| ||Anthony Kim won last year`s AT&T National for his second victory of a
breakout 2009 season. Kim posted four rounds in the 60s and finished at
12-under 268 to break the tournament scoring record by three shots set by
K.J. Choi in the first year of the event in 2007. Tiger Woods was home
recovering from left knee surgery last year and unavailable to present Kim
with the trophy. The tournament host did, however, telephone Kim, who became
the first American under 25 to win twice in one PGA Tour season since Woods.
This year, Woods will headline the 119-player field, hoping to improve upon
his sixth-place finish in 2007. Among the other top players scheduled to tee
off at Congressional Country Club this week are U.S. Open champion Lucas
Glover, Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk, Paul Casey, Sean O`Hair and Justin Rose.
Aronimink Golf Club will host the tournament in 2010 and 2011 as
Congressional gears up to host the `11 U.S. Open. Golf Channel will have
three hours of coverage for the first two rounds beginning at 3 p.m. (et)
both days. CBS will begin its coverage at the same time both weekend days.
Next week is the John Deere Classic, which was won by Kenny Perry last year.
