Excitement Swings into Action: The WM Phoenix Open 2024 Tees Off!
Known as "The Greatest Show on Grass," The WM Phoenix Open held at TPC Scottsdale truly lives up to its reputation. Not only does it welcome the top players in golf, but it also stands as the PGA TOUR’s most attended event, attracting almost 500,000 enthusiastic spectators every year. Mark your calendars for Tournament Week: February 5 – February 11, 2024!
As one of the first events on the PGA TOUR calendar, The WM Phoenix Open kicks off the year with a bang. Unlike any other tournament in the world, spectators become central to the event – helping to transform the famous 16th hole into “The Coliseum” – and the loudest hole in golf.
Defending Champion Scottie Scheffler
The best golf players in the world come to TPC Scottsdale for a tournament that is broadcast worldwide. Some of the big names in attendance will include defending champion Scottie Scheffler, Rory Mcllroy, Xander Schauffele, Sam Burns, and many more.
Michael Phelps, Albert Pujols, Emmit Smith
Celeb attendees are certainly not limited to the tournament's Pro-Am (Feb. 7), but it is one of the hottest places to see and be seen. Each year, a wide variety of current and former athletes are joined by other celebrities, rock stars, coaches, community leaders competing alongside the pros for the coveted win. This is the perfect opportunity to get in on the action and up-close and personal to stars. In years past, players have included Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Phelps, Dierks Bentley, Darius Rucker, John Elway, Emmitt Smith, Shane Doan, Reggie Bush, and a host of others.
For four nights every year, the hottest nightclub in Scottsdale is located inside a tent erected in north Scottsdale. It is, of course, the Coors Light Birds Nest. With great music, beautiful patrons, and enthusiastic partying, the Birds Nest has earned near-legendary status on the PGA TOUR. It offers a show all its own and is totally unlike anything else associated with professional golf. This year's sold-out headliners included HARDY and Bailey Zimmerman (Feb. 7), Dierks Bentley with special guests Mitchell Tenpenny and Meghan Parker (Feb. 8), and Duran Duran (Feb. 9). Headline acts will take the stage at 8:30 p.m.
The tournament begins on February 5th, but the biggest events will be happening from the 9th through the 11th. You can see the full event calendar here.
This year marks the 91st Anniversary of the creation of the Phoenix Open Tournament, so surely the Thunderbirds have big plans in store. You can buy your tickets for the Open by clicking here. First Responders, Military Members, and Veterans get in for free on the first day!
