Designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish and set in the rugged Sonoran Desert surrounded by the stunning McDowell Mountains, the world famous Stadium Course plays host once again to the Waste Management Phoenix Open, made famous by the 20,000 fans that surround the par 3 16th, where golf meets football and WWF.

Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish, probably never dreamed it would become famous throughout the world. "Really it was designed as just a little bridge hole to get to the 17th and 18th," said Weiskopf. "Here is this little par 3 that doesn't seem to be much of a challenge." Morrish said the hole has become a "rallying point for the unduly enthusiastic and sobriety-challenged portion of the gallery."

Some of the professionals competing in this week’s tournament will bring gifts to try and appease the crowd that surround this hole. A tee shot that misses the green or a putt that is left short is greeted by a crescendo of boos, it’s not a hole for the faint hearted.

The 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th are what make this an exciting tournament course. The 17th is a drivable par 4, "Short par 4s are hard to do correctly," Weiskopf said. "If you are going to lay up, I want the players to have the pressure of a tough chip and putt”. So remember while watching this tournament your money isn’t safe until your player has holed out on the 18th.

My tips to win:

This week Hideki Matsuyama 10/1 – with BetFred – goes for three in a row at the Phoenix Open, but that is not the whole story Hideki has teed it up here four times making the Top 5 in his first year and then runner-up the second time, followed by those two wins. I think saying he enjoys this event could be an understatement.

I did tip Rickie Fowler 14/1 – with SportingBet – last week in an event I knew he doesn’t normally play well in, I believed his current form would see him finally compete at Torrey Pines, unfortunately that never happened. Fortunately Rickie does enjoy the TPC Scottsdale track and has two runner-up finishes here and a Top 5 last year so I expect to see him bounce back this week

Webb Simpson 40/1 – with SportingBet – had a runner-up finish here last year, but he also has three other Top 10 finishes over the TPC Scottsdale course. Webb has started the wraparound season in solid form with three Top 20 finishes from his five starts with his best placing being a Top 5 at the Hawaii Open. Simpson also finished last year well with three Top 10s from his last five starts and looks like he could be coming back into great form.

My each-way tips:

There will be a look of attention on J B Holmes 45/1 – with Bet365 – this week after that 4-minute time lapse over his shot while forcing Alex Noren who was battling to win the tournament to wait – I must admit I would have played out of turn if I was in Alex’s position – I am sure the criticism will be like water off a ducks back and it may actually spur him on to do well here this week, in an event that he has won twice.

Another player that has two runner-up finishes and a Top 5 here is Ryan Palmer 70/1 – with Bet365 – who comes into this week on the back of a runner-up finish at the Farmers Insurance Open last week and should be in buoyant mood.

My outside tips:

As I stated earlier in the year when tipping this lad, I feel Cameron Smith 123/1 – with BetFair – will win on the PGA Tour this year and he has certainly made a great start finishing inside the Top 20 in all of his five starts two of which were Top 5 places, he also won earlier this year in Australia.

As always good luck
