When I turned on the Golf Channel this afternoon to watch the Phoenix Open, one of the first things I heard was that the round likely would need to finish on Friday. That’s because play was delayed for an hour in the morning due to frost.
Nonetheless, Ryan Palmer leads with a -7 64, and Webb Simpson is a stroke behind. The leaderboard shows that Bubba Watson, Spencer Levin and Jason Duffner still have a chance to get into the lead. Watson and Levin are at -5 after 15, and Duffner is at -4 through 13. Bo Van Pelt also is still on the course at -4 through 14. Finally, Seung-Yul Noh is at -4 through 12.
I’d really hate to be one of the guys who has to sit around all night and think about finishing the round in the am, and then turn around and play again later that morning.
