Tee It Up Preview - Waste Management Phoenix Open

Waste Management Open

This week the PGA Tour heads to Arizona for the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Originally the event was known as the Arizona Open, in 2003 it became known as the FBR Open (Friedman Billings Ramsey). Since 2010 Waste Management has been the title sponsor. The event began in 1932 but was discontinued in 1935, the event was reborn in 1939. The event is currently hosted at TPC Scottsdale – Stadium Course, previous hosts were Phoenix Country Club and the Arizona Country Club.

The event is known for its less than a traditional approach to crowd noise. The 16th hole par 3 “The Coliseum” is enclosed by grandstands that hold 20,000 fans. One unique feature of the 16th hole is that if a player misses the green they will be boo’d but if they hit the green then the fans go wild with cheering. In 2013 the PGA Tour banned the practice of caddy racing due to concern over injuries.
