SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – First-round play has resumed in the Phoenix Open after another frost delay that will likely mean a marathon finish to the tournament Sunday.
Only half the field finished the round Thursday following a four-hour morning delay. Play was delayed until just after 11 a.m. Friday – 94 minutes after the scheduled start that was already nearly two hours later than normal.
It was 42 degrees and sunny when play resumed.
Bill Haas, Jason Bohn, Tom Gillis and Champions Tour player Tom Lehman shot 6-under 65s on Thursday to share the lead. Dustin Johnson led the players on the course at 4 under with 13 holes left.
