Tiger's event may head to Philadelphia

Tiger Woods may be out of the game right now, but his influence is still being felt on the PGA Tour.

At this point, it appears that there is a relatively high chance that a PGA Tour event will return to Pennsylvania for the first time since the 2006 84 LUMBER Classic.

The AT&T National, which has been played 4th of July weekend during its first two years of competition, will be forced to move during the 2010 and 2011 season. Tiger's own tournament, of course, will not be able to proceed at Congressional Country Club in Washington, D.C. while the course undergoes renovation while preparing to host the USGA's 2011 U.S. Open.

According to the Associated Press, "Members at Aronimink Golf Club in suburban Philadelphia are to vote Oct. 15 on whether to accept a proposal to host Woods’ AT&T National for two years, in 2010 and 2011."

If the club chooses to allow the event to use its course, Aronimink Golf Club will likely be renovated to add distance to the par 70, 7,100 yard design.
