Larry Fitzgerald, the recipient of the Arizona Cardinals, announced that he will be returning for the 2020 season.

The Waste Management Phoenix Open announced this week that Fitzgerald will play in the Annexus Pro-Am on January 29th.


The Pro Football Hall by Famer Emmitt Smith, the country musician Dierks Bentley, the former Coyotes captain Shane Doan, the Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley and the former pro golfer Lorena Ochoa are expected for the Pro-Am.

Fitzgerald has played in Pro-Am before.

He was also known as an avid golfer in other contexts and landed at the top with his sporting skills.

Fitzgerald once sunk a hole-in-one when he played with President Barack Obama. He and the former golf player of the US state of Arizona as well as the current PGA tour player Jon Rahm were once subjects of the popular golf channel show Feherty.

The full list of Pro-Am participants and their start times will be announced on January 29. The players begin their round with start times between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.

The festival week of the Phoenix Open takes place from January 27th to February 2nd. This year the PGA Tour takes place for the 85th time.
