Waste Management Phoenix Open Odds, TV Schedule, Tee Times: Can Hideki Three-peat?


It’s that time of year again for the Greatest Show on Grass, nope, not the Super Bowl, the Waste Management Phoenix Open. This tournament is always one filled with excitement, mostly because of the crowds, but over the past two years there have been two playoffs as well.

Hideki Matsuyama, who has won the previous two editions of this event in playoffs over Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson, returns to make a run at a third straight WM Phoenix Open win. Matsuyama, currently ranked fifth in the world, has finished in the top five of three of his last four events. Most recently he finished T4 at the Tournament of Champions and T12 last week at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Matsuyama will have his hands full this year as the field is loaded with top guys who are playing well. Jordan SpiethJon Rahm, Rickie Fowler, and Justin Thomas are the names that stand out the most, but there is plenty of other talent in the field as well.

My Pick

It’s going to be hard to pick anyone but Hideki this week so I’m not going to. I think the course suits his game, obviously as he’s won the previous two events, and I think he’s playing well enough to win again this year.
