Waste Management Phoenix Open: A beginner's guide

The Phoenix Open always boasts one of the most party-like atmospheres on Tour, and Rahm appreciates the change of pace.

'Last week was a little hiccup, just made a few too many mistakes.

Feeling the energy Mickelson, who also played college golf in Arizona and is a three-time Phoenix Open victor, is another fan favorite at the always raucous tournament.

Famed for the par 3 16 hole, framed by hollering spectators on all sides, this is not your average tournament - an astonishing 655,434 fans made their way through the turnstiles past year! "You need to play really good golf", Rahm said.

"It would just kind of be a long time coming in a way". I think he will get back to form in Arizona.

Fowler is wearing a pin on his hat with a picture of Griffin Connell, the area boy he befriended at the event who died last week at age 7. Connell was born with a rare airway disorder.

"The putter was hot the first nine holes", Haas, a six-times PGA Tour victor, told reporters after a round that included a 30-foot birdie at the second hole, his 11th.

Fowler, whose history of strong showings in Phoenix include a runner-up finish to Hunter Mahan in 2010 and a playoff loss to Matsuyama in 2016, couldn't maintain early his torrid pace on the back nine, following a birdie at the 10th with a bogey at 11.

"I did some treatment last night, but the pain was still there this morning when I practiced", Matsuyama said. His 65 included five birdies in his last eight holes, and he made a lot of them look easy.

If you've never been to the Phoenix Open, let's just say it's unlike any other PGA Tour event you'll ever experience.

The 17th hole at the Tournament Players Club also included a strip show.

After two weeks in the desert, the European Tour makes its way to Malaysia for the Maybank Championship. DeChambeau, who won the John Deere Classic last season, shot 68 Saturday to move to 13 under and is ranked fifth in strokes gained: tee-to-green this week. "We have given ourselves some pretty good chances".
