Thursday at the 2024 WM Phoenix Open

Yes, a lot goes on at the WM Phoenix Open before the actual tournament begins, but Thursday marked the official start of the 2024 edition of “The People’s Open.” We’ll put it lightly. It was a little wet today. Play was suspended at 12:32 p.m. due to heavy rains but resumed after a 3.5 hour delay, much to the delight of the best fans in golf. Nearly half the field (66 players) did not finish their first round and will resume round one Friday morning.

WM Phoenix Open fan favorite and rising PGA TOUR star Sahith Theegala is your current round-one leader after firing a 6-under 65. Sound familiar?  If so, you it’s probably because you remember Theegala’s 2022 campaign where he captured the 36 and 54 hole lead – and all of our hearts – and finished T3 as a sponsor exemption. There’s no shortage of competition for Theegala. Andrew Novak is only one back at 5-under after only playing nine holes thanks to an eagle on the Par-5 13th. And both Shane Lowry and S.H. Lee are two back at 4-under par.

Players who did not finish will resume in position at 7:30 a.m. on Friday. Second round tee times will begin after the conclusion of the first round.

Pairings for Friday’s second round will be the same as Thursday’s first round. Those who started on No. 1 tee will start on No. 10 tee and vice versa. Hit the link below to see the full pairings.
