The greatest show on grass set a new attendance record Saturday with a reported 201,003 showing up to watch the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.

After setting a single-day record last season with 189,722 on Saturday in 2015, the event saw nearly a six percent increase in Saturday attendance.

Last season also saw a record total for the week-long event with more than 560,000 fans showing up. A similar showing on Sunday could set yet another week-long record this year.
