Tiger Woods is back. Have you heard the news? Tiger Woods is back and he's playing in the Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club in Maryland.

He is, of course, the host of the Quicken Loans National but he's also very familiar with the digs there -- he's won at Congressional twice with mild success in other appearances.

Here's a look:

Woods missed out on the 2008 AT&T National because of knee surgery and in 2013 because of a bum elbow after the US Open. In 2010 and 2011 the tournament was moved because Congressional hosted the 2011 US Open (which Woods also missed).

Though the sample size is small and I don't expect a ton out of a still-rusty Tiger this week, it's clearly a good place for him to return as he has familiarity with the track and has never finished outside the top 20.

Either way, it should be an electrifying week.
