AT&T National being used as tune-upSubmitted by Jasmineiey on Sat, 10/22/2011 - 04:45
The AT&T National is being held at the Aronimink Golf Club in Newton Square, Pa., June 30-July 3. The field is wide open this year as a few of the best golfers in the world will take the weekend off. Tiger Woods is on the scene this weekend as the host of tournament, but he is not giving any indication when he will return to the PGA Tour.
This week is the best chance for a long-shot to blast out of the main pack and win their first PGA tournament. Players like Charlie Wi, Jhonattan Vegas and Charley Hoffman are all legitimate golfers with a chance to bring home a coveted trophy at the AT&T National.
The tournament has always been a tune-up event for Tiger Woods, but many of the world's top-ranked golfers have elected to pass on this year's event. Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell are all focusing on the British Open, along with Matt Kuchar and Luke Donald to name just a few.
The best bets for this year's AT&T National range from Hunter Mahan and Nick Watney to Webb Simpson and Ryan Moore. Each golfer has an edge in different categories that translate well for the Aronimink Golf Club.
