Beginning his season without a single top-25 finish in his first ten events, Lingmerth has gone on a run of five in his last seven events dating back to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. A Saturday 65 at the Travelers Championship had Lingmerth ready to make it six, but a one-over round of 73 on Sunday sent him into a nine-way tie for 26th.
Still, all of this is a sign that Lingmerth can sleep happy, knowing full well that he'll be able to stretch this run for at least another week.
Lingmerth may also be able to pull on some history this week, as he finished third in the 2015 Quicken Loans National. It was a different golf course, sure, but the shorter nature of TPC Potomac should play right into Lingmerthâ€™s strengths.

Since winning the Honda Classic in February, Rickie Fowler has been playing mostly spectacular golf. He's made seven cuts in the ensuing nine events, with six top-25 finishes. Three of those have translated into the top-five, including his last start at the U.S. Open. Despite walking away from Erin Hills still in search of his first major, Fowler will remain a top contender nearly every time he tees it up.
Like most of the players in this week's field, this will be Fowler's first look at TPC Potomac. However, with the way Fowler's game has grown over the past several years, that likely won't hinder him at all. Fowler currently ranks 19th in driving accuracy, 32nd in greens in regulation, and seventh in strokes gained: putting. It's a perfect combination that has Fowler leading the Tour in adjusted scoring.
