Latest Congressional Country Club Items
Erik Compton can't shake this darn cough. Three weeks have passed, and he's still hacking. Standing on the seventh tee of Congressional Country Club's Blue Course during Monday's Pro-Am at the AT&T National, you could hear the stuff in Compton's lungs gurgle. Later, on the 13th green, he needed to rest. He crossed his legs and sat down in the first cut while others in his group putted out.
Bo Van Pelt's only victory in 309 PGA Tour events was almost three years ago on the same weekend as the 138th Open Championship. His moment of glory did not occur at Turnberry in Scotland, though. And, as a matter of fact, he still is the defending champion of the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee. The tournament shut down operation after he won it.
Tiger Woods was back Thursday afternoon, playing at Congressional Country Club for the first time in three years. He was back in March, winning an official PGA Tour event for the first time in 932 days. He also was back earlier this month, becoming a multiple-winner on the Tour for the first time since 2009.

Lee Westwood has 35 official wins around the globe and is coming off a five-stroke victory Saturday at the Nordea Masters in Sweden.
Tiger Woods insists he is close to contending on a weekly basis, even if recent results suggest otherwise.
The strong wind blowing Tuesday across Royal St. George's was just another sign that the moonscape masquerading as a golf course on the English coast would offer a vastly different test than the one Rory McIlroy solved so easily at the U.S. Open.
