Michael Thompson had a great finish in the 4th round of the Justin Timberlake Open in Las Vegas, Nevada. He shot 2 under for the final round, -11 overall to finish T-13th. He earned an additional $72,500 to move up to 59th on the money list for the year. His strong finish was in no doubt due to his stellar performance on the back nine. He shot an amazing 16 under for the tournament on the second half of the course. Hole 16 was his best hole, which he played at 5 under for the tournament, including an eagle in the 4th round.
I also heard that he and his wife Rachel recently bought their first home together. Congratulations to them both, it was well earned. I"m sure Michael, Rachel and their cat Bubbles will enjoy settling in to the new digs!
Michael will be taking this week off and then will be back in action for the McGladrey Classic, where he finished 3rd last year. See you then!
