The Waste Management Open in Phoenix is well-known for being one of the biggest parties in the golf world. However, even this event has limits, as fans quickly found out on Saturday afternoon when tournament organizers suspended alcohol sales.
"On Saturday at the WM Phoenix Open, I observed more chaos in the last eight hours than I have cumulatively in the last decade of my life," golf reporter Claire Rogers wrote.
Rogers continued: "I saw men bleeding from the face, people napping on muddy hills and adults knocking each other over because they couldn't walk straight."
Videos on social media platform X captured the rowdiness of the crowd:

Besides cutting off alcohol to fans, event organizers also closed "entrance gates," which they blamed on "larger than usual crowds."
Due to larger than usual crowds, the WM Phoenix Open entrance gates are temporarily closed and shuttle service to the event is on hold. Shuttle service back to parking lots will remain running.
