Unless you've been living under a rock for the last week, you know that the Quicken Loans National marks the return of Tiger Woods to competitive golf.

While it's certainly a big story, don't let it fool you into forgetting that there are plenty of players looking to get into Open Championship form, just like the 14-time major champion.

Who makes the cut this week? Read on to see our favorites at Congressional.

After a rough stretch between February and May, Horschel has had a great start to the summer, stringing together three straight top-25 finishes. Despite some troubling results, Horschel still ranks 14th on Tour in driving accuracy and sixth in greens in regulation. If he can start to convert some more birdie attempts, another win could be just around the corner.

This will be Bradley's first career appearance at Congressional, but he's been on a solid run lately, including a tie for fourth at the U.S. Open. He's not the type to get intimidated by any challenge, so we should see some of his best this week. He's sticking with the belly putter again, so hopefully we'll see his work on the greens improving.

If Snedeker's tie for ninth at Pinehurst was a surprise, then following it up with a T-11 last week at the Travelers Championship might have been the start of a trend. Snedeker bookended his tournament with rounds of 65 and 64, and he has solid history at Congressional. As I said earlier this week, if he's healthy once again, Snedeker could be a big factor this summer.

Much like Snedeker, Day is finally recovering from some nagging injuries earlier this year, and his history at Congressional is almost identical as well. Day gets the nod here based on the fact that he looked so good before the injury, and he should put up another strong performance this week.

Spieth's debut at Congressional last season came just two weeks before his first career victory. This year, it could be the site of his first win of the season. With six top-20 finishes in his last seven starts, it looks like the breakthrough is inevitable. He's put a lot of energy into the majors, but with three weeks to go before Royal Liverpool, this is a perfect chance to come out on top.
