One of the most fun tournaments in golf kicks off Thursday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.
Three-time Phoenix winner Phil Mickelson will tee off in a marquee group featuring fellow major winners Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson.
Defending champion Brooks Koepka will join Bubba Watson, one of the players who most seems to embrace the raucous atmosphere the tournament creates.
And Brandt Snedeker, fresh off his impressive come-from-behind win at Torrey Pines last week, will head out with Billy Horschel and Steve Stricker.
