Club: Congressional Country Club
Location: Bethesda, Maryland
Date: June 24-30, 2013
Online Golf Betting: The AT&T National is a professional golf tournament held in the Washington D.C. area during the Fourth of July weekend. The PGA Tour event is hosted by Tiger Woods and benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation. The first AT&T National was held July 5th - 8th, 2007, at the Blue Course of the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland.
The AT&T National returned to Congressional in 2008 and 2009 and has been held midway between the U.S. Open and the British Open to ensure a strong field of competitors.
Congressional originally agreed to host the AT&T National for the first two years, but after opting out of hosting the 2009 U.S. Amateur tournament agreed to host the event again in 2009 as well.
How to bet on AT&T National
The odds of a golfer to win the AT&T National will generally look something like:
- Tiger Woods + 150
- Phil Mickelson + 250
- Steve Stricker + 300
- Jeff Overton + 700
- Ernie Els + 700
- Field + 600
These betting odds will be lower when betting on a golfer to finish in the top three, as the sportsbook must pay off three different winning bets.
A player would have to bet $10 to win $150 that Tiger Woods will win the AT&T National, while the bettor wagering on Jeff Overton stands to win $70 on their $10 wager.
Another commonly placed bet in PGA golf is head-to-head finish between two players. With this bet, a player doesn't really care what place the golfer finishes in, as long as the golfer wagered on finishes higher than the other golfer.
A head-to-head betting line for the AT&T National will look something like:
- Tiger Woods - 190 Steve Stricker + 150
In this bet, players wagering on Woods to finish higher than Stricker will be asked to risk $19 to win $10, while bettors believing that Stricker will finish higher than Woods will bet $10 to win $15.
Those familiar with sports betting will have no trouble making the transition to PGA golf wagering, while those new to the world of sports betting should be able to pick up the concepts of PGA golf betting without to much trouble.
2012 AT&T National Winner - Tiger Woods seals win at AT&T National
Congressional reopened its gates Sunday to thousands of spectators who got what they expected in the AT&T National — another win by Tiger Woods. Only this win didn’t follow a typical script.
Caught in a tense duel with Bo Van Pelt on another sweltering day, it looked as though Woods blinked first until Van Pelt matched him with mistakes of his own. Woods closed with a 2-under 69 and won by two shots when Van Pelt finished with his third straight bogey and had to settle for a 71.
Woods won for the third time this year, the most of anyone on the PGA Tour, and it was the 74th win of his career. That moved him past Jack Nicklaus into second place on the tour list, eight short of Sam Snead.
Woods, who finished at 8-under 276, moved to the top of the PGA Tour money list and the FedEx Cup standings for the first time since September 2009.
He effectively clinched the win with a 9-iron down the hill toward the peninsula green on the 18th, a shot so pure that Woods started walking and twirled the club moments after he made contact.
2011 AT&T National Winner - Watney flawless to win by 2 shots at Aronimink
The two highest ranked players in the World Rankings to show up at Aronimink Golf Club this week wound up battling it out for the 2011 AT&T National crown Sunday.
Even after K.J. Choi finally pulled even with four holes to play, frontrunner Nick Watney never flinched, and never gave Choi — or any of his pursuers, for that matter — even a slight opening.
One day after establishing the course record in spectacular fashion, Watney followed up with a scintillating, bogey-free 4-under-par 66 to edge Choi by two strokes and capture his second PGA Tour win of the season and fourth of his career.
His winning score of 13-under 267 was two strokes better than Justin Rose’s score a year ago.
Justin Rose lifted his profile like a bottle rocket shooting skyward, winning the AT&T National for his second title in three events.
"Playing under this sort of pressure when you're playing well is like exciting," Rose said. "It's butterflies and it's a buzz."
It was the 29-year-old Englishman’s second victory in America in the space of four weeks and he is playing the best golf in the world right now.
