The Third annual Thompson Invitational wraps up tomorrow. With the Thompson Invitational, Michael has tried to put together a great junior golf tournament that allows Arizona junior golfers a great venue to hone their skills and advance to national tournaments.
Michael Thompson is in Tucson, Arizona this weekend to host the Third Annual Thompson Invitational. The tournament is put on by the Junior Golf Association of Arizona and is limited to a field of 60 golfers between the ages of 13 and 18. Their will be both Boys and Girls divisions.
Michael Thompson will be playing at the Travelers Championship this week. He tees off at 12:40pm ET with Stuart Appleby and Kyle Stanley. Here are all the links you'll need to follow Michael's round online.
After a short rain delay interrupted Thursday's first round at the Fedex St. Jude Classic, darkness fell before it could be completed. As a result, Friday's second round started late and than a major rain storm halted play for round two at 1:03pm CT. Michael Thompson was scheduled to tee off at 1:10pm so his golf day only consisted of a warm up session. He'll hope to start start round 2 at 7:10am CT on Saturday morning with playing partners Kevin Streelman and Charles Howell III.
Michael is currently even par and is tied for 56th which is where the cut currently sits with roughly half the field through most of their second rounds.
After failing to qualify for the US Open earlier this week, Michael Thompson has put his focus and energy into getting ready for this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic being held at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee.
Michael will be grouped with Kevin Streelman and Charles Howell III for the first two rounds. They tee off Thursday morning at 7:40am CT (8:40am ET) from the first hole.
After Friday's rough day on the greens, Michael Thompson righted the ship at the Memorial Tournament and shot a couple of steady, if not spectacular, rounds over the weekend to finish in a tie for 37th.
Monday brings one of the most exciting day in the golfing calendar as nearly half the field of this year's US Open at Pinehurst will be filled at sectional qualifying tournaments across the country. Michael will be competing at the Columbus, Ohio venue where 120 golfers will compete for 16 spots. Golfers will compete in two rounds at two different courses. The Columbus qualifier will utilize the Brookside Golf & Country Club and Scioto Country Club. Michael will be playing alongside Colt Knost and Cameron Percy.
