The U.S. Open visits Washington, D. C. this weekend. So what if Tiger Woods can't make it? ESPN has coverage Friday starting at 10 a.m., and NBC offers afternoon action between 3-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, NBC takes to the air at 2 p.m.

Play continues in the double-elimination tournament throughout the week - Virginia plays again Tuesday - with the two bracket winners advancing to the best-of-three final series.
