Defending champion Justin Rose and Ricky Fowler will join former winners K.J. Choi, Bill Haas and Nick Watney, as well as tournament host Tiger Woods, in the field for the Quicken Loans National as it moves to Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia this weekend.

Rose, ranked No. 5 through the British Open, and Fowler, one spot behind him, are the only two players in the top 10 in the Official World Gold Ranking who are slated to participate in the event.

Also scheduled to play are Jimmy Walker, who won the Sony Open and Valero Texas Open earlier this year, and Billy Hurley III, the Leesburg, Virginia native and Navy graduate. Stewart Cink, Angel Cabrera, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, J.J. Henry and Vijay Singh were also included in the preliminary field of 120 players.

The event, typically held in mid-June, moved to a later date this year because of the timing of the U.S. Open and the British Open on the PGA Tour schedule.

Previously known as the AT&T National, the event also switched venues, moving after it was held at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda for six of its first eight years.

Rose, who also won the event in 2010, shot a 4-under-par 280 and won a playoff over Shawn Stefani to take home the title a year ago.
