The first round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open is in the books.

Round 2 ramps up Friday morning.

While many eyes were fixed on Rory McIlroy’s WMPO debut, it’s Matthew NeSmith and Mark Hubbard who sit atop the leaderboard at 8-under (63).

Hubbard finished with eight birdies, while NeSmith added six and an eagle on No. 13, the fourth hole of his round. He also had this near-ace on No. 16.

As for McIlroy, the Irishman got off to a rocky start, double bogeying his first hole of the day (No. 10) before following it up with a bogey on the 11th.

His round could probably be encapsulated by his play on the scaled-down 16th. After missing the green on the right, McIlroy responded with a chip-in for birdie.

He did manage to get it back on the tracks, making birdie on three of the next five holes. McIlroy sits tied for 48th. He’ll tee it up Friday at 12:20 p.m. with Daniel Berger and Xander Schauffele. Schauffele’s currently tied for fifth at 5-under (66).

Arizona State alum Jon Rahm heads into Round 2 after firing a 68 (3-under) that included an impressive 54-foot putt for birdie on the opening hole. He’s tied for 21st.

Fellow ASU alum Matt Jones sits tied with Rahm, while Chez Reavie is tied for 37th after shooting a 69 (2-under).

Rahm’s playing partner for the first two rounds, Justin Thomas, is right there with him at 1-under. The group, which also includes Harris English (1-over), tees off on the back nine at 7:50 a.m.

Here’s a look at the Round 2 tee times:
