In fact, this is not even the first time a streaker caused a scene at the WM Phoenix Open. According to arizonasports.com, after breaking onto the 17th hole in 2018, the person ended up break dancing and playing in the sand and air golf. Eventually, the security was able to catch him in time, and the way he was punished, the joker of the 2023 Phoenix Open would have a dark future.
