Later Super Bowl could push back Phoenix Open

A later Super Bowl could mean moving the Phoenix Open to President's Day weekend.

Tournament chairman Mike McQuaid says the PGA Tour likes the Phoenix Open's spot in the schedule at the same time as Super Bowl weekend.

The NFL is considering adding two more games, which would push the big game into mid-February.

The Open has been weather-challenged the past two years and a later start for the Open is no guarantee of better weather, but it would mean more daylight to play golf if frost holds up the tournament.

The 76th Open was extended into Monday because of frost delays at the TPC Scottsdale the first three days of the tournament.
