The PGA Tour is at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Va. this week for the Quicken Loans National, hosted by Tiger Woods.
Justin Rose returns as the defending champ having won at Congressional one year ago.
This week begins a grueling stretch for many of the world's top players, with a World Golf Championship coming up next week, followed by the PGA Championship and the PGA Tour Playoffs for the FedExCup.
Here are the players you'll want to keep an eye on this week.
5. Bill Haas
Best finish in 2014-15 season: Won the Humana Challenge
Reason to watch: For the first time this season, Haas has missed the cut in two consecutive starts. It's time to get out of the funk. Aside from playing to win tournaments this year, Haas is also trying to earn a spot on the U.S. Presidents Cup to which his father, Jay, is the captain. Jay would love to have Bill on the team, no doubt. He'd love it even more if he didn't have to use one of his two captain's pick. Bill is currently No. 16 in the standings. The top 10 at the conclusion of the Deutsche Bank Championship make the team on points. It's time for Bill to get going.
4. Jimmy Walker
Best finish in 2014-15 season: Won the Sony Open in Hawaii and the Valero Texas Open
Reason to watch: Over the last three years, few players have been as consistently good as Walker. This season alone, he has six top-10 finishes in 17 starts. Two of those were wins and two were runner-up finishes. Up until this week, Walker played just two events in all of June and July -- the U.S. Open (T58) and the Open Championship (T30). That tells me he's setting himself up to be well rested for a hectic end of the season push. I like it.
3. Sang-Moon Bae
Best finish in 2014-15 season: Won the Frys.com Open
Reason to watch: As we learned last week, this will be Bae's final season on the PGA Tour before reporting back to his home country of South Korea for mandatory military service. This is something that has been weighing on Bae for a long time. And, leading up to the decision, you'd have to think it had an impact on his play. Dating back to the Wells Fargo Championship in the middle of May, Bae has made seven starts. Four of those have been missed cuts and his best finish in that stretch was a T49 at the Memorial. Now that Bae knows for certain what his future holds back home -- and though he may not like it -- I think he'll bring a peace of mind to the course and make the best of what's left this season.
2. Rickie Fowler
Best finish in 2014-15 season: Won the Players Championship
Reason to watch: Fowler is a player to watch now whenever and wherever (see the Scottish Open) he tees it up. If his name is on the tee sheet, he's a favorite. It's still hard to believe he's only a two-time winner on the PGA Tour. Like many of the game's elite players, Fowler has had somewhat of a limited May-July schedule as he gears up for the busy weeks ahead. I expect him to start that push with a great finish this week.
1. Justin Rose
Best finish in 2014-15 season: Won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans
Reason to watch: Rose is the defending champion of this tournament. Granted, it's at a different venue this year, but Rose has won the event twice already at two different venues. Rose, who turns 35 on Thursday, has been playing some fantastic golf of late, including a playoff loss at the Memorial and a T6 in the Open Championship. Surprisingly, Rose's lone multiple-win PGA Tour season was in 2010. It feels like he's due for another one of those.
5. Brooks Koepka -- T18
4. Jim Furyk -- 4th
3. Matt Kuchar -- T7
2. Bubba Watson -- 2nd
1. Jason Day -- Won
