Thompson Stays in the Top 10

Round 3 Recap
by Randy Roberts

Michael Thompson's strong play at the Puerto Rico Open continued on Saturday, as he posted a 2 under par 70 to remain tied for 9th place.  Unlike the previous two rounds, Thompson played the front 9 for even par, and was finally able to break through on the back 9, scoring 2 birdies along with 7 pars.  Prior to the first birdie scored on the back 9, Thompson had pars on 21 of the 22 holes played on that half of the course.  One item to note from his statistics is that he's gaining yardage on his drives every round he plays.  The first round averaged 265 yards, second round 284 yards, and third round 298 yards.  We've noticed his yardage has generally been increasing over the last several tournaments.

Michael's final round begins at 11:20am local time (10:20ET).  Don't forget to set your clock ahead for daylight savings time.  He will once again be paired with Chris Di'Marco.
