Streaker steals the show at PGA Tour event

After a birdie Thursday from 3 feet on this tournament's signature hole, Haas now has three birdies in his last five trips to No. 16. "I've been struggling", he said after making five birdies, an eagle, and no bogeys at sun-drenched TPC Scottsdale. Billy Horschel, Bryson DeChambeau, Chesson Hadley shot 66 as well. There really is not another area of golf where you'll find a golf hole looking like a frat party all weekend, as sauced fans will barage the hole with beer cans in the event that a hole-in-one happens.

Lee is yet to find his rhythm in the new year though will be pleased to have broken a run of three straight missed cuts in qualifying for the weekend at Torrey Pines. "Yeah, I had kind of a rough December, I had mono and that wasn't good, but I was fine, I got to Hawaii and wanted to get out there and get some good on-course reps", Spieth said.

Palmer won three times in a row in Phoenix from 1961-1963. Spieth placed ninth in this tournament past year. From what I could tell, Woods looked sharper than expected around the greens and if he can start hitting fairways, arguably the best player of all-time should be able to contend for wins this season.

Playing directly behind Fowler's group, Rahm and fellow former Arizona State player Phil Mickelson each birdied the 16th for the loudest roars on the hole in the morning - other than the helicopter that buzzed the stands just before playing partner Xander Schauffele hit. For some reason, that venue has given him fits of late, and yet in recent years he has bounced right back at TPC Scottsdale, suffering a playoff loss to Hideki Matsuyama two years ago and tying for fourth a year ago.

Jon Rahm, reigning FedExCup champion Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler will all be present.

Even though he faded in the final round to finish T6, An said later: "I just can't wait to come back next year. I think some good and bad all around", said Fowler, ranked No. 7 in the world. "Maybe if you miss you're in the desert and can still play shots instead of going in the water".
