The final day of the 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale was the cherry on top of a record-setting weekend.

The event broke its own record Saturday at 201,003 after drawing a Friday-record 160,415.

Hideki Matsuyama defeated Rickie Fowler in a four-hole playoff to win the tournament.
