Annually sporting the largest crowds on the PGA TOUR, the Waste Management Phoenix Open has gained legendary status for being unlike any other golf tournament. Not only is it one of the fifth oldest events on the PGA TOUR schedule, it also features one of the most unique holes on TOUR – the famous 16th (pictured above). The 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale is normally a routine 162-yard, par-3, but come tournament week the hole is completely transformed into a stadium with enough room for 15,000 screaming fans. It’s a great opportunity for players and fans to interact.

Combine that with 132 of the top golfers on the PGA TOUR including Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Phil Mickelson and Brandt Snedeker to name a few and it’s easy to see why this event has grown to where it is today.

And, when the sun sets at TPC Scottsdale the party heats up at the Coors Light Birds Nest. The Birds Nest features new artists every year. While the music each night may be different, one thing still remains the same – The Coors Light Birds Nest is the place to be in Scottsdale during the Waste Management Phoenix Open!
