Waste Management Phoenix Open history, results and past winners



The Waste Management Phoenix Open is the PGA Tour's Arizona event on the schedule. The event is the loudest part of the West Coast Swing, which runs through California and Arizona.

The Waste Management Phoenix Open became a PGA Tour event in 1932, known then as the Arizona Open. It originally wasn't played at TPC Scottsdale, which took over as event host in 1987. Like many older PGA Tour events, it evolved from a state open championship.

In its time with TPC Scottsdale as host and the Thunderbirds presenting the event, the tournament has become the loudest, best-attended event on the PGA Tour schedule.

In recent memory, the tournament has concluded on Super Bowl Sunday, giving sports fans an appetizer for the largest sporting event in the United States.

Arnold Palmer, Gene Littler, Mark Calcavecchia and Phil Mickelson are all tied with the most wins in this event's history, with three each.
