WM Phoenix Open: Schedule, course, players, how to watch, and more

The WM Phoenix Open, held at TPC Scottsdale, is part of the PGA Tour’s West Coast Swing and is one of the most anticipated tournaments on the calendar.

It has been played on the same weekend as the NFL Championship game since 1973 and is nicknamed ‘The Greatest Show on Grass’.

The Phoenix Open is often the best-attended event in golf, with around half a million spectators creating a raucous atmosphere in Scottsdale, Arizona.

WM Phoenix Open 2024 schedule

The Phoenix Open will run from Thursday, February 8 to Sunday, February 11, with the traditional midway cut being made that will see the top-65 making it to the weekend.

WM Phoenix Open course

The Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale has been host of the Phoenix Open since 1987, when Paul Azinger held off Hal Sutton by a stroke.

It is a par-71 course measuring 7,261 yards that boasts 11 par-fours, three par-fives and four par-threes.

The most famous hole is the par-3 16th hole, nicknamed ‘The Coliseum’ as it is enclosed by a temporary 20,000-seat grandstand.

Measuring 162 yards, the distance isn’t the problem here, it is whether the players can handle the raucous atmosphere. Hit the green and the cheers will follow, but miss the putting surface and a chorus of boos will ring out.

WM Phoenix Open 2024 players

World number one Scottie Scheffler has won this event the last two years and is +500 to complete the three-peat, which would make him just the second player since Arnold Palmer in 1963 to lift the trophy three times in a row.

Australian Min Woo Lee, England’s Matt Fitzpatrick, South Korean Tom Kim and American J.T. Poston are all priced at +3300.

WM Phoenix Open history

Originally known as the Arizona Open, the tournament debuted back in 1932 and was won by Ralph Guldahl.

The event has been renamed several times over the years, ranging from the Phoenix Open, Ben Hogan Open, Phoenix Open Invitational and FBR Open amongst others.

It has been branded as the WM Phoenix Open since 2022 and was handed Signature Event status in 2023, providing a $20 million prize purse.

That is not the case for the 2024 edition, which has lost that tag this season, but there is still a stellar field that will be battling it out for glory.

The Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale, Arizona has been the host since 1987 and both Mark Calcavecchia (2001) and Phil Mickelson (2013) hold the tournament record aggregate score of 256, -28.

A total of 11 golfers have made a hole-in-hole at the par-3 16th hole, with Sam Ryder and Carlos Ortiz being the most recent to do so in 2022.
