2018 Phoenix Open

The Waste Management Phoenix Open Presented by The Ak-Chin Indian Community is coming back to TPC Scottsdale January 29-February 4 for the 83rd edition of The People’s Open.

2018 Phoenix Open - Phil Mickelson

Phil Mickelson

Last year’s tournament shattered attendance records on Wednesday (77,906), Friday (169,004) and Saturday (204,906), pushing the weeklong attendance mark to 655,434 enthusiastic fans. A sea of golf buffs had a lot to be excited about, as Hideki Matsuyama held off Webb Simpson in a grueling and hard-fought four-hole playoff. It was Matsuyama’s second straight title at the WM Phoenix Open, and the second time he did it in sudden-death playoff fashion.

2017 Phoenix Open - Matsuyama Returns to Defend Title

Matsuyama is expected to return to defend his title at the 2017 Phoenix Open.

Matsuyama is expected to return to defend his title once again and complete the three-peat, but he will be tested by what is traditionally one of the strongest fields on TOUR. Beloved former Sun Devil and three-time WM Phoenix Open winner Phil Mickelson will look to make his 30th consecutive start at TPC Scottsdale, along with an outstanding group of PGA TOUR stars such as 2017 PGA TOUR Player of the Year Justin Thomas, two-time Major winner Bubba Watson, two-time runner up Rickie Fowler and a host of some of the world’s top players.

Tournament play begins Thursday, Feb. 1, but there’s no shortage of entertainment earlier in the week. The Kadima.Ventures Pro-Am kicks off the festivities, followed by the R.S. Hoyt Jr. Family Foundation Dream Day and San Tan Ford Special Olympics Open on Tuesday. The ever-popular Annexus Pro-Am begins on Wednesday, showcasing a star-studded lineup of local entertainers, celebrities, rock stars and professional athletes teamed up with their favorite PGA TOUR pros. After Wednesday’s Pro-Am, the Phoenix Suns Charities Shot at Glory pits the Pro-Am competitors and other celebrities in a closest-to-the-pin contest for a chance at $1 million for a charity of their choice.
