SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Attendance at the just completed Phoenix Open in Scottsdale was the lowest in a decade.

Crowds at the 75th Open were down 9.4 percent from a year ago with the event drawing just shy of 426,000 for golf week at the TPC Scottsdale. Attendance Saturday, normally the busiest day, was 121,221, down 26 percent from a year ago.

Besides the weather, the Phoenix Open was competing with the gold medal hockey game at the Winter Olympics Sunday.

The Phoenix Open moves back to its late January start for the next two years, but organizers hope to lobby the PGA for a late February start after that.

Hunter Mahan defeated Rickie Fowler by a stroke Sunday for his second PGA Tour victory and a check worth $1.08 million.

Scores Sunday from the $6 million Phoenix Open at the 7,216-yard, par-71 TPC Scottsdale course (a-denotes amateur):
