Quicken Loans National/AT&T National (PGA Tour)

The Quicken Loans National, previously called the AT&T National, was played from the mid-2000-aughts to the late 2010s on the PGA Tour. The tournament was managed by the Tiger Woods Foundation and Woods served as the event's de facto host. It ended when the title sponsor withdrew to take on a new event and no replacement sponsor was found.

First played: 2007

Last played: 2018

"The National," as it was sometimes called, was played on the Fourth of July weekend in the Washington, D.C., area, and had a "military appreciation" theme.

Tournament scoring records of 259 and 21-under-par were set by Francesco Molinari in 2018. Molinari won by eight strokes that year, the event record for margin-of-victory. The 18-hole scoring record was 61, set by Troy Merritt in 2015.

Tiger Woods and Justin Rose were the only 2-time winners of this event.

Also known as: Quicken Loans National (2014-18) and AT&T National (2007-13) were the two names used.
