The PGA Tour moves out of California and on to Arizona and the loudest hole in golf, the 16th hole at the TPC Scottsdale (pictured above). In last year's tournament, Mark Wilson took home the title; can he go back-to-back in this tournament to have 2 straight years with 2 wins on the West Coast Swing?

Brandt Snedeker will also look to build off of his momentum as he tees it up this week. On the other end of things, Kyle Stanley is also in the field, it will be interesting to see if he can get over his collapse at the end of the tournament at Torrey Pines. Other big names in this field include Phil Mickelson, Webb Simpson, Dustin Johnson, Ian Poulter, Keegan Bradley, Matt Kuchar, Fred Couples, Rickie Fowler, Angel Cabrera, Nick Watney, Bubba Watson, Gary Woodland, and Bill Haas.

I am excited about this tournament. I really like the 16th hole concept. I wish they had something like that on a east coast tournament. I would be there in a heart beat.

This is always a fun event. I loved it a couple years ago when the Super Bowl was also in Phoenix (or where ever the NFL stadium is down there). I'll be tuned in all week!

This will really be a tough one with such a solid field of players and so many rookies playing veteran golf right now. How's the weather looking for this one so far?

It's one of those bucket list things I reckon, cause I would love to hang out there for a weekend too. That's the way I would like to watch golf. Boo'ing dudes when they miss the green and stuff.

Can't wait for this one. You gotta love 16 - one of the most entertaining holes in golf. I have some dark horses this week, and some solid stalwarts. Hope they perform.
