CBS SPORTS’ COVERAGE OF PGA TOUR’S “WEST COAST SWING” CONTINUES WITH
“WASTE MANAGEMENT PHOENIX OPEN” ON FEBRUARY 1-2
Three-time champion and local favorite Phil Mickelson is scheduled to defend his title this week at the WASTE MANAGEMENT PHOENIX OPEN in Scottsdale, Ariz, against a standout tournament field of young stars and seasoned veterans including 19 of the top 30 in the current FedExCup standings and 22 of the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking. CBS Sports broadcasts third and final-round coverage of the Waste Management Phoenix Open from the TPC Scottsdale on Saturday, Feb. 1 and Sunday, Feb. 2 (3:00-6:00 PM, ET, both days), live on the CBS Television Network.
This weekend at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, and for all 20 PGA TOUR events this year, CBS Sports’ PGA TOUR coverage is streamed live on CBSSports.com and PGATOUR.com. The live streaming coverage also is available on the CBS Sports app for the iPhone, iPad and Android.
Jim Nantz, now in his 29th year overall covering golf for CBS Sports, serves as anchor for the Network’s golf coverage. Sir Nick Faldo, winner of six majors and more than 40 tournaments worldwide, returns for his seventh year as lead analyst alongside Nantz in the 18th tower. Ian Baker-Finch calls the action from the 17th; Gary McCord the 16th; and David Feherty and Peter Kostis serve as on-course reporters.
Last year, Arizona State University alumni Mickelson earned his third title at TPC Scottsdale (1996, 2005) with an opening round 11- under 60, the lowest score in the tournament’s history. With the win he joined Steve Jones (1977) as only the second wire-to-wire winner of the event since 1970. Mickelson, who went on to win the 2013 British Open, is competing this week against another three-time winner here, Marc Calcavecchia, as well as past champions Kyle Stanley, Mark Wilson, Hunter Mahan, J.B. Holmes, Aaron Baddeley and Vijay Singh.
Mickelson, three-time Masters champion and 2005 PGA Championship winner, is playing in his 25th Waste Management Phoenix Open with an all-star field that includes Lee Westwood in his first start at TPC Scottsdale, Brandt Snedeker, Bubba Watson, Keegan Bradley, Rickie Fowler, Ian Poulter, Graeme DeLaet, Patrick Reed, Webb Simpson, Geoff Ogilvy, Gary Woodland, Ryan Moore, Harris English, Martin Kaymer, Billy Horschel, Carl Pettersson, K.J.Choi, Nick Watney, Martin Laird, Bill Haas, Angel Cabrera, Padraig Harrington, Y.E. Yang, Brian Gay, Charley Hoffman, Mike Weir, Ben Crane, Bo Van Pelt, Charlie Wi, Lucas Glover, Rory Sabbatini, Pat Perez, Charles Howell III and last week’s Farmer’s Insurance Open winner Scott Stallings.
