Fbr Open Tickets for Sale

That year, 27-year-old Byron Nelson won the $700 first prize, with Hogan finishing second, 12 strokes back and collecting $450. After the success of the 1939 Phoenix Open and a few more persuasive conversations, The Thunderbirds finally came around; offering their full support and sponsoring an Open every year except 1943, when wartime travel restrictions forced a one-year hiatus.

The list of FBR/Phoenix Open winners reads like a golf Hall of Fame, with older legends the likes of Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan, Billy Casper, Gene Littler, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Miller Barber, Johnny Miller, and Ben Crenshaw heading the list, with more recent names like Lee Janzen, Vijay Singh, Phil Mickelson, Steve Jones, and Tom Lehman, rounding it out.

The FBR Open has gained notoriety on the PGA Tour for having the largest crowds and being unlike any other golf tournament. What makes the FBR Open different from the others is the unbelievable play by the likes of Kenny Perry, Phil Mickelson, and Vijay Singh on the beautiful course while continually hosting the biggest fan galleries in golf. In the middle of all of the golf and galleries are The Thunderbirds. As hosts of the FBR since 1939, this fine group of Valley business men has turned an ordinary golfing event into a community happening, commonly referred to as "The Greatest Show on Grass", while in the meantime having raised close to $65 million for different Arizona charities.

Previously known as the Phoenix Open, the 2010 edition will mark the 75th playing of the Open, the seventh as the FBR Open, and making it one of the five oldest events on the PGA Tour. If making plans to get your tickets for the 2010 FBR Open on February 22-28, keep in mind that due to the design of the FBR Open course and grounds, an unlimited number of people can witness great golf action, meaning tickets are never sold out. Additionally, there's the TPC Scottsdale course itself; one of the finest venues on the tour for both players and fans, they don't call it the "Stadium Course" for nothing. There is more than sufficient room to witness the critical shots on all of the crucial holes; mainly the final four holes, which offer classic risk versus reward golf options for the game's top professionals.

The Phoenix Open began in 1932, was discontinued after the 1935 event, and was revived again thanks to one man's vision, energy, and dedication. Bob Goldwater, Sr., an avid golfer, persuaded his fellow Thunderbirds into running the tournament, and in 1939 the Phoenix Open was officially reborn. Unfortunately, Goldwater was on his own when it came to most of the work, as his fellow Thunderbirds were not yet as enthused about the event as he was. Not to be discouraged, Goldwater printed tickets, obtained sponsorships, gained use of the Phoenix Country Club, and then decided to also invite a few of his friends to play in the event. Those friends just happened to be Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, and a golfer by the name of Ben Hogan.
