WEDNESDAY AT THE 2024 WM PHOENIX OPEN
The highly anticipated, celebrity infused Annexus Pro-Am teed off today, with superstars like Larry Fitzgerald Jr., Michael Phelps, Adrian Beltre, Nate Bargatze, Nick Saban, Glen Powell, Carli Lloyd and other VIPs and trendsetters. But Mother Nature swooped in with enough rain to delay and then cancel the annual Wednesday event, the first time since 2011.
A break in weather allowed for enough time to host the WHOOP Shot at Glory, however, where a packed house at the famed 16th hole witnessed many sports stars and community leaders vie for their chance at $1 million for charity. Of the 25-plus contestants, Brad Schoenberg representing sponsor Taylor Morrison was closest to the pin at 5’ from the hole. Charlie Tucker took second place at 10’ 4”, third place went to Jim Pitman at 16’ 9” and MLB Hall-of-fame third baseman Adrian Beltre took fourth at 19’ 1”
Weather won’t impact the PGA TOUR’s biggest afterparty – the Coors Light Birds Nest. Country music star and 2022 ACM award winner HARDY, and country music’s latest sensation Bailey Zimmerman kick off the four-night concert series across the street from “The People’s Open.” Pro move? Head there early to The Pavilions and grab awesome food and drinks before the headliners take the stage.
The first round of the 2024 WM Phoenix Open begins tomorrow with morning groupings set to tee off at 7:20 a.m. and afternoon groupings beginning at 12:00 a.m. Will Scottie Scheffler complete the three-peat? Stay tuned – same WMPO time, same WMPO channel.
