The Waste Management Phoenix Open is the biggest party on the PGA Tour, and fans attending the third round couldn't wait to get the party started ... quite literally.

Nearly 200,000 people showed up to TPC Scottsdale on Saturday, and some of them showed up well before the gates opened – starting at 4 a.m. local time – hoping to grab a coveted seat inside the stadium surrounding the 16th hole.

When they finally did let the fans in, the race to 16 was on, with the stands filled a full four hours before a shot was hit on the hole.

No one seemed to mind the wait.
