Super Bowl No Match for World’s Best-Attended Golf Tournament

The FBR Open set a new Sunday attendance record. The Phoenix area might just be the center of the golf universe.

More fans attended the final round of the FBR Open in Scottsdale than the Super Bowl in Miami. (There’s no truth to rumors that Prince will be performing at the 16th hole next year.)

Super Bowl Paid Attendance: 74,512
FBR Open Sunday Attendance: 93,475

For the week, the FBR Open drew 507,990 golf fans, shy of last year’s record of 536,767.
