Saturday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open Presented by The Ak-Chin Indian Community broke yet another attendance record, as 204,906 fans were on hand to watch the third round action at TPC Scottsdale. The previous record for Saturday attendance was 201,003, set just last year.
The Waste Management Phoenix Open’s seventh annual GREEN OUT raised $100,000 for three non-profit environmental organizations in the Valley. For every person who wore GREEN to the tournament on Saturday, The Thunderbirds will donate $33,333 each to Bonneville Environmental Foundation’s “Change the Course,” Arizona Recycling Coalition and the Arizona Chapter of Solid Waste Association of North America (AZ SWANA). According to the Waste Management Phoenix Open’s ‘Green Squad,’ nearly half of Saturday’s record-breaking crowd of 204,906 fans and PGA TOUR pros donned GREEN gear.
The Waste Management Phoenix Open has taken sustainability to the next level and has redefined what “GREEN” means on the PGA TOUR.
