Another Day. Another PGA Tour attendance record for the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Saturday at TPC Scottsdale saw a crowd of 204,906, breaking both the Saturday record and the single-day record for PGA Tour attendance numbers.
If 21,585 fans make their way through the gates for Sunday’s final round, the 2017 Phoenix Open will break the total weekly PGA Tour attendance record of 618,365 that was set at last year’s event.
Saturday was the Green Out Day and since about half of the crowd was clad in green, 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).
This is the seventh year of the Green Out at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and it has now raised $490,000 for local environmental organizations.
Byeong Hun is leading the way at 16-under as he looks for his first PGA Tour victory.
Defending champion Hideki Matsuyama is among group that is four shots off the pace.
Three-time champion Phil Mickelson is six shots back, starting the final round at 10-under.
