The 2012 AT&T National will begin play this week from Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland, and with the passage of Friday's deadline to withdraw the field has been set for this year's tournament. Tiger Woods, the No. 4-ranked player in the world, is the event host and will participate, as will Nick Watney, the defending champion.
Other notable participants include Hunter Mahan, the No. 10-ranked player in the world, Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott, Vijay Singh and Jim Furyk. Beau Hossler, the 17-year-old high schooler who took last week's U.S. Open by storm, will also tee off at Congressional this week.
The complete field can be found at the AT&T National page on PGATour.com.
The tournament begins on Thursday, June 28 from Congressional C.C., the host of last year's U.S. Open Championship. The event, hosted by Woods, benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation.
