Is there anything better than a sun-filled Friday at the WM Phoenix Open? Yesterday’s weather which postponed play gave way to more hospitable conditions today. That’s better, Mother Nature! Fans who played hooky to see the PGA TOUR’s best were treated to something special today, and something that has only happened four times in tournament history. Current co-leader Nick Taylor fired an 11-under 60 in his first round (started yesterday), good enough to join three-time WM Phoenix Open champions Phil Mickelson and Marc Calcavecchia, as well as Grant Waite as the fourth player to card a 60 at the WM Phoenix Open. Oh, by the way, Phil did it twice.

Weather delays yesterday and frost delays this morning left a host of players out on the golf course and more than a few did not begin their second rounds due to darkness. Taylor and Andrew Novak are currently tied atop the leaderboard at 12-under, but with 11 players within five shots – including two-time defending champion Scottie Scheffler – it’s still anybody’s tournament at TPC Scottsdale.

Second-round play will resume Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. followed by moving-day action after players finish their previous rounds.

Saturday pairings will be available after the completion of the second round.

Saturday is a special day here at TPC Scottsdale – #GreenOut Day. Don’t forget to wear green for the annual day, supporting  title sponsor WM’s efforts to Recycle Right and make the WM Phoenix Open the largest Zero Waste event in the world!

Oh! By the way in case you forgot or you have been living under a rock the past few years, there’s usually a bit of a line at the gate Saturday at the WM Phoenix Open. Plan accordingly. Gates open at 7 a.m. (weather permitting).
