5 Interesting Things to Know About the Quicken Loans National

The week after a major tournament feels like the recovery from a serious hangover.

This upcoming week is the Quicken Loans National at Congressional CC in Bethesda, MD.

Despite its lack of a star power, we could potentially see an emerging star or witness a notable find his form.

Here are the Top 5 interesting things to know about the Quicken Loans National:

1. Tiger Woods Will Not Play, But…

The legendary golfer will be in attendance, since the tournament is hosted by his charity, the Tiger Woods Foundation.

2. Rickie Fowler is the Top-Ranked

The world’s highest ranked player in the field, and the only one in the Top 10, is fan favorite Fowler — who is No. 6 in this week’s OWGR.

3. Ruth’s Chris Concession Stands?!

Chowing down on a Ruth’s Chris Steak House Jumbo Lump Crabcake Sandwich or a Ruth’s Chris Steak House Sliced Filet Steak Sandwich — while watching golf?!

Enough said.

4. The Shortest Golfer This Weekend is…

Zac Blair, who at 5’6″, actually measures one inch shorter than the surprise early round leader at U.S. Open, Andrew Landry (5’7″).

Blair, is apparently a big Lego connoisseur.

5. Bryan Bros in the Field

YouTube Sensation Wes Bryan (a part of the Bryan Bros, known for their skillful trick shots) is lighting up the Web.Com Tour and could be in contention this upcoming weekend.
