The Greg Norman designed course, El Camaleon showed it's claws on Thursday at the Mayacoba Classic just south of Cancun, Mexico. Scores ranged wildly from Will Claxton's -5 to +12. The holes strongly penalize wayward shots and the strong ocean breezes don't help either. Colorful scorecards were bountiful, and the goal was to keep your Camaleon scorecard blue instead of reddish-orange.
As you can see from Michael's scorecard below, he had a pretty good round, fighting back from several bogeys and getting back to +1 which is on the happy side of the cut line at +2.
He tees it up on Friday along with Vaughn Taylor and Nick Price at 9:10 PST.
Television coverage for the Mayakoba Classic will be exclusively on the Golf Channel. All times are Eastern Time.

Lastly, a quick shout out to the other half of ThompsonTide, Roz, who's laid up recovering from surgery as he had a benign mass removed from his shoulder this morning. Heal fast!
