Waste Management Phoenix Open: How to watch, streaming, preview, tee times, and more

The PGA Tour returns to TPC Scottsdale for the Waste Management Phoenix Open, one of the world’s most popular and well-attended golf events.

The event is most famous for its setup at the par-3 16th hole, where a temporary stadium holding 20,000 people cheer on the action. Plenty of alcoholic beverages are consumed there, too, thus creating an environment that resembles many college sporting events.

Dubbed “The People’s Open,” the WM Phoenix Open never disappoints as plenty of memories are made every year. We ranked the top 5 most memorable moments in Phoenix Open history, some of which will truly make your heart melt.

This year, five of the top 10 players in the Official World Golf Rankings are in the field, including world number one Scottie Scheffler, who won this event in both 2022 and 2023.

Four U.S. Ryder Cup team members—Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, and Sam Burns—are also playing, as are Luke Donald and Zach Johnson, the two captains.

The 2024 edition of the WM Phoenix Open will feature many other major champions: Hideki Matsuyama, Adam Scott, Shane Lowry, Lucas Glover, and Gary Woodland.

But unfortunately, both Viktor Hovland and Xander Schauffele withdrew on Monday.
