TPC Scottsdale Has Decided to Either Make the FBR Rock More or Suck More, Not Sure Which
If you're like me (and I apologize for that), the FBR Open is the best golf weekend of your year. There is good golf, tons of people and parties...lots and lots of parties.
The signature event of the FBR is the 16th hole on Saturday, basically a shit fest meet par-3. Well, the tournament has decided to surround the 16th with only tents, making it either a lot cooler or really, really lame and corporate.
Specifically, FBR Open officials have confirmed that the infamous par-3 16th at the TPC Scottsdale is now, and will remain, completely enclosed by seating. This will give new meaning to phrase ‘stadium golf’ when the PGA Tour arrives there in less than a month.
“We’re always looking to redefine ourselves,” tournament chairman John Felix told GolfChannel.com “And this puts a peak on a peak.”
The picture above is what it might look like. It people are tossing beers if someone knocks one for an ace, I really don't know anything anymore.
