SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Even the famously no-holds-barred Phoenix Open has a limit on how much debauchery is allowed on a golf course.

The tournament, which is at TPC Scottsdale, stopped allowing fans onto the premises around 2 p.m. Saturday because it was too crowded. They also briefly stopped alcohol sales at several locations around the course, hoping to slow down the party.

It's the first time the Phoenix Open has had to, at least briefly, turn away ticket holders.

The huge crowds came to Scottsdale despite less than ideal weather conditions.
