It was an eventful final round at the Farmers Insurance Open for Michael Thompson. He carded a remarkable seven birdies under difficult breezy conditions Sunday afternoon. They were balanced by five bogeys but ultimately his two under par 70 was tied for the seventh best round of the day. It moved him to six under par for the tournament which was good enough for a T11. It was by far Michael's best finish of the young 2014-2015 PGA Tour season.
For the second straight day, Michael took advantage of the four par 5's at Torrey Pines South. He birdied all four of them on Sunday. The strong finish moved Michael up to 121st on the money list and 145th on the FedexCup points list.
This week he moves up the coast to the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on the beautiful Monterrey Peninsula in central California.
