Your Old Balls on Display at the Waste Management Open

Dixon Golf will be collecting used golf balls this weekend in ScottsdaleDixon Golf will be holding a recycling event this weekend, Dec. 18-20 at the PGA Tour Superstore on Shea Blvd and the Loop 101 in Scottsdale. The drive will take place during regular business hours.

All the balls collected from the recycling event will go toward the 100,000-plus golf balls Dixon Golf has already collected, and be placed in Waste Management's floating logo on the lake of the 18th Hole at the TPC of Scottsdale for the Waste Management Phoenix Open. All told, the sign will weigh more than seven tons and consist of 144,000 used golf balls.

"It's important for us to help people visualize just how many golf balls are thrown away each year," said Dixon Golf CEO William Carey. "If 144,000 golf balls make a seven ton sign, just imagine how much landfill space the 300 million golf balls that are thrown away each year take up."

The Thunderbirds are providing General Admission tickets to the Waste Management Phoenix Open to the first 100 people each day who donate golf balls.

The PGA Tour Superstore will also be giving each participant a $10 gift certificate to the store. The person who brings in the most balls each day will receive a pair of Member's Club passes to the Open. Second place daily winners will receive Krank Golf drivers, a $500 value.

The person who brings in the most golf balls during the event will win the grand prize, an Athlete's Performance Package, worth $3,500 and a voucher book for $300 worth of Dixon Golf balls. The second place winner will receive an additional pair of Member's Club passes, a Dixon Golf hat and one dozen Dixon Fire golf balls.

A person must bring in a minimum of two dozen golf balls to qualify for any prizes or giveaways.
