Michael Thompson is headed back to the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, Florida to compete in this year's rendition of the Valspar Championship. The Copperhead Course, a par 71, is unlike most courses in Florida in that it has elevation changes and tree lined fairways to deal with more so than wind and water. Accuracy,both off the tee and into the greens, will be keys to success as the rough is known to be difficult. Length off the tee isn't a major factor either as the course's many dog logs force players to hit less than driver off the tee. Copperhead is typically ranked inside of the top 10 of most difficult courses on the PGA Tour.
Michael is playing the first two rounds with Ben Crane and Brendon Todd. They tee of Thursday morning at 8:45am ET from the 10th hole.
