WM Phoenix Open 2024 PGA Tour picks to win, odds, course history

2023 WM Phoenix Open

The People’s Open. The Darty — a day party for those unfamiliar with the lingo — in the Desert.

Whatever you call it, the WM Phoenix Open is the PGA Tour’s annual bash at TPC Scottsdale.

And a loaded field has traveled to Arizona this year, including back-to-back defending champion and world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler. He’ll be joined by Justin Thomas, Max Homa, Sam Burns, Jordan Spieth, last week’s 54-hole winner Wyndham Clark, Matt Fitzpatrick and Min Woo Lee.

Two top-5 players in the world, Viktor Hovland and Xander Schauffele, withdrew from the tournament on Monday.

Scheffler is the first Tour player this year hoping to make it a turkey, with Tom Kim set to pursue the same feat later this year at the Shriners Children’s Open.

We got Mother Natured last week. Thanks to one helluva storm on Sunday, Justin Thomas and Ludvig Aberg were unable to chase down Wyndham Clark for the title. The golf gods owe us one in the desert.
