Michael Phelps Goes to Waste

The Waste Management Phoenix Open, that is. You know, the tournament with the completely enclosed par-3 16th hole. According to a golfchannel.com article, the quasi-stadium can hold 15,000 fans.

According to the same article, Michael Phelps got a taste of the booing and jeering during Wednesday's pro-am. Taking 4 on the par-3 isn't the way to get applause there, of course. Even playing with Bubba Watson didn't help.

It would appear that Hank Haney still has work to do.

Of course, there will be plenty of booing to go around starting today. Mickelson will be the biggest name to get booed, but the fans will find no lack of good players to humiliate. Everybody from Keegan Bradley and Jason Dufner to Padraig Harrington and Ryo Ishikawa will be in the desert.

And as usual, Boo Weekley will welcome the boos and the fans will welcome the booze. Welcome to Scottsdale!

The PreGame Show starts on GC at 3:30pm ET today. The actual TV coverage of the booing begins at 4pm ET.
