With the 2016 PGA Golf Season well underway this week on Thursday the 4th thru the 7th of February 2016 we move on to the 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open, and after a delayed conclusion of the exciting 2016 Farmers Insurance Open you will see some of the better golfers in the world moving on to this tournament in Phoenix, Arizona. The Tournament will host some 17 of the top 50 golfers in the World in this event starting on Thursday.
Presently fans are speculating as to who will finish with the victory and the $1.16 million as the 1st place finisher. So if you continue reading we will try to tell you what some the experts are expecting in this world-class tournament from Arizona, U.S.A.
One of the experts has picked B. Watson to win this 2016 Open at Phoenix because he has an outstanding record of play here at this Scottsdale Golf Course. Plus in the past 2 tournaments on this course, and has not been outside of the Top 15 golfers since back in the 2011 PGA season. Therefore this expert thinks Watson is ready for a breakthrough and a win here at Scottsdale.
That will not be easy for Watson since he will come in competition with 1 of the hottest golfers this season on the PGA Tour in J. Dufner who enters this tournament after his exciting victory at the Career Builders Challenge event. In that round of golf Dufner was in the top 5 ranking for putting and accuracy of drives off the tees. Also, remember that he also has played well here at Scottsdale and was 2nd back in 2011.
Another expert thinks that R. Flower will end up victorious at this Waste Management Open in Phoenix this week, as he believes Fowler has reached his potential at golf as he has posted some 4 wins around the glove in the ultimate 9 months of his golf career. Yes, last year he was only able to tie for the 46th spot, although posting a 67 on the final 18 last seasons. He did finish 2nd in this Phoenix open back in the 2011 season.
That same expert believes that Fowler in seeking the victory will have some keen competition from B. Snedeker who was the winner at last week’s Farmers Insurance Open as he recorded a 282 and at 6 under par, and with a last round of 69 and that was the difference in the event as Snedeker was some 9 points better than the average of the field. So yes, this should be an interesting golf match at Scottsdale beginning this Thursday.
Late news tells us that the NBC’s television host D. Feherty (Emmy-nominated) will be at this Phoenix Open and will make his debut live at this tournament as part of the NBC Golf Channel as he joins the NBC sports group for 2016 and brings aboard some 20 years as a golf course reporter for CBS after his own golfing career.
