With every passing year, the rowdiness and bizarreness of the WM Phoenix Open increase multifold. But this year, the craziness seems to have increased beyond measure. Why, you may wonder? Well, keep reading, as it turns out bad weather was not the only bizarre thing that happened at the fan-favorite event this year.

From becoming accident-prone following a fan’s unfortunate fall on the greens to now a fan openly committing public indecency, the event’s audience seems to know no bounds.  This new low manifested itself as a viral video of a fan pissing himself in the open during the event. The fan seemed to be in an extremely drunken position.

Yes, you heard that right. An extremely drunken fan was witnessed sitting on a chair near a compost bin on the greens with a bottle in hand and urinating himself. Weirdly enough, the people around him did not seem to notice it, as seen in the video. Possibly because weirdness has become the new norm when associated with the People’s Open.

However, the wasted fan could not go unseen in the eyes of social media. The online fans were not as full of mercy as the offline ones. So how did the golf world react?

Here are some of the reactions:

An angry fan was quick to point out how this is not their definition of party and even put the blame on the state of Arizona for this public indecency.

A fair share of fans were quick to hint at the “sloppy drunkenness” that has become the norm at the Waste Management Open. While some criticized the extreme level of craziness, others were quick to add a ‘d’ to ‘Waste’ in the event name and turn it into “Wasted Management.”

This disgusting incident even acted as a reason enough to change a fan’s mind about visiting TPC Scottsdale. It is safe to say that the increased drunkenness is costing the PGA Tour a fair share of ticket money.

Pointing at the presented situation’s weird nature, a fan made a joke stating the WM Phoenix needs to do what its name suggests better.

Adding to the ongoing jokes in the comments section, a fan was quick to compare the drunken fan’s act of pissing himself to that of a leaking roof.

I, Daiemah Malik, have loved writing for as long as I can remember. It started with practicing poetry in front of the mirror, eventually translating into my passion for writing at EssentiallySports. The values that the sport of golf has instilled in my writing are truly incomparable, and because of it, writing currently tops my to-do list on a dull day, coming over even my love for indulging in spirited debates on anything and everything, including my hidden forte, politics.
