Thompson's First Round in Cancun Highlighted by Strong Finish

by Roz Roberts III

After playing his first 15 holes at a one over par, Michael Thompson finished strong posting a birdie-eagle-par final three holes to finish the first round of the Mayakoba Classic at two under par (69).  The round was good enough to leave Thompson in a tie for 23rd and just three shots off the lead.

As expected, the wind proved to be a challenge as it was blowing steadily across the golf course all day and keeping the ball in play was key.  Those who got off course were punished with some seriously crooked numbers.  The forecast for tomorrow calls for similar conditions so the scoring should be much like today's.

Thompson will get is his second round underway at 12:15pm CT from the first hole at the El Camaleon Golf Club.
