“T‑Dub will be hidden throughout the DMV area,” Antolini said. “His whereabouts will be posted on our media channel, the official Twitter handle @QLNational, and those who find T‑Dub, snap a picture and tag us, will win Quicken Loans National tickets, autographed memorabilia and even get a chance to take a photo with this year’s champion at the 18th green trophy presentation.”

“You can set it up in ways that you can make a lot of birdies,” Woods said. “A lot of balls can funnel into the flags, or you can set it up like they did in the singles where no one makes birdies, and it’s going to be quite a test.”
