Waste Management Phoenix Open

THE GREATEST SHOW ON GRASS | FEBRUARY 7 – FEBRUARY 13 | 2022

The Waste Management Phoenix Open is one of the premier yearly winter events in Arizona.

The Phoenix Open (known as the Waste Management Phoenix Open for title sponsorship reasons) is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour, held in late January/early February at the Tournament Players Club (TPC) of Scottsdale, Arizona.

Thanks to one of the most fan-friendly tournament venues on the PGA TOUR, the Waste Management Phoenix Open attracts the largest galleries and creates an atmosphere, unlike any other event.

THE THUNDERBIRDS EXTEND FREE ADMISSION OFFER TO FIRST RESPONDERS, MILITARY MEMBERS, AND VETERANS TO THE 2022 WM PHOENIX OPEN

The Thunderbirds are once again inviting active First Responders as well as Active, Reserve, Veterans and Retired U.S. Military personnel and one accompanying individual to be their guest at the 2022 WM Phoenix Open Presented by Taylor Morrison. This is the 20th year that the tournament host Thunderbirds have extended this free invitation as a small gesture of thanks for all these heroes do for our country.

To take advantage of the free admission offer, First Responders and Active, Reserve, Veterans and Retired U.S. Military must first go to https://auth.govx.com/tickets/entertainer-events/a412f690-987f-ec11-8a0d-000d3ac50276/?display=full to register through the GovX verification program ($5.50 processing fee applies). Once qualified, they will receive a link as well as a unique one-time passcode to secure their mobile tickets. Tickets are limited to two per day, per qualifying applicant. A mobile ticket will be required to enter the tournament. Additional information can be found HERE.

Additionally, the Birdies for the Brave Patriots Outpost will be open Wednesday through Sunday during tournament week and available to all Active, Reserve, Veterans, and Retired U.S. military from all five branches of the Armed Forces. Located in a prime spot near the 18th tee, Patriots’ Outpost is a great venue where military personnel (+ one guest) can enjoy great food and drinks (complimentary) and watch PGA TOUR golf action in a relaxed and comfortable setting.

In order for all of our military heroes to get the chance to experience the Birdies for the Brave Patriots Outpost, official military IDs will be required to gain access, and the one-guest maximum guideline will be enforced to help keep the crowds and wait times down.

The 2022 WM Phoenix Open will take place Feb. 7-13 at TPC Scottsdale. “The People’s Open” has been named the Tournament of the Year by the PGA TOUR four times in the past seven years (2014, 2015, 2018, 2019) to acknowledge the tournament’s legendary status as one the most unique events in golf. The 2022 edition will mark the 87th playing of the event (one of the five oldest events on the PGA TOUR) and the 13th with WM as title sponsor.

The Thunderbirds were founded in 1937 with the mission of promoting the Valley of the Sun through sports. The Thunderbirds consist of 55 “active” members and more than 280 “life” members who have helped the tournament eclipse $165 million in charitable giving since its inception in 1932 (through the 2021 tournament). For more information on The Thunderbirds or the 2022 WM Phoenix Open, visit thunderbirdscharities.org.

The Phoenix Open began in 1932, but due to lack of local support, the tournament was discontinued after the 1935 event.

Over the tournament’s 84-year history, the Open has been known by many names, including the Western Open, the Arizona Open, the Ben Hogan Invitational, the Phoenix Open, the FBR Open, and now the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The tournament has been played at Phoenix Country Club, Arizona Country Club, and TPC Scottsdale – the home course of the tournament since 1987 – and 2021 will mark the 34th consecutive year the tournament has been played at TPC Scottsdale. Aside from the TPC Sawgrass (32 years), TPC Scottsdale has the longest continuous stretch a Tournament Players Club has hosted a PGA TOUR event.

 

 

Each year brings new excitement to the Waste Management Phoenix Open, but with last year’s event limited by the coronavirus pandemic, the enthusiasm and anticipation for the 2022 edition of “The People’s Open” are at an all-time high.

Leading the charge for The Thunderbirds this year is Michael Golding, an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, husband, father of two, and now the Tournament Chairman for the 2022 Waste Management Phoenix Open.

“The success of this event is a testament to the support we get from our communities,” Golding said. “And the support we get from the PGA TOUR and Waste Management – one of the greatest title sponsors in all of the sports – makes us extremely proud. We want to Get Back to Giving Back. Our number-one goal is giving to charity and raising money for charity.”

The Thunderbirds were founded in 1937 with the mission of promoting the Valley of the Sun through sports. The Thunderbirds consist of 55 “active” members and more than 285 “life” members. The Thunderbirds raised a record $12.2 million for charity from proceeds from the 2018 WM Phoenix Open and have eclipsed $134 million in charitable giving since its inception in 1932.
