Celebrity Field Draws Huge Crowd to Wednesday’s Annexus Pro-Am
Some of the biggest names in sports packed Wednesday’s star-studded Annexus Pro-Am to tee it up with the best PGA TOUR players in the world at the 2018 Waste Management Phoenix Open. No one was surprised to see two-time defending WM Phoenix Open champion Hideki Matsuyama’s group take top honors with a group score of 57. You can view the full Annexus Pro-Am results below.
Thousands of golf fanatics flocked to the famed 16th hole after the Pro-Am to watch the Phoenix Suns Charities Shot at Glory, a closest-to-the-pin contest for a chance at $1 million for charity. Spectators on hand were treated to the sight of professional skydivers bringing the American Flag down from the clouds, as well as the Phoenix Suns dance team and firework displays. Dave Wood, senior VP of OUTFRONT Media, secured first place in the contest when his ball came to rest 14 feet five inches from the center pin location. Jim Pitman came in second only five inches outside of Wood’s shot, and Charles Kelley from Lady Antebellum came in third place, 21 feet seven inches from the hole.
Buckle up, sports fans: Thursday’s first round kicks off tomorrow morning at 7:20 a.m. with the afternoon groupings starting at 11:35 a.m.
