A Quick Nine: Your intro song for No. 16 at TPC Scottsdale would be...

This week's, 'A Quick Nine,' feature is about as straight-forward as it gets around here, folks. The PGA Tour is at TPC Scottsdale this week for the Waste Management Open, which is home to one of the most exhilarating holes in all of golf -- the par-3 16th.

Completely enclosed by stands and rowdy fans, the 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale -- during Waste Management Open week -- is truly one of a kind.

Players are cheered and jeered throughout the week depending on the result of their tee shot, or the putts they hit on the green.

To add to the rowdiness and overall experience, we wondered: If you were playing in the Waste Management Open and could have your own intro song as you stepped to the 16th tee, which song would it be?

Here are the best answers we received.

9. Hit Me with Your Best Shot by Pat Benatar. In theory, I get the reason why one of our Facebook friends would propose this song. It can easily be applied to golf simple because of its name. However, if this thing were blaring through speakers with that crowd on No. 16... Well, let's just say you'd better hit your best shot!

Facebook fan quote:

"Hit Me With Your Best Shot - Pat Benatar." -- Wayne Ware

8. Wild Thing by The Troggs. This one is absolutely a keeper.

Facebook fan quote:

"Wild Thing!" -- Rusty Nail

7. Notre Dame Victory March by the Notre Dame Marching Band. Maybe they should think about playing this one after a player makes birdie or better.

Facebook fan quote:

"The greatest fight song of all played by America's first and best university band -- THE NOTRE DAME fight song." -- Mary Stuber Mattingly

6. Oh, Oh, Oh by the Golf Boys. If you think for one minute that Ben Crane, Bubba Watson and Rickie Fowler (Hunter Mahan is playing in Qatar this week) won't be hearing this one every time they step to the 16th tee this week, you're out of your mind!

Facebook fan quotes:

"'Oh, Oh, Oh,' by the Golf Boys." -- Trent Groves

"'Oh, Oh, Oh,' all the way!" -- Ryann Farris

5. Sandstorm by Darude. While we'll admit we're not the biggest techno fans around these parts, this is without question one of the greatest, sports, pump-you-up songs of all time.

Facebook fan quotes:

"Sandstorm!" -- Tommy Madden

"Definitely Sandstorm! With waving towels." -- Doug Hart

4. Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N' Roses. A fitting number considering the atmosphere out there.

Facebook fan quotes:

"Welcome to the Jungle." -- Daniel Sandoval

"Welcome to the Jungle." -- Brian Sullivan

3. Shippin' up to Boston by the Dropkick Murphys. Ahhh... Being a New England guy, that's more my style. Although, it does make me remember how disappointing it is that Jonathan Papelbon won't be making his way to the mound from the bullpen for the Sox to this one anymore.

Facebook fan quotes:

"I'm Shipping Up to Boston - Dropkick Murphys. Massachusetts And Irish pride!" -- Chad Sully

"Drop Kick Murphys - Shipping up to Boston." -- Randy Dean

2. Enter Sandman by Metallica. Being a huge Red Sox fan, I'm not a huge fan of this song. After all, it's Yankee closer Mariano Rivera's entrance music from the bullpen.

Facebook fan quotes:

"Enter Sandman by Metallica!" -- Thom Clark

"Enter Sandman." -- Sherri Bradley

1. Eye of the Tiger by Survivor. If this song doesn't pump you up, there's something wrong with you. Rocky! Rocky! Rocky!

Facebook fan quotes:

"Eye of the Tiger." -- Christopher Gotherman

"Eye of the Tiger." -- Danny Crank
