First-round play of the 2024 WM Phoenix Open will resume at 9:15 a.m. MST, with a 1.75-hour delay due to frost on Friday after a soggy Thursday where play was suspended for more than three hours.

On Thursday, the initial suspension came down at 12:32 p.m. and play did not resume until 4:02 p.m. After the skies dried up and play resumed, darkness suspended play again at 6:10 p.m.

Sahith Theegala is the leader after Thursday play. Theegala finished -6 after shooting a first-round 65.

Theegala has led at the conclusion of Thursday play twice in the past three years. In 2022, he was -7 through 16 holes when play was suspended due to darkness.

At the 2022 WM Phoenix Open, Theegala also had the lead after the second and third round before finishing the tournament tied for third.

Andrew Novak is currently in second at -5 through nine holes. Shane Lowry and S.H. Kim are two strokes back and tied for third after shooting an opening-round 67. Three-time major champion Jordan Spieth was able to complete his round and is tied for fifth at -3.

Two-time defending champion Scottie Scheffler is -1 through six holes. Scheffler was part of a group with Hideki Matsuyama (-1) and Wyndham Clark (E) that did not begin play until after the suspension was lifted.
