|Michael Thompson reacts to his birdie on hole #17 during the second round of the Players Championship|
by Roz Roberts III
Michael Thompson followed his four under par first round at the Players Championship with a one under par 71 to propel him into a tie for tenth after 36 holes. Michael's round was remarkably consistent and his statistics show evidence of that. He hit 13 of 14 fairways (T2 in driving accuracy) and was +2.744 in strokes gained putting (4th). He managed three birdies on the day including one on hole #17 when he sank a 43 foot putt, the longest of anyone on that hole.
