WM Phoenix Open to wrap up today with free admission for spectatorsPosted: Updated:
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Mark Wilson had a two-stroke lead in the Phoenix Open when play was suspended last night because of darkness.
Wilson was wearing a yellow visor and green shirt in support of his beloved Packers, and the Wisconsin player broke a tie with Tommy Gainey with a 15-foot birdie putt on the par-3 12th. Gainey three-putted for a bogey on the hole.
About nine hours of playing time overall has been lost to frost and frozen turf, forcing the event to wrap up today at TPC Scottsdale.
Monday's play was expected to get under way at 9 .m.. Six holes were remaining in the fourth round. Twenty-nine players, including several at the top of the leaderboard, needed to complete their rounds.
Admission is free for spectators. Limited concessions will be open, but no alcohol will be available.
