GolfWRX is live this week from the 2018 Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale's Stadium Course (par 71: 7,261 yards) in Scottsdale, Arizona. The course is home to one of the most-exciting and rowdy holes in golf, the par-3 16th that houses a stadium and serves plenty of beer for the party/event-goers.

It's a stacked field in the desert this week, featuring five of the top-seven ranked golfers in the world. Hideki Matsuyama, currently ranked No. 5 in the Official World Golf Rankings, comes in as the back-to-back defending champion, so he'll be looking to three-peat. Other notables include Jon Rahm, now the No. 2 ranked player in the world, Jordan Spieth (N0. 3), Justin Thomas (No. 4), Rickie Fowler (No. 7), and Phil Mickelson, a three-time Phoenix Open champion.

Last year, Matsuyama beat out Webb Simpson in a four-hole playoff, which was one year after defeating Fowler in a playoff to win the 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Cool to see Wyndham Clark in the field this week; I've rooted for him since his days at Oklahoma State.

What was up with those Vans Bubba was wearing? Was he basically wearing street shoes out there? And isn't he under contract to wear Oakley shoes?

What shaft was in Woodlandís driver? His witb posted on Facebook said Speeder evo 757 but it definitely didnít look like any speeder Iíve ever seen. Kind of looked like a Diamana X series?
