A look back at the 2013 Quicken Loans National

Bill Haas entered the final round of the Quicken Loans National in a four-way tie with Robert Castro, Andres Romero and James Driscoll. Thanks in part to birdies on Nos. 8, 9 and 10, Haas carded a 5-under 66 for a 3-stroke win over Roberto Castro. The victory was cemented with a wedge from 84 yards to 9  inches on the par-5 16th hole, with the birdie giving him a comfortable three-stroke cushion with two holes to play.
