Waste Management Phoenix Open 2012: Ryan Palmer Leads, Phil Mickelson Lurking Close Behind

Round 1 of the Phoenix Open didn't quite get completed on time, with play suspended due to darkness, but the majority of players got through their rounds. The first round will resume on Friday morning, early enough for the second round to tee off on time. Ryan Palmer leads the field at seven-under par, with some big names close behind him.

Bubba Watson sits at five-under par through 15 holes and will complete his round early in the morning. Phil Mickelson finished his round at three-under, and Dustin Johnson also sits at three-under after having completed all 18 holes. Some players have as many as six holes left to play on Friday before they complete their rounds.

Some big names had less luck than Watson, Mickelson and Johnson on the first day. Stewart Cink shot 12-over, while Y.E. Yang also struggled a bit and came in at two-over par. Check out the full leaderboard here.
