PGA Tour: Fowler tied for lead after suspended first round

Rickie Fowler is tied for the Waste Management Open lead with Shane Lowry and Hideki Matsuyama with six-under-par 65s in a first round that was suspended because of darkness. Round one will resume at 7:30 a.m. MST, and round two will begin as scheduled.

Fowler, the winner of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship just two weeks ago and No. 4 in the World Ranking, had six birdies and an eagle.

"I love this event, and I definitely embrace the crowd, the atmosphere," Fowler said. "You can definitely use it to your advantage if you're playing well and kind of feed off the crowd's energy."

Brandt Snedeker, the winner of the Farmers Insurance Open on Monday, is in contention again, having shot a four-under 67. He is tied for sixth with Danny Lee, defending champion Brooks Koepka, James Hahn and Greg Owen.

Phil Mickelson, a three-time winner of this tournament, shot a two-under 69 and is tied for 31st, four shots off the lead. His round included a triple bogey on the par-4 fifth hole.

Anirban Lahiri and Bryce Molder are at five under par, one shot off the lead. Molder still has two holes to play in the first round.
