At this week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open, fans and players alike are being treated to a truly unique golf tournament. The theme is to raise awareness of how everyone can reduce waste and recycle basically anything, including golf balls.

Another example of how tournament designers are adding a bit of personality to the event resides on the 18th hole.
Well, floating in that hole’s lake, that is.
I wonder what Rodney Dangerfield has to say about this…
Over 140,000 golf balls were used to make that Waste Management logo, and as the time lapse video shows, tournament employees had to go through a painstakingly slow process to make it happen.
A second floating design was used on the 15th hole at TPC Scottsdale, this time consisting of 75,000 recycled golf tees. Pretty cool stuff.
