Quicken Loans National - Preview Day 2

Keyur Khamar

The PGA Tour leaves the Metropolitan area and heads just north of Washington, D.C. this week for the Quicken Loans National, which will be played at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm for the second straight year. It's the final year this tournament will be in the D.C.-area as it's set to move to Detroit Golf Club in 2019.

Tiger Woods, the tournament's host, returns to the field this year after just making an appearance as the host the past two seasons. He last played in the event in 2015, tying for 18th. This year Woods is in much different place, seemingly healthy and having put together a few strong starts as he continues his latest comeback. As a two-time winner of the event, many believe this could be Woods' best chances to get career win No. 80, although his two victories came at Congressional Country Club. To win he'll need to vastly improve with the putter, something he was seen tinkering with on Tuesday.

For Woods and other top players in the field like Rickie Fowler, this will likely be the last time we see them before the Open Championship, which will be played in late July at Carnoustie. For the rest of the field, the Quicken Loans National is one of the 15 events that's part of the Open's qualifying series. This week, four spots in the field at Carnoustie will go to the top four players not otherwise exempt who finish in the top 12 and ties.

The Golf Channel will carry live coverage on Thursday and Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET, and on Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. CBS will take over on the weekend at 3 p.m.
