Fowler, Thomas Square Off in D.C.

The march towards the third major championship of the season begins in earnest this week outside of the nation’s capital at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm. The Quicken Loans National returns to the site of the old Kemper Open following a $32 million renovation to the property and you can see how the world’s best play on PGA TOUR LIVE, which will have coverage beginning early Thursday morning.

Eleven of the top-25 in the FedEx Cup standings will tee it up in Bethesda, Maryland this week headlined by Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed, Kevin Chappell and Si Woo Kim, all of whom are ranked in the top-30 in the world. Additionally, all five of the top-ranked players will be shown during PGA TOUR LIVE‘s coverage window over the first two days of the event.

Five past champions of the event are in the field this week and seven players who have won more than five times on Tour will look to add to their tallies at Avenel Farm.


The first two days of the Quicken Loans will be live streamed on PGA TOUR LIVE beginning at 7:00 a.m. EST, giving subscribers just shy of 12 hours of live golf that otherwise would go unseen.
