Waste Management Phoenix Open History
The first game of the FBR Open was held in 1932, but in 1935 the tournament discontinued. The tradition was revived only four years later, in 1939, thanks to the efforts of the golfer Bob Goldwater.
The tournament was played in Phoenix, Arizona, at Phoenix Country Club. From 1995 the event was held at Arizona country club (located in Phoenix as well).
Since 1975 Phoenix Country Club became the golf tournaments permanent home once again. Twelve years later the event was moved to another location, TPC of Scottsdale Stadium Course.
2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open Winner
After having problems in earlier PGA tournaments Phil Mickelson left no doubts on who would win the 2013 Phoenix Open with a rare wire-to-wire victory in one of the lowest 72 hole scores ever recorded on the tour. He finished with a 28 under par 256 after his closing round of 4-under 67 that started out incredibly in the first round.
Mickelson lipped out his birdie putt on the final hole in the opening round that would have given him that prestigious 59 shared by only 5 players in PGA Tour events. That 60 was enough for him to start an easy win by 4-strokes over Mr. HOT, Brandt Snedeker, who also finished in second place a week earlier to Tiger Woods. This was Phil Mickelson’s 24th appearance and third victory in the Phoenix Open with wins in 1996 and 2005.
2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open Winner
Kyle Stanley closed with a fourth round 6 under par 65 to win the 2012 tournament after being down 8 strokes going into the final round.
Spencer Levin was 17 under after Saturday’s play before a huge fan gallery that set a tournament record attendance of 173,210. Levin succumbed to the pressure on Sunday shooting a 4 over par 75 dropping him to 14 under par and a third place finish behind Ben Crane for the tournament.
The ironic thing is that Stanley was on the other end of a closing round PGA victory just a week earlier. He blew a big lead closing with a triple bogey on the final hole at Torrey Pines just 7 days earlier.
2011 Phoenix Open Winner
Packers fan Mark Wilson celebrated a big victory of his own on a playing field about as close to frozen tundra as it gets on the PGA Tour.
A self-described cheesehead from Menomonee Falls, Wis., Wilson won the frost-delayed Phoenix Open on Monday for his second victory in three starts this year, holing a 9-foot birdie putt on the second hole of a playoff with Jason Dufner.
"I'm just enjoying the ride here and that's just kind of the way I'm going to look at the year here, just ride this train as long as I can," Wilson said. After playing until dark Sunday and fulfilling some parental duties, he was able to watch only a few minutes of the Super Bowl. "I had to wash Lane's face and put his jammies on, and I had to eat, too,"
Wilson said. "The chaos, with two little kids running around - I like the chaos; it's a good distraction. But at that time, I want to at least get to watch the last 15 minutes of this game. This doesn't happen every year, the Packers in the Super Bowl.
2010 Waste Management Phoenix Open Results
Hunter Mahan has been one of the most successful golfers not to win a tournament the last two years.
That's not the case anymore. Mahan came from four strokes back to win the Phoenix Open by a shot over Rickie Fowler on Sunday in a 1-2 finish for former Oklahoma State players.
"It's always a little better to lose to a Cowboy," Fowler said. The 27-year-old Mahan had an eagle and a pair of birdies in a late four-hole span to finish at 16-under 268. Mahan, whose first victory came at the 2007 Travelers Championship, closed with consecutive bogey-free 6-under 65s. He's the eighth U.S.-born player still in his 20s to win more than one tournament.
Fowler, just 21 and a tour rookie, had a final-round 68 for the second runner-up finish of his young career, both of them in Arizona.
J.B. Holmes won FBR Open in 2008 and Kenny Perry won the 2009 tournament and took home $1,080,000 of the $6 million total purse.
