Contention Rickie Fowler honors Griffin Connell at Phoenix Open

Daniel Berger can get hot in the desert

Rickie Fowler, who is tied for second place at 5-under par after the first round, didn't care for the overall atmosphere at the 16th hole Thursday. "I've been struggling", he said after making five birdies, an eagle, and no bogeys at sun-drenched TPC Scottsdale.

American stars John Rahm and Jordan Spieth head the list of top players taking part in the $8.5 million tournament at TPC Scottsdale in Arizona. With the pressure behind him, he played well enough to win at last week's Farmers Insurance Open, but bowed out of a three-way playoff on the first extra hole.

The other story of the week was the return of Tiger Woods, who despite driving difficulties, still shot 3-under par for the week and finished in a very respectable tie for 23rd place.

One player who will be roared on is the popular three-time champion Phil Mickelson, who went to Arizona State University, as he makes his 29th appearance at the event (a joint record). Got lucky, I kind of hit a bad putt on two, but it hit the back of the cup and went in.

He was, though, very much in the mix a year ago until a last round of 73 saw him slip to 24th after heading into Sunday inside the top 10 and only one behind eventual victor Hideki Matsuyama.

"I'm trying something pretty different, actually", Haas said, "so sometimes when you do something different like that the ball starts rolling a little better and hopefully that will continue". "I haven't really played well this year up until the last day there at Torrey Pines", Matsuyama said.

The par-3 16th hole on the Stadium Course is the only fully enclosed hole on the PGA Tour.

"It was really bad weather; it was cold, ball wasn't going anywhere, and I found it really, really hard", Haas said. Palmer missed the cut in last years Waste Management Phoenix Open, but he was runner-up in 2015 and finished fifth in 2013. If you think this number will reach double figures this week then you can back another one at 11/10.

"Drones are becoming so low-cost and so popular, we are getting ahead of this technology", said Sgt.
