Streaker Enjoys Himself at Waste Management Phoenix Open Pro

Leishman with score to settle in Phoenix

He has finished in the top 10 in seven of his last eight tournaments, but is coming off an 18-place finish at the Sony Open in Hawaii. On his second nine, he made a 43-foot birdie putt on the par-3 fourth and a 14-footer on the par-4 eighth.

"It just kind of humbles you, grounds you a bit, and makes you realize that there's a lot bigger things than just playing golf".

Matsuyama opened with a 2-under 69 on Thursday at TPC Scottsdale. That it's annually held on Super Bowl weekend only adds to the party mood.

Spieth, now third in the world ranking, is one of many players trying to reach the top spot. He finished second in 2010, his first start in the event, lost in a playoff to Hideki Matsuyama in 2016 and finished in a tie for fourth previous year. Matsuyama defeated Fowler in 2016 and Simpson in 2017, both times in four-hole playoffs. Palmer accomplished the feat from 1961-63.

The front of the betting has such a high-class look this week that Justin Thomas only finds himself as the fifth favourite. That goes to Jordan Spieth at +558. That year at TPC Scottsdale, Haas finished solo 76th, thanks in large part to a closing 77.

Rickie Fowler loves it here too and is due a victory soon while Thomas can win anywhere.

Berger has started the season in impressive fashion with T11 in the Sentry Tournament of Champions and T14 at the Sony Open where he closed with a 64. He was fifth here in 2015 and 16th previous year. Haas was frustrated with his results - he's missed three cuts in six starts this season with a best finish of T-17 - so he did what normally does and called his dad, Jay Haas, who then recommended his son dial up Utley.

No Canadian was in contention last week in San Diego with Corey Conners finishing the best at T29.

Others I looked at were Adam Hadwin and Ollie Schniederjans. Holmes comes in off just missing out on a playoff at the Farmers where there was an uproar about his slow play, especially on the last hole.

Nick Taylor is +16100 and Ben Silverman +27300. A year ago 655,434 made their way through the gates during the course of the week. The lone Canadian victor of this tournament was George Knudson back in 1968.
