The event, very popular on the PGA Tour, has attracted 23 of the top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings.
     
Lahiri, who was T-28 in his opening event on the PGA Tour this year at Career Builder Challenge, missed the cut last week in Farmer's Insurance carding two vastly different 80-70 at the tough layout.

Lahiri, who is hanging by a slender thread inside the Top-50 at No. 49, is paired with Ryan Palmer, who was a runner-up at the event last year and fifth in 2013.

Palmer is having a good run with Top-20 in last three events in a row. The third player in the group will be the six-foot-four, Charlie Beljan, who in his seventh starts this season, has missed five cuts, withdrawn once and his only money came from Frys.com where he was T-74, where he made the third round but missed the fourth round cut-off.

The Waste Management Phoenix Open is famous for its 16th hole, which is an iconic stadium-like par 3.

The field includes a bunch of winners this season, Kevin Kisner, Jason Dufner, rookie Smylie Kaufman and Brandt Snedeker besides Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson, Zach Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Rickie Fowler.
