All the streakers, swimmers, and lunatics from the 2023 Waste Management Open

The People’s Open never fails to disappoint in terms of drunken disorderly behavior. We have the highlights.

For one week a year, TPC Scottsdale turns into the World’s Largest Frat Party when the Waste Management Open rolls into Phoenix.

It seems insane to hold a sporting even where the total purse is $20 million in front of over 150,000 drunken lunatics, but it’s just four days out of a year-long golf season, and man it can be fun.

Of course there are some people that things too far. Normally people that interrupt sporting events by running out on the field or court during play should be chastised. Someone could get hurt out there, and it’s attention seeking for all the wrong reasons.

But at the WMO, we’re almost OK with it? Golf moves slow anyway (just don’t touch or hit a golfer), so just make sure you’re entertaining before you get trespassed off the grounds for an extended period of time.

Here’s a round-up of all the drunken degenerates we can find from the 2023 Waste Management Open.

And here’s his mug shot...of course.

And we’ll add more of the madness from behind the ropes as we see it here.
