Phoenix Open sets new fan attendance record for the third straight year
Well more than half a million fans attended one of golf's most fun events each year
The Waste Management Phoenix Open is quite proud of its attendance record, and it should be.
A new Round 3 record for most fans was set in 2017 when 204,906 rolled through the turnstiles into one of the wildest parties in golf. This broke the single-day record of 201,003 which was set last year.
Overall attendance soared this time around as well as 655,434 total fans attended the fun this week at TPC Scottsdale. That destroys the old mark of 618,365, which was also set last year.
"I love it," said Fowler of the insanity. "You know, it's a lot of fun. You hear a lot of stuff throughout the course, and it's louder throughout the rest of the course than other tournaments. Once you get to 16, it's a completely different story."
This is true.
Here is a look at the five most-attended Phoenix Opens ever.
