The Waste Management Phoenix Open – also called “The People’s Open” and “The Greenest Show on Grass” – returns to TPC Scottsdale, February 7-13, 2022 with all of its host suites, the iconic 16th Hole Coliseum and concerts in the evening at the Coors Light Birds Nest.
Following a scaled-down version of the tournament in 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, officials said this year’s event and tournament are expected to continue as before the pandemic.
If you’re headed to the course, here’s everything you need to know about tickets and times, the famous Pro-Am tournament and who’s performing at the Birds Nest.
When is Waste Management Phoenix open?
The Phoenix Open will be held February 7-13, 2022 at TPC Scottsdale, 17020 North Hayden Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85255, Scottsdale. It was pushed back a week this year, so the final day of the event was coordinated with the Super Bowl, which was also pushed back a week after the NFL extended the season to 18 weeks.
The Annexus Pro-Am, which pairs professional golfers with athletes and other personalities, will be held on Wednesday, February 9. The PGA tournament will take place from Thursday to Sunday February 10-13.
