It only took a glimpse of the gallery following Tiger Woods in Saturday's third round of the AT&T National to figure out that something was amiss at Congressional Country Club. There were about 50 people -- media included -- watching a player who normally attracts thousands. "I told Tiger that it was a Bo Van Pelt crowd, so I was used to that," Van Pelt joked after the round. "I was very comfortable with 10 or 15 people watching me play golf. " Weather permitting, it should be much different for Sunday's final round.

This week's AT&T National remains sponsored by AT&T. Tournament proceeds continue to benefit the Tiger Woods Foundation. Woods, though, no longer serves as tournament host. Nor does the AT&T logo adorn his golf bag anymore. It all makes for a bit of an awkward setup. Sort of like a wedding feast that dictates your recently divorced parents — and their new flings — sit next to each other at the table. Prudence calls for the high road; voyeurism secretly hopes for a little flare-up.

No round of professional golf can be played on the Blue Course at Congressional Country Club without, it seems, comparing it to the events of two years ago, to the 111th U.S. Open in which Rory McIlroy appeared to make a mockery of the place. So here came Thursday, the first round of the AT&T National, just two weeks removed from the most recent U.S. Open, held at Merion Golf Club. The difference between a major and a regular PGA Tour event can be found in the length of the rough, the speed of the greens, the distance from tee to flag, the tension in the players' necks.

This week's AT&T National will be Erik Compton's 29th start on the PGA Tour, on which his unique story — twice a heart-transplant recipient — has made him a frequent recipient of sponsor's exemptions over the last decade. There's a different outlook, though, as he arrives at Aronimink Golf Club. A PGA Tour card no longer is the goal; it's the next chapter. "It's just a lifelong dream," said Compton, 31, whose win at last week's Mexico Open all but assures him a card as one of the Nationwide Tour's top 25 in earnings.

Players spent the week at the AT&T National worrying over the course's difficulty. Then came Saturday. Seven players tied or broke the course record, defying Aronimink Golf Club's inherent difficulty. The most stunning round came from Nick Watney, who shot an 8-under-par 27 on the back nine on his way to a course-record 62 that earned him a spot in today's final group with Rickie Fowler and K.J. Choi. After Choi made a 26-foot putt on No. 18 for the day's 280th birdie, tournament officials turned their attention to a firmer setup today that might rein in the scoring.

In the old days, Tiger Woods might have won the AT&T National with ease. In the old days, Woods might not have needed his closest competitor to bogey the last three holes at Congressional Country Club. In the old days, Woods might not have stopped to acknowledge the two military officers waiting his arrival at the 18th tee before he made his final putt. In the old days, Woods might not have acknowledged the crowd - twice - and high-fived some volunteers en route to the scoring tent.

Billy Hurley III came into the AT&T National at Congressional Country Club having missed the cut in six of his previous seven PGA Tour events. A week playing before friends and family proved to be the perfect panacea for the former Navy standout. The 30-year-old tour rookie, who put off his professional career while finishing his five-year military commitment, had his best tournament since getting his playing card last fall. Hurley finished tied for fourth at 4-under par 280 after a 1-over par 72 Sunday.

It has taken three years, a stretch of time when their career arcs crisscrossed, when their successes and failures were dissected like frogs in a high school biology class, when they seemed to share little except the same swing coach. Such is the way things have gone for Hunter Mahan and Tiger Woods since the final round of the 2009 AT&T National. The last time the tournament was held here at Congressional Country Club, Woods appeared invincible, recovered from a serious knee injury and in the midst of another dominating season.
