Buzz Builds For Phelps-Watson Pro-Am Pairing At Phoenix Open
Michael Phelps will pair with Bubba Watson in today's Annexus Pro-Am at the PGA Tour Waste Management Phoenix Open, and tournament Chair Tom Altieri said that "the buzz already is building." The pro-am's attendance record of 58,000 "could fall" (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 1/30). Phelps has signed an endorsement deal with Ping and will play custom-fit clubs both today and in the upcoming season of Golf Channel's "The Haney Project." Watson is also a Ping endorser. Phelps: "My driver is painted with a little bit of gold. I have 'Phelps 22' on them" (GOLF.com, 1/29).
