Look at those hats!
It doesn't matter who wins the Waste Management Phoenix Open this year — or any year, for that matter. The truth is that fans come out to the greenest show on grass to drink, eat, and party. Oftentimes, fans are checking out the leaderboards not to see who's ahead in the tournament, but to find out which holes Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson are on. Mickelson and Watson know how to play off the crowd while fans are enjoying the best party of the year.
