Phoenix Open, lead by Mark Wilson

Mark Wilson was a two-stroke for the Phoenix Open, when play was suspended Sunday because of darkness.
Wearing a yellow visor and a green shirt in support of our beloved Packers, Wisconsin player broke a tie with Tommy Gainey is a 15-foot birdie putt at the par-3 12th. Gainey three putt bogey at the hole.
"I birdied a few holes hard," Wilson said. "The 4-iron I hit on 12 was the best swing of the day, and I rolled in the putt. Have just great.
"It's been a long journey. I mean, four holes of the first day, 28 holes the next day, after four holes and holes of 31 now, and we will make five more tomorrow and see what happens."
Wilson and Gainey was facing a 20-foot birdie putt at the par-5 13th, when they decided it was too dark to complete the hole.
"I was thinking of putting, but it is hard to read, and putt a bit 'silly," said Wilson. "It will be tomorrow morning much easier.
"Someone yelled in my head says" no roll tonight, so when I heard that voice, I said, 'Let's label it. "
Wilson was 18 cents. Gainey was tied for second with Vijay Singh and Jason Dufner. Singh shot a 5-under 66, while Dufner had four holes left.
