Thompson More Than Holding His Own

by Roz Roberts III

Michael Thompson followed his seven under par first round at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions with a solid two under par second round to hang around the top of the leaderboard.  His -9 total after two rounds has him in a tie for 5th.  He is just four shots off the lead of Zach Johnson.  His round was highlighted with a remarkable 99 foot birdie chip from the rough on the eighth hole.  The video can be seen below.  His round could have been even better if his golf ball had been a little more cooperative.  He had a couple of putts all but fall into the cup before they decided to lip out.

Michael will be paired with Webb Simpson for the third round.  They will tee off at 12:19pm local time.
