The mortgage company was the sponsor from 2014 to 2017, and originally it did not renew its contract when it ran out. The tournament, organized by Tiger Woods’ foundation, was also known as the AT&T National from 2007 to 2013.

The National will be played at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm in Potomac, Maryland, for the second year in a row. The first round will tee off on Thursday, June 28.

Tournament organizers also announced that Rickie Fowler, a Quicken Loans spokesman, will play The National for the fourth straight year. It was previously announced that Woods will play in the event for the first time since 2015.

“We are excited to have Quicken Loans continue as the title sponsor of The National in 2018 and look forward to our tournament host Tiger Woods and the PGA TOUR’s stars coming to TPC Potomac June 25 – July 1,”

The Quicken Loans National (known as the AT&T National from 2007 to 2013) is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour in the Washington D.C. area, usually held in late June or during the Fourth of July weekend, although in 2015 it ran from July 30 to August 2. It is hosted by Tiger Woods and benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation.

The first edition in 2007 was held July 5–8 at the Blue Course of the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland, northwest of Washington. The event returned to Congressional in 2008 and 2009 and has been held midway between the U.S. Open and The Open Championship to ensure a strong field of competitors. The National is part of the Open Qualifying Series that gives non-exempt players a chance to compete in The Open.

The event was officially announced on March 7, 2007, to replace The International, which tour officials had abruptly cancelled four weeks earlier on February 8. The Quicken Loans National is a standard 72-hole stroke play event, and does not use the modified Stableford scoring system used by The International in Colorado.

The D.C. area hosted a regular tour event for over a quarter century; the Kemper Open arrived in 1980, but was terminated after the 2006 event. It was played at Congressional from 1980 to 1986, then moved to the nearby TPC at Avenel in 1987. Later renamed the Booz Allen Classic, it returned to Congressional in 2005, to give Avenel time to undergo renovations, which did not occur.

Quicken Loans National 2018 Congressional originally agreed to host the event for the first two years, and after opting out of hosting the 2009 U.S. Amateur, agreed to host the event in 2009 as well.[3][4] The Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, hosted the 2010 and 2011 events, due to Congressional being reconfigured for the 2011 U.S. Open.The tournament was played at Congressional from 2012 to 2014[6] and returned in 2016. It was played in Virginia at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville in August 2015 and was played at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm in Potomac in 2017.Quicken Loans National 2018

Other courses that were originally considered for the new tournament were in the Kansas City, Minneapolis-Saint Paul, and Portland areas. Possible sites for the 2010 and 2011 events were the TPC at Avenel (now TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm, former site of the Booz Allen Classic) and Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, (four-time host of the Presidents Cup).[8][9] CBS Sports and Golf Channel currently carry the Quicken Loans National on television.

Quicken Loans National 2018 After the 2017 tournament, the Quicken Loans sponsorship deal ended leaving The National with no current sponsor for 2018,scheduled for June 28 to July 1.The PGA Tour also announced that it would be buying out the remaining two years of its contract with Congressional Country Club to host the 2018 and 2020 editions. Despite a lack of title sponsor and host course, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan confirmed that the event would occur in 2018, stating, “We made the commitment. Our players are going to be showing up there and we’re going to be playing for that amount of money.” On May 30, less than a month before the event, Quicken Loans agreed to sponsor for a fifth consecutive year.

Quicken Loans National 2018 The Detroit News reported in its editions on May 8, 2018, that the Detroit Golf Club is close to inking a deal with the tour to host in 2019

US Open Golf 2018

Dates: June 14-17, 2018
Location: Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, New York
Tickets: See “How to get U.S. Open tickets”
Players in the field: Listed below
Shinnecock Hills is one of the five founding clubs of the United States Golf Association.

US Open Golf 2018 It is a private club that dates its origins to 1891. It most recently hosted the U.S. Open in 2004.

Previous US Opens at Shinnecock Hills
Here are the years and champions of U.S. Opens previously played at this golf course:

History
The first U.S. Open was played on October 4, 1895, on a nine-hole course at the Newport Country Club in Newport, Rhode Island. It was a 36-hole competition and was played in a single day. Ten professionals and one amateur entered. The winner was Horace Rawlins, a 21-year-old Englishman, who had arrived in the U.S. earlier that year to take up a position at the host club. He received $150 cash out of a prize fund of $335, plus a $50 gold medal; his club received the Open Championship Cup trophy, which was presented by the USGA US Open Golf 2018

In the beginning, the tournament was dominated by experienced British players until 1911, when John J. McDermott became the first native-born American winner. American golfers soon began to win regularly and the tournament evolved to become one of the four majors.

U.S. Open Trophy at the 2008 PGA Golf Show.
Since 1911, the title has been won mostly by players from the United States. Since 1950, players from only six countries other than the United States have won the championship, most notably South Africa, which has won five times since 1965. A streak of four consecutive non-American winners occurred from 2004 to 2007 for the first time since 1910. These four players, South African Retief Goosen (2004), New Zealander Michael Campbell (2005), Australian Geoff Ogilvy (2006) and ArgentineÁngel Cabrera (2007), are all from countries in the Southern Hemisphere. Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell (2010) became the first European player to win the event since Tony Jacklin of England in 1970; three more Europeans won in the next four editions, making it only three American wins in the 11 tournaments from 2004-2014.

Qualification

U.S. Open play is characterized by tight scoring at or around par by the leaders, with the winner usually emerging at around even par. A U.S. Open course is seldom beaten severely, and there have been many over-par wins (in part because par is usually set at 70, except for the very longest courses). Normally, an Open course is quite long and will have a high cut of primary rough (termed “Open rough” by the American press and fans); undulating greens (such as at Pinehurst No. 2 in 2005, which was described by Johnny Miller of NBC as “like trying to hit a ball on top of a VW Beetle”); pinched fairways (especially on what are expected to be less difficult holes); and two or three holes that are short par fives under regular play would be used as long par fours during the tournament (often to meet that frequently used par of 70, forcing players to have accurate long drives). Some courses that are attempting to get into the rotation for the U.S. Open will undergo renovations to develop these features. Rees Jones is the most notable of the “Open Doctors” who take on these projects; his father Robert Trent Jones had filled that role earlier. As with any professional golf tournament, the available space surrounding the course (for spectators, among other considerations) and local infrastructure also factor into deciding which courses will host the event

The U.S. Open is open to any professional, or to any amateur with an up-to-date men’s USGA Handicap Index not exceeding 1.4Players (male or female) may obtain a place by being fully exempt or by competing successfully in qualifying. The field is 156 players.

About half of the field is made up of players who are fully exempt from qualifying. The current exemption categories are:

Winners of the U.S. Open for the last ten years
Winner and runner-up from the previous year’s U.S. Amateur
Winner of the previous year’s Amateur Championship[6]
The previous year’s Mark H. McCormack Medal winner for the top-ranked amateur golfer in the world[6]
Winners of the previous year’s U.S. Mid-Amateur and U.S. Junior Amateur
Winners of each of Masters Tournament, Open Championship and PGA Championship for the last five years
Winners of the last three Players Championships
Winner of the current year’s BMW PGA Championship
Winner of the last U.S. Senior Open
In the year after the Olympic golf tournament, the reigning men’s gold medalist
Top 10 finishers and ties from the previous year’s U.S. Open
Players who qualified for the previous year’s Tour Championship
The top 60 in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) as of two weeks before the start of the tournament
The top 60 in the OWGR as of the tournament date
Special exemptions selected by the USGA
All remaining spots after the second top 60 OWGR cutoff date filled by alternates from qualifying tournaments.
The exemptions for amateurs apply only if the players remain amateurs as of the tournament date.

Before 2011, the sole OWGR cutoff for entry was the top 50 as of two weeks before the tournament. An exemption category for the top 50 as of the tournament date was added for 2011, apparently in response to the phenomenon of golfers entering the top 50 between the original cutoff date and the tournament (such as Justin Rose and Rickie Fowler in 2010).

Through 2011, exemptions existed for leading money winners on the PGA, European, Japanese, and Australasian tours, as well as winners of multiple PGA Tour events in the year before the U.S. Open. These categories were eliminated in favor of inviting the top 60 on the OWGR at both relevant dates. Starting with the 2012 championship, an exemption was added for the winner of the current year’s BMW PGA Championship, the European Tour’s equivalent of The Players Championship.

Potential competitors who are not fully exempt must enter the Qualifying process, which has two stages. Firstly there is Local Qualifying, which is played over 18 holes at more than 100 courses around the United States. Many leading players are exempt from this first stage, and they join the successful local qualifiers at the Sectional Qualifying stage, which is played over 36 holes in one day at several sites in the U.S., as well as one each in Europe and Japan. There is no lower age limit and the youngest-ever qualifier was 14-year-old Andy Zhang of China, who qualified in 2012 after Paul Casey withdrew days before the tournament.

USGA special exemptions
The USGA has granted a special exemption to 34 players 52 times since 1966. Players with multiple special exemptions include: Arnold Palmer (1978, 1980, 1981, 1983, 1994), Seve Ballesteros (1978, 1994), Gary Player (1981, 1983), Lee Trevino (1983, 1984), Hale Irwin (1990, 2002, 2003), Jack Nicklaus (1991, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000), Tom Watson (1993, 1996, 2000, 2003, 2010).

Irwin won the 1990 U.S. Open after accepting a special exemption. The last time a special exemption was extended was for the 2016 U.S. Open in which Retief Goosen accepted.

Prizes
The purse at the 2017 U.S. Open was $12 million, and the winner’s share was $2.16 million. The European Tour uses conversion rates at the time of the tournament to calculate the official prize money used in their Race to Dubai (€10,745,927 in 2017).

In line with the other majors, winning the U.S. Open gives a golfer several privileges that make his career much more secure if he is not already one of the elite players of the sport. U.S. Open champions are automatically invited to play in the other three majors (the Masters, The Open Championship (British Open), and the PGA Championship) for the next five years, as well as The Players Championship, and they are exempt from qualifying for the U.S. Open itself for 10 years.

Winners may also receive a five-year exemption on the PGA Tour, which is automatic for regular members. Non-PGA Tour members who win the U.S. Open have the choice of joining the PGA Tour either within 60 days of winning, or prior to the beginning of any one of the next five tour seasons.

Finally, U.S. Open winners receive automatic invitations to three of the five senior majors once they turn 50; they receive a five-year invitation to the U.S. Senior Open and a lifetime invitation to the Senior PGA Championship and US Open 2018.

The top 10 finishers at the U.S. Open are fully exempt from qualifying for the following year’s Open, and the top four are automatically invited to the following season’s Masters.

Champions

Willie Anderson, Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan and Jack Nicklaus hold the record for the most U.S. Open victories, with four victories each.] Hale Irwin is the oldest winner of the U.S. Open at 45 years and 15 days in 1990. The youngest winner of the U.S. Open is John McDermott at 19 years, 10 months, 14 days in 1911

Goaltending

One of my biggest concerns about the Capitals heading into the postseason was this idea of a “goalie by committee” between Braden Holtby and Philipp Grubauer. That’s no longer an issue. After the Capitals lost two games.

Special teams

The Capitals have been excellent on the power play, and they lead active teams in scoring efficiency. The Lightning are second among remaining teams, but they don’t garner quite as many opportunities. Stamkos,

The young Philadelphia 76ers sure didn’t look the part in Game 1 vs. the Miami Heat. They took their homecourt advantage in stride as the East’s No. 3 seed and made clear to the No. 6 Heat that there won’t be anything setting back this hot team.

This is going to be an interesting style difference. The 76ers are a fast defensive-minded team, while the Heat are a more grind-it-out-style team. And the 76ers are leaning on only a couple veterans with postseason experience, while the Heat are almost entirely postseason-tested. This series could be decided by whoever can control the pace on the floor, and, of course, Joel Embiid’s status will also be a major factor.

If the 76ers can carry their momentum from the regular season into the playoffs, then they’re going to be a dangerous team in the playoffs. They finished the regular season on a 16 game win streak. Embiid, if healthy, and Simmons are one of the NBA’s most dynamic duos. They have the third-best defense and fourth-best net rating in the NBA. They’re an easy favorite.

The Heat haven’t always been consistent, but their depth gives them a lot of versatility. Miami can gain an advantage if they control the pace, forcing Philadelphia to play slow, and use their bench as an advantage. A lot of teams shorten up their rotation in the playoffs. The Heat doesn’t have to do that. They can adjust to whatever Philadelphia is running and counter that.

According to SportsLine data scientist Stephen Oh, the 76ers have a 14.3 percent chance to win the conference and a 3.8 percent chance to win it all. The Heat, on the other hand, has 1.2 percent chance to win the conference and a 0.5 percent chance to win the Finals. SportsLine will have game-by-game gambling advice for every playoff series here.

The Philadelphia 76ers, riding a historic 16-game win streak, host the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the 2018 NBA playoffs Saturday at 8 p.m. ET. The Sixers are seven-point favorites at home, while the over-under, or total points Vegas thinks will be scored, is 212, up two from the opening line.

Before picking either side, you need to read what SportsLine senior analyst Larry Hartstein — who has put together a sizzling run of his own — has to say.

The veteran NBA handicapper is on an epic hot streak when it comes to picking games involving the Heat, nailing 11 of 13 picks for a ridiculous 85 percent payout rate.

On Wednesday, the final day of the regular season, he nailed Miami (-4.5) against the Raptors, a 116-109 Heat victory. He also took Philly (-6.5) in a 130-95 trouncing of Milwaukee to secure the No. 3 seed.

Hartstein has examined every matchup, every player and every trend for Saturday’s showdown and locked in his pick.

He knows the 76ers have more momentum than any team entering the NBA playoffs — ever. The 76ers have won 16 straight, the longest win streak going into the playoffs in NBA history.

They’ll be without star center Joel Embiid for Game 1, but he missed the previous eight games, and Philly won them all. Ben Simmons has certainly been doing his part during this stretch, with five triple-doubles.

Miami, the No. 6 seed, has reason to be confident. The Heat split with the Sixers 2-2 during the regular season, each team winning its games at home. Oddly, Miami had a different leading scorer in each game — Kelly Olynyk, James Johnson, Dwyane Wade and Hassan Whiteside.

In Heat wins, they held Simmons to 10.5 ppg. In Sixers wins, Simmons averaged 19. Against the spread, Miami is just 2-5 in its past seven. Philly is 11-3 but has failed to cover in three of four. Hartstein says the line in this game isn’t where it should be. He’s sharing why, and who to back, at Sports Line.
