STORY

COMMUNITY

As for Markham’s role as Chairman for the WM Open he 
jokes: “I think they ran out of people to ask.” 

/// 

Since 1937, 

the Thunderbirds have worked to host the Phoenix Open 
with extraordinary benefits to the community. Last year’ 
s tournament hit $9.06 million and the organization has 
raised over $111 million total since inception. 

/// 

“I love 

going to the tournament. I have so much admiration for the 
group and for how much they have raised for charity,” he 
says. “This is a great group and this is such an honor.” 

/// 

With 2016’ s phenomenal attendance of 618,365, Markham 
is excited about the prospects for 2017. “I am cautiously 
optimistic. We have sold more tickets year-to-date than 
last year,” he says. “We continue to push the envelope and, 
if the weather holds, we hope to break all the records.” 

/// 

Markham’ s role as he sees it is to build on the fine work 
of his predecessors to create a stronger tournament each 
successive year. “From the Bird’ s Nest to our hospitality 
platforms, you can’ t become stagnant -- you must accept 
and adopt change,” he says.
