One of the hottest artists in all of music is going to the rowdiest hole in all of golf.
Number 16 at TPC Scottsdale, home of the Waste Management Open, is probably the best thing that professional golf has going for it (besides The Masters). Fans are usually expected to be quiet at golf tournaments, but this fully-enclosed Par 3 goes against the grain, and golf fans absolutely love it.
Stands, suites, and seating surround the unique hole out in the desert, giving it the nickname of “Stadium Hole,” and allowing for a high-energy, party-like atmosphere for the entire weekend that the Waste Management occurs.
Golfers that come into this hole often pump up the crowd before they hit their tee shots, and a great shot (and sometimes even a hole-in-one) blows the figurative roof off the place.
There’s a lot of etiquette in golf, but on this hole, that all gets thrown out the window, and beer often gets thrown onto the course. If you’ve never seen it, here you go:
And if you are going to set up grandstands to hold 20,000 rowdy people, it only makes sense to host a concert out on the golf course too right?
Organizers of the Waste Management Open smartly decided to add on an event before the golf officially gets started called the “Concert in the Coliseum,” which turns the stadium hole at TPC Scottsdale into a rowdy concert venue.
The first time it ever took place, Thomas Rhett and Old Dominion played at the 16th hole, and then the following year, Maroon 5 and Walker Hayes took the stage (or golf course?) to play in front of the thousands of golf fans.
And now, in arguably the event’s biggest get yet, music superstar and future country music artist Post Malone will have the honors of playing the “Concert in the Coliseum.” Two days before the players arrive for practice rounds, Posty will be rocking the unique music venue on February 3rd of next year.
Shoutout to whoever made this unofficial graphic, it’s phenomenal:
The 16th hole can certainly get loud for golf, so it should have no problem doing the same for Post Malone. He might just be the perfect artist to encapsulate the vibes of the “Party Par 3,” and if he can someone incorporate a golf shot into his performance, I’m sure the place would go crazy.
