It was deja vu all over again during the first round of the McGladry Classic for Michael Thompson.
He's competed in the McGladrey three times and he has shot 65 in the first round every time. Today's 65 has him tied for first.
Today's round was highlighted by a red hot putter. He drained birdies from long range including one from from 19' 11" and another from 40'5". He was +3.517 in strokes gained putting on the day.
Michael will look to keep the mojo going in Friday's second round. He'll once again be playing with Boo Weekly and Nick Watney. The trio will tee off from the tenth hole at 12:45pm ET.
