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.

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.

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.
