VGA Big Dog points winners for today’s event.
Neal Fisel First place. Steve Richter Second place. Dan Campos Third place. TPC Scottsdale was the sixth club in the TPC Network, born from the dream of the PGA TOUR Commissioner Deane Beman. His vision was to create a network of clubs that would embody the TOUR’s rigorous quality standards, provide unparalleled venues for TOUR events, and further advance the PGA TOUR’s charitable contributions. In early 1986, the Phoenix Thunderbirds (host organization for the Phoenix Open) started looking for a new tournament site. Their intention was to grow the event, which was limited in size and number of spectators by its previous location, the Phoenix Country Club. Many locations in Phoenix were considered, but due to environmental issues, the Thunderbirds were running out of options. TOUR Commissioner Beman began assisting the Thunderbirds in identifying a new location when then Scottsdale Mayor, Herb Drinkwater, called with the perfect solution – he could secure land within the city of Scottsdale that would offer the ideal setting for a stadium-style course. So in cooperation with the Bureau of Reclamation, the City of Scottsdale, and the Phoenix Thunderbirds, the PGA TOUR moved the event to its new location ¬and named it Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale. TPC Scottsdale and The Stadium Course began construction in January 1986. The design team of renowned architects Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish was directed by Commissioner Beman to create a similar Stadium design like that at TPC Sawgrass – allowing all spectators a perfect view of the tournament. In today’s scoring Neal Fisel and Steve Richter tied at 70 net. Neal won and Steve got second on a scorecard playoff. Well done guys, know you all had your sweat towels out.
