Tiger Woods plays the weekend in Washington, DC. It's been three years now that we have been able to say that and we are in a position to make this event a blast. This is almost certainly the last year of Quicken Loans National, a tour stop that Tiger and his folks organized and launched in 2007. Quicken takes their sponsorship dollars to a new event in the Detroit area and the "National" as DC – A stop will probably stop existing. Unless there is a late Ave Maria, it will not be on the upcoming schedule for 2019, which is due each day.
The failure to put this event on the map is a shame, and in many there are guilty directions. We will plunge into this polemic stuff when it's over, but right now we're here to enjoy the present.
The course was only supposed to run firmer, faster and harder, and many of these laps in the mid-60s were to evaporate. If Tiger can post a few laps under par (#LiveUnderPar baby), then we're in DC for fireworks on Sunday afternoon (timely reference).
The Tiger's starting time is at 12:25. on Saturday, most of his lap will fall into the TV broadcasting window. But first you can see his first few holes on Facebook, where the PGA Tour now covers the coverage of the weekend. If you're a PGA Tour Live subscriber, you will not be able to access it in this app and you'll need to watch Facebook. It's okay to use this app now, but I'm not a fan of being "exclusive" early on the weekend. It's annoying in my opinion, but that's what we're sticking to now.
