The Phoenix Open Golf Tournament attracts nearly 500,000 fans each and every year here in Arizona. Often referred to as “The Greatest Show on Grass,” The Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale is PGA’s most popular event hands down.
Once known as The Phoenix Open as well as The FBR Open, this Phoenix golf event tournament has been hosted by TPC Scottsdale Stadium Course ever since 1987. People just seem to love this Phoenix golf tournament!
Is the popularity of the PHX Open due in part because of the almost perfect weather that Arizona is able to provide this time of year? Or is it because of the famous 16th hole, “The Coliseum,” which takes honors of being the absolute loudest hole in golf?
