The Quicken Loans National, formerly AT&T National, is a relatively young tournament by PGA Tour standards, first being held in 2007. While the tournament is one of only five on the tour with "invitational" status, it has gained a strong following thanks to myriad factors. The event is "hosted" by PGA great Tiger Woods, and the proceeds from the event go to fund his charity, The Tiger Woods Foundation. The tournament is held each year around the Fourth of July at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland, which is only a short drive away from Washington, D.C. The event's combination of the governmental elite and holiday crowds makes it one of the most popular events on the PGA calendar. As a tournament with invitational status, the field is far more exclusive and competitive than events with "Open" status, which helps to narrow the group of golfers down to about 120 participants. The event replaced the now-defunct The International and continues the tradition of top PGA Tour golf in Washington D.C..
