2016 has arrived, and as usual the PGA Tour begins the calendar year in Hawaii. Like last year, the wrap around PGA Tour season is already in progress but the new year really marks the start of the heart of the season. This week Michael Thompson and his fellow PGA Tour professionals will be competing in the Sony Open in Hawaii. The Sony Open is known for narrow fairways that routinely average in the top five hardest to hit on Tour. Accuracy off the tee and good putting are rewarded in Honolulu.
Michael tees off his first round on Thursday morning at 11:50am local time (1:50pm PT). He will be grouped with Chad Campbell and Ryo Ishikawa
I'm sorry to say that PGATour.com has discontinued the old ShotTracker website. I always had a love/hate relationship with the site but it allowed me to follow Michael's entire group each round during a tournament in a way that the new leaderboard doesn't. It also allowed me to look at Michael's ShotTracker in a much larger view that I preferred. So going forward you won't be seeing those old ShotTracker links. RIP ShotTracker.
