2014 Phoenix Open in pictures

The Waste Management Phoenix Open golf tournament is unlike any other spot on the PGA tour. Played Super Bowl week each year, the tournament drew a PGA tour record 563,008 patrons this year (compared to 82,529 for the Super Bowl on Sunday), and is the craziest tournament on the tour. The focal point of the tournament is the par-3 16th, where they erect a stadium around the hole, and patrons actively boo the golfers that miss the green with their tee shots. For the avid golfer, this tournament can be a little shocking, but if golf wants to attract more people to the sport, they may look to loosen up and have more tournaments like this to change people’s perception of golf as a stuffy sport for old men.
