Waste Management and The Thunderbirds began the GREEN OUT in 2011 as a way for fans to honor and support the sustainability initiatives of the tournament and title sponsor Waste Management. In 2013, the GREEN OUT raised $60,000 for three environmental non-profits organizations.
The Waste Management Phoenix Open played January 27 – February 2, 2014, at the TPC Scottsdale. The tournament host Thunderbirds have raised more than $86 million for charities, with more than $60 million generated since 2004. The 2014 edition marks the 79th playing of the event, making it one of the five oldest events on the PGA TOUR (not including the major championships).
