The Thunderbirds, sponsors of the open, always put on a great show. It was good to see 2-time Champ and Arizona State University Alumnus, Phil Mickelson out there. Phil was playing with Ryan Palmer today. Ryan is the grandson of Arnold Palmer. Ryan was playing some impressive golf.
Also, it was great seeing Freddie Couples playing well. He will be a real draw on the Champions Tour (Seniors) this year. Freddie’s smooth swing is always a pleasure to watch.
Visit the TPC on your next Scottsdale Vacation.
The 2010 Phoenix Open will draw hundreds of thousands of people to Phoenix and Scottsdale shops and restaurants.
Just blocks from the Open, is the new Scottsdale Quarter – a new city district, right across the street from Kierland Commons (great shops and restaurants). The stores are starting to open at the Scottsdale Quarter. The new Apple Mac store is beautiful and the Oakville Grocery was packed with customers enjoying high quality gourmet, specialty food and wine.

The Waste Management PHOENIX OPEN Golf Tournament comes to town this next week. The tournament is held at the Scottsdale TPC, which is basically kitty-corner to the Kierland Golf Course, pictured here. The Westin Kierland Resort and Spa is a great place to stay when visiting Scottsdale. Close to great golf and great shopping.
We were just up there over the weekend and the weather was spectacular, and the stores and Scottsdale restaurants were packed. The Phoenix Open is a great place to watch golf, and even if you have no interest in golf, it is a great place to get exercise walking and people watch. And don’t forget the wild 16th hole, if you go.
