Thompson Moves Into the Top 10 at the Puerto Rico Open

Round 2 Recap
by Randy Roberts

I seem to be noticing a trend...

Michael Thompson's hot hand on the front nine holes at the Trump International Golf Club continued today, making 5 birdies on the front 9, besting the -4 he scored yesterday on that half.

His solid par play on the back 9 also continued as he shot 8 pars with the one exception being a double bogey on hole 14 where he hit it into a "Native Area" and had to take a penalty stroke. Combined, the two halves left him with a three under par 69, -7 overall.   He ended the day tied for 9th, the first time this season he's been in the top 10 at the end of a round.  Let's hope he keeps the strong play going tomorrow, and if the birdies start to drop on the back 9 too, watch out!

Thompson tees off tomorrow at 11:15 local time (10:15 EST).
