FBR Open has more than 500,000 Spectators

The FBR Open is known for its crowds. Even though Sunday was Super Bowl Sunday, the crowds came. 93,475 fans came today and set a new record for the Sunday crowd. The total number of fans for the event was 507,990 .. which was short of last year's total crowd.

The 2008 event will also end on Super Bowl Sunday, even though the Super Bowl will be played in nearby Glendale, AZ.

The 16th hole provides a stadium-like atmosphere for players. Those who knock it stiff are cheered, those who do not will be rattled by thousands of boos. Long driver Bubba Watson was booed Sunday, but was prepared having visors to throw to the fans in the stands.
