicklaus. But nobody came close to fulfilling those unreal expectations, not even Phil Mickelson, until of course Tiger Woods came along. There's a reason why only so many Jacks and Tigers are in the history books. For the last decade, that hasn't stopped us from trying to identify the game's incoming king. It's what we do. There's been no shortage of candidates. Simply ask Sergio Garcia.

K.J. CHOI WASN'T aware he was in the midst of going above and beyond until he'd actually done it. Score one for focus. The 41-year-old Korean got on one of those rolls on the front side, his second nine, yesterday in the AT&T National at Aronimink Golf Club. He made four consecutive birdies, starting at No. 4, and finished his second round off with a kick-in birdie at the par-5 ninth. That gave him a 6-under-par 64, which equaled the competitive course record Justin Rose established in the second round of his eventual AT&T victory a year ago. Choi, who won the inaugural AT&T in 2007 at Congressional Country Club, has a two-shot lead, at 133, over four others after 36 holes of an event he missed last year.

In a decision that should hardly come as a surprise to anyone who has paid attention the last few months, Tiger Woods let it be known yesterday he will not play in next week's PGA Tour AT & T Tournament, which benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation, at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square. "Doctor's orders," Woods posted on Twitter. "I'll be sitting out . . . I will still be in Philly to support the event! Feeling stronger every day, but [still] not 100 percent. " He will hold a news conference at 2 p.m. Tuesday, after signing the "We Salute our Heroes" tribute wall on which fans may write personal messages to the U.S. military.

Tiger Woods ended all the speculation, and doubt, about whether he would be healthy enough to play in next week's AT&T National at Aronimink Golf Club by announcing Wednesday that he will not compete. "Doctor's orders," Woods said in a Twitter post. "Feeling stronger every day, but not 100%. " Woods is recovering from a sprained medial collateral ligament and a mild left Achilles tendon strain, both suffered when he took an awkward stance and tried to hit a shot off pine straw in the third round of the Masters.

As much as Tiger Woods wanted to be healthy and ready to compete in the U.S. Open next week, he became increasingly concerned with how much additional time he would miss if he aggravated injuries to his left knee and his left Achilles tendon in the national championship. So he pulled out of the Open on Tuesday. As his Twitter post expressed it: "Short-term frustration for long-term gain. " But Woods did not provide a definition for short-term, which leaves his fans wondering if he will be able to play in the AT&T National at Aronimink Golf Club, which begins June 30, just over three weeks away.
