Frigid Temps Causing Delays At Frosty Phoenix Open

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Tommy Gainey and Mark Wilson topped the Phoenix Open leaderboard Friday, reaching 11 under before second-round play was suspended because of darkness in the frost-delayed tournament that will finish Monday.

Gainey played nine holes in the second round, and Wilson finished 14.

Frost delayed play until just after 11 a.m. — 94 minutes after the scheduled start that was already nearly two hours later than normal.

Only half the field finished the first round Thursday after a four-hour morning delay.

The delays — costing a total of 7 hours, 24 minutes of playing time — pushed more than half of the second round to Saturday. I

In announcing the Monday finish, PGA Tour officials said the cut will remain at the top 70 and ties.
