This year's Waste Management Phoenix Open in Arizona lived up to its reputation as one of the wildest events in golf. The tournament is known for its loud crowds and wild celebrations at the 16th hole, where spectators cheer for hole-in-ones. However, this year's event was even more chaotic than usual. Thousands of people reportedly entered the event without tickets, leading organizers to close entry and stop the sale of alcohol. One particularly daring individual even streaked across the course, leading to his arrest. The 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale is enclosed with skyboxes and bleachers, creating an arena-like atmosphere. This unique setup has always attracted a rowdy crowd that is more interested in partying than golf. The unruly behavior at this year's event has raised questions about whether it should continue in its current form next year. Despite the chaos, Nick Taylor won the tournament, beating Charley Hoffman in a two-hole playoff.
