Michael Thompson has kept the good golf rolling. He posted a three under par 68 at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship in Columbus, Ohio which has him tied for 13th and only three shots off the lead. This was Michael's fifth straight round in the 60's during these Web.com Tour Finals.
Michael's round was characterized by the same good golf as his victory in Boise: driving accuracy (11 of 14 fairways), good iron play (15 of 18 greens in regulation), and making a few birdie putts along the way. He had four birdies on the day with a lone bogey.
Once again, Michael will be playing with Bryson DeChambeau and Miguel Angel Caballo. They tee off at 12:52pm ET.
