Waste Management Phoenix Open – Through February 3rd

Annually sporting the largest crowds on the PGA Tour, the Waste Management Phoenix Open has gained legendary status on Tour for being unlike any other golf tournament. It starts with the unbelievable golf played by the likes of Rickie Fowler, Brandt Snedeker, Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson, and Keegan Bradley on the beautiful TPC Scottsdale and ends with the biggest galleries on Tour. If you are visiting for the first time, hole 16 is a must-see. With stadium seating and crowds exceeding 16,000, it makes the fan experience at this hole more comparable to a Phoenix Suns game than a traditional PGA Tournament. Visit their website for more information including a list of events and concerts throughout the week.
