Historic Tucson Open Photos

These photos were furnished by the PGA Tour for Starr Pass golf course when it was first opened as a TPC course with the intention of making it the permanent home of the Tucson PGA Tour event. It was played there from 1987 until 1996. Phil Mickelson won there as an amateur in 1991. These photos still hang at Starr Pass.
