Waste Management Phoenix Open reaction: PGA Tour fans slammed as 'totally out of control'

The WM Phoenix Open is known as The People's Open.

Some of those people were out of control at the 2024 event, which concluded Sunday at TPC Scottsdale.

And some pro golfers sounded off on it after the event.

Byeong Hun An, who finished tied for 66th at 1-under for the tournament was especially harsh in his remarks about the fan behavior, taking to social media to blast this year's tournament.

In response to a post asking what people thought of Saturday at The WM Phoenix Open, An replied: "S---shows. Totally out of control on every hole."

He wasn't done.

An called out fans for yelling before golfers hit the ball and expressed his disappointment in other unruly fan behavior in a series of posts.

An got into it with some people on social media in posts that weren't suitable for print.

He wasn't the only golfer to express their frustration with the environment at the Open, which had been praised in previous years, but seemed to do off the deep end over the weekend.

Zach Johnson and Billy Horschel called out fans at the event, with Johnson saying: " I think the Thunderbirds probably need to do something about it. I'm assuming they're ashamed. Because at some point, somebody's either gonna really, really get hurt or worse."
