Tee Times & History At Quicken Loans National

Pat Perez is in action at Robert Trent Jones this week for the Quicken Loans National. Perez is coming off a T18 finish at last week’s RBC Canadian Open and is currently ranked 53rd in the FedExCup standings.

Perez has played the National every year since its inception in 2007; missing the cut twice in eight tries—most-recently in 2014. His best finish was T3 (2007) and outside that has finished T12 (2008), T29 (2012), T38 (2011), T62 (2010) and 76 (2013).

Those events took place at Congressional Country Club—with RTJ hosting the event moving forward in odd-numbered years. The National usually takes place in early July but was moved due to one fewer week this year between the U.S. Open and The Open. 

Tee times have been set, with Perez getting the late/early draw; going off No. 1 at 12:00 p.m. ET on Thursday and No. 10 at 7:15 a.m. ET on Friday. He’s paired with Cameron Tringale and William McGirt both days.

Perez is ranked 13th in this week’s “Power Rankings” by PGATour.com’s Rob Bolton, with Bolton stating: “Late entry at Glen Abbey yielded a T18, his ninth top 25 of 2015. Inside the top 45 in fairways hit, GIR and strokes gained: putting. T7 in par-4 scoring.”

Regarding this week’s track, Robert Trent Jones Golf Club measures 7,385 yards and is a par 71.

According to PGATour.com’s breakdown: “Sculpted along the shores of Virginia’s Lake Manassas, RTJ got its beginnings when the renowned architect discovered the land during an aerial site survey for another project. Jones loved the terrain so much that he bought the acreage himself and commenced on designing a layout that would attract a world-class membership. RTJ opened in 1991 and became the early home of the new Presidents Cup, playing host to the U.S.-vs.-International team matches four times between 1994 and 2005.”

This week’s charity is The Tiger Woods Foundation, with proceeds earmarked for two Tiger Woods Learning Center campuses in Washington, D.C. along with 25 Tiger Woods scholars who hail from the D.C. area. 

Thursday and Friday TV coverage will take place 2:30-6:30 p.m. ET on Golf Channel. Weekend coverage is on Golf Channel from 1:00-2:30 p.m. ET and shifts to CBS from 3:00-6:00 p.m. ET.
