Tiger Woods called it a good fit, as far as the previous and succeeding tournaments.
"It's close to D.C., and a lot of guys were driving here from D.C.," Woods said. "On top of that, we get a week off after this to get ready for the British [Open]. Some guys may go over there and play the week before the British. At least we have that option, and that's one of the reasons the field is so strong here."
Pazder may put in a good word for the resort in Justice's almost-certain bid for the 2017 President's Cup. The biennial tournament pits a U.S. team against an international team (not including Europeans), and will be held at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio, in 2013.
Justice, always the big thinker, wouldn't mind bidding for the U.S. Open, though that is a very tough nut to crack.
"Andy has guaranteed both," Justice joked. "2017 for the President's Cup and the U.S. Open right behind that."
Pazder shot back: "Thank God he didn't ask for the Masters."
