2018 Waste Management Open Picks
The Waste Management Phoenix Open is set to start this week and we’ve made our not so expert picks. Unfortunetly Tiger isn't in the feild so we've been forced to pick a few others:
Phil Mickelson - As a three time winner of the Waste Management Open (1996, 2005, 2013) it’s safe to say Mickelson feels right at home at TPC Scottsdale. We expect no shortage of fan support as Mickelson attended Arizona State University where he won 16 times. We’re anticipating lots of hat tips and smiles as Mickelson makes his way up the leaderboard this week.
Rickie Fowler - Coming off of a 4th and 2nd place finish the last two years, we expect Rickie to be on the first page again this year at the Waste Management Open. Rickie is always a fan favourite, but especially popular at the TPC Scottsdale with an abundance of support from the college kids in attendance. Rickie also has a lot to prove after his missed cut last week at Torrey. Rickie loves the heat and the attention and we expect he’ll be pumping up the crowd at the 16th again this year.
Hideki Matsuyama - How can we not pick Hideki? Fresh off back to back wins and a 2nd place finish in 2015, it’s quite clear Hideki loves this track and this track loves him. We look forward to watching him go for the three-peat; something that hasn’t been done here since Arnold Palmer in 1963.
Adam Hadwin – We’ve gotta support the team! We proudly take Hadwin as our sleeper. He’s coming off a few top 20s here in the last few years and a T3 finish at the Career Builder Challenge. Not quite sure if he has what it takes to win but we’re still betting on our boy!
