Phoenix Open Is TV Ready with Endurant Colorants

Feb 02, 2021

"The Greatest Show on Grass"

As TPC Scottsdale prepared for the Waste Management Phoenix Open beginning February 1, Geoponics did its part to get the course TV-ready with Endurant turf colorants.

The course is one of many to choose Endurant early in the colorants' availability on the market, more than 10 years ago, due to Endurant's natural tone, non-toxic ingredients and staying power. Endurant is made with organic pigments and powerful binders to keep color on the grass without the overuse of water and harsh chemicals. (For more on the history, see a previous blog interview with a former TPS Scottsdale superintendent here.)

What's giving TPC Scottsdale that particular gorgeous green this year?

"The People's Open" uses a combination of Endurant Fairway and Endurant Turf Enhancer. Endurant FW is a paint and Endurant TE is a pigment. Each colorant has its own unique benefits and tone. Endurant FW was originally formulated for fairways, giving the name, and TE is formulated for actively growing grass.  TE enhances existing pigment and FW adds a rich, dark green to either dormant or non-dormant grass. The event's Stadium course is now TV ready. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event will not host hundreds of thousands of people this year, but will still be a sizable event with an even larger TV-viewing audience. The event is scheduled to air on GOLF and NBC Thursday through Sunday. Organizers laude the event this year and past years:
"'The People’s Open' was named the Tournament of the Year by the PGA TOUR four times in the past six years (2014, 2015, 2018, 2019) to acknowledge the tournament’s legendary status as one the most unique events in golf. The 2021 edition will mark the 86th playing of the event (one of the five oldest events on the PGA TOUR) and the 12th as the WM Phoenix Open."
Geoponics is proud that their Endurant line is trusted for use during the most prestigious events, as well as the most personal, including weddings of all sizes. TPC Scottsdale, Waste Management and Phoenix Open leaders are also priding themselves-- as does Geoponics-- in efforts to be better environmental stewards.
Specifically, Waste Management has led this Phoenix Open as the largest zero waste event in the world!
