Some came for the golf, some came for the people, but everyone enjoyed the great weather at the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.

Everywhere you turned, there was a sea of thousands of people. 

“I like all the people — a little bit of the golf, and the people watching and just having fun with my friends," attendee Andrea Boltz said.

Saturday was a “green out” for the fans, who wore green to support Waste Management's sustainability efforts. But, really, anywhere you looked you'd find a number of creative outfits.

“We love golf, that’s why we’re out here," said Kyle Bone, who was decked out in a patriotic outfit. "But more than golf, we love the United States of America, and it’s time for us to come together.”

“You have to dress to the nines, that’s for sure," said Taylor Look, whose group of friends came dressed to impress.

Some ditched the heels when they realized how much walking they'd do.

“It’s a lot of walking. My feet just really hurt from all the hills and stuff, and I keep twisting my ankles," Look said.

Amidst the crowds, and the golf, there’s love in the air.

More specifically, at the back of the 18th green, where one couple exchanged wedding vows!

“We figured right here, just say the words to each other with our one friend (whose an ordained minister), why not. We come here every single year. We love it, and it’s all great," Kathleen Ludwig said. 

With little fanfare and just a few simple words of love to one another, this couple can say they’re just married at the Phoenix Open.
