Ryan Palmer hit only 6 of 14 fairways during the opening round of the Waste Management Open but somehow managed to find a way to put together a 7-under 64 to take a one-shot lead over Webb Simpson on Thursday. Bubba Watson is also in contention at at 5-under, but his round was cut short after just 15 holes due to darkness. A four-hour frost delay forced officials to delay the start of the tournament, leaving 42 players stranded when the sun finally set. Players still left on the course will have to return and finish their rounds at 9:30 a.m. ET on Friday.
