The 2017 Waste Management Phoenix Open is rapidly approaching. I drive by the TPC Golf Course every day and it is amazing how fast the stands and luxury boxes are going up. It is called “The Greatest Show on Grass” for a reason. It draws the largest crowds on the entire PGA Tour. Last year’s attendance at the week-long event topped 553,000 people with a record-breaking 200,000 attending on Saturday alone.
The 16th hole is famous for its party atmosphere attracting fans from around the country and Canada. Last year’s attempt by the organizers to reduce drinking backfired in my opinion. Everyone had to wear a badge with the numbers 1-10 marked on it. Each time you bought a drink they would put a checkmark on your badge. Rather than reducing consumption, I think it became a competition between guys as to who could get to a higher number.
After watching the players, stay for the Bird’s Nest where bands keep the energy flowing well into the night.
