On Sunday, we went to the WM Phoenix Open in Scottsdale, AZ. We decided to follow 1 group around the golf course: Ricky Fowler, Jason Day & Sungjae Im.
It was actually cheaper to go on Sunday – Superbowl Sunday – than any other day of the week ($50 vs $75). Parking with a shuttle bus was free and easy.
We enjoyed walking the entire course, but it was surprisingly hilly.
Pam and I were “Hole High” when Rickie made his hole in 1 on the 7th hole from 216 yards. We did not see the ball until it hit the green, but I did see it go in the hole!
This reminded me of 1996 when my dad and I attended the Greater Milwaukee Open. It was Tiger Wood’s pro debut. We were “Pin High” to the left of the green on hole 14. I saw the 188 yard shot all the way. It bounced s couple of times and rolled it. A great memory that day with my dad. YouTube Video here.
It was a fun day, but we were exhausted when we made it back to see the Super Bowl and all the commercials.
