Waste Management Phoenix Open PGA Tour
The PGA Tour has a long and storied history
that dates all the way back to 1929, but it was not until 1968 after a dispute over the division of increased revenue due
to television contracts that it split from the PGA to deal only with tour players rather than additionally work as an organization
for club professionals. As part of the PGA Tour, the Waste Management Phoenix Open is one of the most important tournaments
in professional golf. The tournament made its debut in 1932 and in the decades since its founding has become an integral part
of the PGA Tour as well as one of the most popular and watched tournaments in all of golf. The 2014 tournament provided the
winner, Kevin Stadler, with a purse of $1,116,000 which helps the winner move up the standings considerably as the golfer
with the most winnings for the season. The purse increases each year and the 2015 tournament should provide significantly
more money to the golfer who comes out on top.
Sure it can be fun and relaxing to watch
professional golf on a nice flatscreen television back at home, but you don't really get a feel for the action and an understanding
of the elements the golfers are battling unless you are out on the links. Spending a lovely winter day outside in Arizona
walking a beautiful course and seeing the best golfers in the world do battle against one another is an experience you will
never forget and will likely have you never wanting to settle for watching from your couch ever again. As the days and holes
wear on, the tension builds and each stroke becomes more and more vital. The nervous tension in the air builds and this can
be felt both by the golfers swinging their clubs and the fans following them from hole to hole holding their breath with each
approach to the ball.
Four golfers have won the Waste Management Phoenix Open: Phil Mickelson,
Mark Calcavecchia, Gene Littler, and Arnold Palmer. There are also nine golfers who have won the tournament twice: J.B. Holmes,
Vijay Singh, Bob Gilder, Miller Barber, Johnny Miller, Lloyd Mangrum, Jimmy Demaret, Ben Hogan, and Byron Nelson. The Phoenix
Open was first held in 1932 but was discontinued in 1936 before being revitalized in 1939.
