Final Hole Leads to Missed Cut

by Roz Roberts III

Sometimes golf can be cruel.  Poised to make his third cut in a row with a single hole to play, Michael Thompson made a triple bogey on the par 4 18th hole to miss the cut by two shots at the Mayakoba Classic in Cancun yesterday.  He ended up finishing the tournament at 2 over par.

The morning players scored well in the second round as the wind was a little more subdued but as the wind picked up throughout the day, so did the scores.  The wind was forecast to die down a bit for Round 3 being held today.

On his return from Mexico, Thompson will be looking to get into the field of the Honda Classic which is held in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida at the PGA National resort and Spa.  He is currently the sixth alternate for the tournament so if six players drop out he would get in.  Rather than waiting around, he's planning to play in the Monday Qualifier where the top four finishers will get into the field.
