Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
Some of the biggest names in the world of golf are in picturesque Scottsdale, Arizona this week for the 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open. One of rising stars who will tee off at TPC Scottsdale is Rickie Fowler, who is also one of the most popular players currently on Tour.
SilverTribe, an online leader in Southwest and Native American jewelry, had the opportunity to hook up with the phenom before play got underway.
“Rickie Fowler is one of the brightest young stars in all of golf,” said SilverTribe spokesperson Chris Anderson. “Fowler is the perfect ambassador for a tournament that does so much to help so many.”
SilverTribe is a proud sponsor of this year’s Waste Management Open. The four-day event at TPC Scottsdale is attended by more fans than any other on the PGA Tour. Last year, a single-day record of 173,000 fans were on the course on February 4th.
The 24-year-old Fowler is currently 31st in the official World Golf Rankings. He captured his first PGA Tour victory by beating world number-one Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points in a playoff at the Wells Fargo Championship.
Fowler enters the Waste Management Open coming off a tie for sixth at Torrey Pines. Fowler has finished inside the top 30 at the Waste Management Open in each of the last three years. He was the runner-up in 2010.
“Fowler has to be considered one of the favorites to win at the TPC Scottsdale,” said Anderson. “All of us here at SilverTribe are certainly pulling for him.”
Fowler isn’t the only marquee name who will compete at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Arizona State product and fan favorite Phil Mickelson, reigning FexEx Cup champion Brandt Snedeker and defending Masters champ Bubba Watson are all scheduled to compete.
