Throughout the entire PGA Tour, there is no golf tournament like the WM Phoenix Open. The Phoenix Open is the Super Bowl meets Mardi Gras of people watching.
Every year, women get on their boots and tight and/or low cut sexy outfits and head to Scottsdale’s TPC Golf Course in hopes of landing a wealthy golf watcher, celebrity, or corporate sponsor CEO caliber man. Ladies, hold onto your husbands and boyfriends. But there’s hope. With individual days’ attendance hitting 50-100,000 people, you will find there are good singles with good values. Keep reading!
I’ve attended hundreds, actually thousands of events looking for Mr. and Miss Rights for very eligible single men and women since creating SPIES – an executive-search style matchmaking firm in 1994. SPIES stands for Single Professional Introductions for the Especially Selective. The results we’ve obtained – SPIES 95% success rate – is because we’re constantly at the best events, and admittedly sometimes not the best events – we don’t know until we get there, looking for love.
Why is it easier to find good single men than good single women at the Phoenix Open?
It’s easier to spot good single men during the day at the WM Phoenix Open than at night at the Birds Nest and than it is to spot good single women at either. The good single men are the ones watching the golf! Some are also entertaining customers and vendors. Some bring their kids and have a blast inside the Expo Tent and walking around the course.
If you look hard, there are nice, pretty and normal single women at the Open. You just have to look harder to find them amidst so many girls in catch-a-man’s-attention outfits and high heels before you spot a couple nurses or school teachers who stand out because they don’t stand out, who’ve ventured into the treacherous waters of the Open for a day of fun.
We’re compiling our latest SPIES Best Place to Meet Single Men and Single Ladies. The WM Phoenix Open PGA Golf Tournament is #1 by far! Add in the Coors Light Birds Nest and it snags #2. You can go to either one without ever seeing golf!
This week is the 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open PGA Golf Tournament. With 400,000-600,000 previous years’ weekly visitor counts, it’s become known as “The Greatest Show on Grass”…for what happens on the fairways and even more for the business networking, partying and girl and guy watching that happens in the corporate skyboxes and party tents alongside it.
At the end of each day’s golf, Wednesday through Saturday, there’s the Coors Light Birds Nest huge entertainment tent with scantily clad, mostly 20-something female servers who could give Hooter’s a run for their money. It took some digging to find the lineup of entertainment at the 2012 Phoenix Open Coors Light Bird’s Nest. I couldn’t find it on their fancy new iPhone app. That’s another new addition.
Mobile phones now allowed at the WM Phoenix Open
You are now allowed to keep in touch with the office and your family and bring in your iPhones and Androids and you don’t have to hide them in your socks or underwear (their words). There are restrictions on their site. We’ll see who pays attention to it. At least, please turn your ringers off.
The Thunderbirds have donated $75,529,794 to Arizona Charities!
Millions of dollars, $4,053,962 in 2011 alone, have been donated to Arizona charities via the Phoenix Open by the Thunderbirds – Arizona’s most prestigious philanthropic man club. They maintain 55 Active Thunderbirds who, with the help of Life Thunderbirds (aka Lifebirds, men who are retired from active status after years of backbreaking work, month in and month out, for this huge annual event, on their 45th birthdays into Lifebird status), have raised millions of dollars for charities as hosts of the 76 year Phoenix Open! Congratulations!
Per their own website, Thunderbirds Charities supports “the courageous athletes of the Special Olympics, youngsters of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Scottsdale, Phoenix and East Valley and the affiliated agencies of the Valley of the Sun United Way.”
“Why bring sand to the beach? The Birds Nest is not for first dates.” — Matchmaker Roseann Higgins
One girl told me she has a first date at the Coors Light Birds Nest. (Not with a SPIES client.) How romantic. Music so loud you can hardly talk and thousands of single men and women on the hunt or being the hunted. I asked, “Why bring sand to the beach?” Maybe if you’ve been dating awhile, listening to the Goo Goo Dolls and seeing friends you haven’t seen since last year or in several years, could be a blast. A first date at the Phoenix Open Birds Nest is a true test of any visual man’s ability to stay focused on you and too soon to be testing. Good luck!
I’ll be at the Phoenix Open all week, starting with tonight’s Opening Night Tuesday Night Fever, searching for new single men and women who might be great dates for SPIES’ clientele.
We pass on gold diggers at the Open (or anywhere). Millionaires don’t have a problem finding them on their own...
People who work hard all year do and should plan to come spend a beautiful day outside on the golf course having a little fun and reconnecting with friends they may not have seen in years. I love every time I see some of the 45,000 people I’ve met in our community of 3 million residents since starting this company. And yes, if you’re a veteran Phoenix Open attendee, you know that among the thousands of attendees each day, you will find a prevalent presence of amazon blond and brunette gold diggers. They are ineligible for my matchmaking services because successful men can find girls who want their money free and this is not the Millionaire Matchmaker TV show. If you want to “meet my millionaires” (what she says on the show) and I get wind of it? “Bye bye! You’re free. And you’re on your own.” By 8 or 9 pm every night, the Birds Nest can become toxic with extreme partiers – also given a pass by this matchmaker. So, you may want to go early and get out! Plenty of tournament and early Birds Nest goers leave for nearby Scottsdale venues who host special parties for Phoenix Open attendees. Prime Bar at Scottsdale Quarter shared on Twitter they will offer a free entree or beverage with your Phoenix Open ticket.
If I haven’t seen you lately, you may enjoy learning SPIES is doing quite well! We’ve averaged introducing a marriage every six weeks since opening our doors in 1994. Through hard work and determination. As alluded to earlier, 95% of the people we introduce want to see each other again. And again. And again!
SPIES has become known for it’s unique search methods – in a good way. We’ve given back and raised over $200,000 for Phoenix area charities while out looking for special men and women to date our clientele.
Our private clientele want a relationship and to be done with serial dating the wrong ones they meet on their own. My job is finding one-in-a-millions at these events for especially selective single men and single women who might be too busy or bad at choosing the right mate or the right dates without some professional assistance. I go to more events and meet more people than they, or nearly anyone, has the time to. And I love my job!
If you’re not in love by the end of the best Arizona event to meet singles all year, take action and call me!
So, if you don’t fall in love this week at the WM Phoenix Open, perhaps you should check out SPIES matchmaking success stories and come in and see what we can do for you. Or maybe you have a terrific single friend you want to find someone special? I’m here. You can call me personally and ask me anything before hiring us.
Thanks for reading and stopping by. If you go to the Phoenix Open, look for the 6′ blond in tennis shoes. I hope to see you soon!
