The WM Phoenix Open is home to one of the most iconic Par 3s in professional golf.

There's nothing that unique about the hole itself, it's a pretty straightforward shot, but it's the atmosphere that makes it so memorable. TPC Scottsdale builds stadium seating around the hole for the event and it's the only hole all year where golfers actually encourage the loud noise and cheers as they prepare for their shot.

Because of the party-like atmosphere, there's no moment more electric than win a golfer records a hole-in-one at the 16th hole.

So, will it happen again this year? We can take a look at the odds to determine the likelihood and even place a bet on it if you feel so inclined.

It's a near 50/50 coin flip for whether or not a hole-in-one will be recorded at the event, so let's take a look at the history of holes-in-one at the event to determine if it's a bet we should make. Let's remember this bet is for more than just the iconic 16th hole. There are three other Par 3s at TPC Scottsdale.

Dating. back to 1987, there have been 32 holes-in-one during the WM Phoenix Open. There has also been at least one in four of the last five years including two in 2022 and three in 2020.

Based on the frequency of an ace being scored during this even, I think the "yes" presents some nice value at -120 odds.

Pick: Hole-in-one YES (-120)
