pending: Waste Management Phoenix Open

January 27-February 2, 2020
The Phoenix Open (originally the Arizona Open, now known as the Waste Management Phoenix Open) is held at the Tournament Players Club (TPC) of Scottsdale, Arizona. The Phoenix Open began 88 years ago in 1932 but was discontinued after the 1935 tournament. The rebirth of the Phoenix Open came in 1939 when Bob Goldwater, Sr. convinced fellow Thunderbirds, a prominent civic organization in Phoenix, to help run the event. The event's relaxed atmosphere, raucous by the standards of professional golf, has earned it the nickname “The Greatest Show on Grass” and makes it one of the most popular events on the PGA Tour calendar.
