Old Dominion is making a return trip to the Waste Management Phoenix Open after they debuted at the Coors Light Birds Nest in 2019. The group has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands out of Nashville, fusing clever lyrics and an infectious sound. The band’s current single, “I Was on a Boat That Day”, was released in May of 2021 and is the lead single off their fourth studio album Time, Tequila and Therapy, which just dropped on Oct. 8, 2021.
The 2022 WM Phoenix Open will take place Feb. 7-13 at TPC Scottsdale. “The People’s Open” has been named the Tournament of the Year by the PGA TOUR four times in the past seven years (2014, 2015, 2018, 2019) to acknowledge the tournament’s legendary status as one the most unique events in golf. The 2022 edition will mark the 87th playing of the event (one of the five oldest events on the PGA TOUR) and the 13th with Waste Management as title sponsor.
