Haas Jumps Out to Early Lead
Thursday marked the start of tournament play at the 2018 Waste Management Phoenix Open, where a near-record crowd came to see a world-class professional field bring the heat to TPC Scottsdale.
Competition was tight during round one, but after the dust settled, Bill Haas found himself in the driver’s seat after firing a 7-under-par 64 that included a sizzling start with birdies on five of his first seven holes. Five players sit two shots off the lead at 5-under including Billy Horschel, Bryson DeChambeau, Chesson Hadley, Chris Kirk and two-time runner-up Rickie Fowler.
Groupings will be the same for Friday’s round, with tee times starting at 7:20 a.m. Click below to see the full list of pairings.
