Jon Rahm among golf’s biggest names at Waste Management Phoenix Open
Hometown fan favorite and Arizona State golf graduate Jon Rahm made his seventh start at TPC Scottsdale’s Waste Management Phoenix Open Feb. 9 through 12. Often known as ‘The People’s Open’ or ‘The Greatest and Greenest Show on Grass,’ it has built the reputation of being a major social gathering centered around golf’s biggest names, including Rahm. The 28-year-old and No. 1 in the Official World Golf Rankings dueled with Scottie Scheffler and Nick Taylor to earn his first victory at the Phoenix Open, but fell short on Sunday. Rahm finished -3 in the final round, -14 overall, behind Scottie Scheffler, who became the first to repeat in Scottsdale since 2016-17. While Rahm came up short, he carried hundreds of rowdy and passionate fans with him over the course of the tournament. Rahm reclaimed his World No. 1 status after his win at the Genesis Invitational on Feb. 19.
