Congo!

This week is by far the best field the Washington DC Tour stop has seen since the early 1980s. The field has 3 of the Big Four and 8 of the top 10 in the world. The list includes other favorites at next weeks US Open including Goosen, DiMarco, Garcia, Furyk, Appleby, Cink, Janzen, Leonard and Harrington. Congressional is a great, old traditional course that use to host the Kemper Open every year and has hosted a PGA, a US Open and a Senior Open. This week I think that a player who has won on this course before will win again. That means that I’m talking about either Els or Couples. Couples won the Kemper way back in 1983 when it was played at Congo. Els won the 1997 US Open. The course will be set up hard but not nearly like an Open. Couples played too good not to win last week. Els has probably played the worst of the Big Four, but I think the comfort of Congo will help him get his game in shape.
