En Feugo en Puerto Rico

Round 1 Recap
by Roz Roberts III and Randy Roberts

As the temperature warmed up today, so did Michael Thompson's first round at the Puerto Rico Open.  Michael hit 16 of 18 greens in regulation which gave him plenty of scoring opportunities, but the day started with the birdie putts not wanting to fall in as he scored nine pars in a row.   Making the turn onto the front nine at the Trump International Golf Club, the birdie putts started to drop.  Michael caught fire and scored five birdies, four of which came in the last five holes. The solid golf was tempered by a lone bogey on hole #3, but the strong finish led to a four under par 68 enabling Thompson to climb the the leaderboard at the end of the day, finishing tied for 11th.  

Michael's second round begins at 8am local time (7am ET) where the morning is forecast to bring a chance of brief showers.
