Super Bowl 49 found itself a crazy neighbor with the PGA Tour hosting the Waste Management Phoenix Open last week.
Being professional athletes -- and ones with lots of cash to throw around -- many PGA Tour stars hoped to attend the game in nearby Glendale. Players worried about having to rush from the course to University of Phoenix Stadium immediately following the completion of Sunday's final round (Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson had no such worries).
While not every player was able to make the game, plenty of them shared their commentary on Twitter. It all began with some playful chiding at noted Patriots fan, Keegan Bradley.
