GolfWRX is live this week from the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale’s Stadium Course. The 7,216-yard, par-71 layout is highlighted by the par 3, 16th hole. Enclosed stadium seating, 20,000 rowdy spectators, caddy races and a raucous party atmosphere turn the short 162-yard hole into the “The Greatest Show on Grass.”

Defending champion Phil Mickelson was forced to withdraw from the Farmers Insurance Open last week due to soreness in his lower back. He has withdrawn from the Pro-Am this week but is hopeful to restore his health in time to defend his title.  He nearly shot 59 in last year’s opening round, lipping out on No. 18 in dramatic fashion. His fast start led to a four-stroke victory, carding 28-under for the week.

Although Mickelson will be a game time decision, the event still boasts a strong field including Rickie Fowler, Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson. Former No. 1 ranked player in the world, Lee Westwood, is set to make his first appearance in the desert– it will be interesting to see how he holds up amidst the craziness of the 16th hole.

Harris English and Patrick Reed will also be in the field, each looking to become the first multiple-time winner in 2014.
