Waste Management Phoenix Open Tracker

Reavie’s par putt just slips by as it hits the left edge and trickles on. That’s bogey. Woodland has a tap-in for par to close out this win.

UPDATE NO. 9 (5:52 p.m. ET): Once again, we have a playoff. Reavie finishes birdie-birdie to make it happen. It included this brilliant 21-footer for birdie at the last.

UPDATE NO. 8 (5:39 p.m. ET): Chez Reavie ends up just short of the green at the par-4 17th and he chips up within a few feet. After he cozies that short putt in for birdie, Reavie is now 17 under.

He needs a birdie at 18 to match Woodland and force a playoff. Phil Mickelson is now officially out of contention as he had to lay up on 18. That took away the chance for eagle he needed to tie Woodland.

UPDATE NO. 7 (5:30 p.m. ET): Phil Mickelson birdies 17 to move to 16 under. That’s two straight. But he needs to hole out for eagle at 18 to match Woodland’s 18 under and have any chance.

Mickelson is in the left rough off the tee at 18. He’ll have to hole out from there.

UPDATE NO. 6 (5:10 p.m. ET): Gary Woodland birdies 15, 16 and 17 to move to 18 under and a one-shot lead. This is getting exciting.

Speaking of that … PHIL!

UPDATE NO. 5 (3:40 p.m. ET): A tough back nine Saturday for Justin Thomas, but he finishes eagle-birdie for a closing 66. So he’ll salvage a likely top 15. Still, he led by two at one point Saturday.

UPDATE NO. 4 (3:25 p.m. ET): Gary Woodland and Chez Reavie are now tied for the lead at 16 under.

UPDATE NO. 3 (2:43 p.m. ET): Reavie chips in for par at No. 6 to remain in front. He’s only ahead by one now as Gary Woodland has reached 15 under.

UPDATE NO. 2 (2:30 p.m. ET): Chez Reavie leads by two at 16 under.

Phil Mickelson is just three back, though, after a birdie at No. 6. Rickie Fowler is two back.

UPDATE NO. 1 (12:50 p.m. ET): The final group is off in five minutes.

Nothing too juicy to report from the other groups out there. We’ll keep you up to date throughout the round.
