Sunday afternoon at the 18th gap of TPC Scottsdale, Dr. Michael Golding officially handed the torch to the next WM Phoenix Open chairman, set the ceremonial blue sport coat on winner Scottie Scheffler and presented Scheffler with a novelty oversized test for his winnings adopted by the tournament championship trophy. 

And with that, Golding’s yr as event chairman arrived to an finish. It was time to hug his loved ones, thank properly-wishers and fellow Thunderbirds and bask in the pleasure of an occasion that returned to what it had been prior to the onset of the pandemic.

The training course grounds teemed with activity all weekend a yr following attendance was constrained in the midst of the COVID-19 condition.

“We had no constraints, with our function with the PGA Tour, the city of Scottsdale and the state of Arizona. We experienced 200 acres of open up air,” Golding claimed. “Every person arrived out, everyone was pretty positive, it was a good 7 days, it was a really protected 7 days, a incredibly productive 7 days and we are very happy of what we just hosted.”

Golding mentioned the dollar total for charity would be a “significant range” mainly because of the fans.
