Tiger's event moves to Philly area in 2010-11
NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. (AP) Tiger Woods' AT&T National event will be coming to Aronimink Golf Club in suburban Philadelphia in 2010 and 2011.
The club members accepted a proposal Wednesday night that came after nearly a year of discussions between Aronimink board members and officials from the tournament and the Tiger Woods Foundation, which benefits from the event.
The tournament will be played at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., in 2009. The greens there are to be renovated in 2010 and the U.S. Open will be played there in 2011.
The 2010 event, which begins June 28, represents the first professional golf in the Philadelphia area since the Senior PGA Championship was played at Aronimink in 2003.
The club was the site of the 1962 PGA Championship won by Gary Player and host to the 2003 Senior PGA won by John Jacobs. It also hosted the U.S. Amateur in 1977 and the U.S. Junior Amateur in 1997.
