Thompson Finishes Wells Fargo Championship in Tie for 64th

 by Roz Roberts III

After posting two under par rounds at the Wells Fargo Championship, Michael Thompson had a difficult front nine on Sunday and finished his fourth round at 5 over par.  At the end of 72 holes Michael was one over par and tied for 64th.  After shooting 4 over par on the front nine on Sunday, Michael rallied on the difficult back nine and  was under par from the 10th hole until the "Green Mile" closing four holes where he had two bogeys.  In the end Michael dropped a few spots but all in all the weekend was a success for him both golf-wise and personally as he helped raise awareness for the tornado victims in Alabama.

Michael and his wife Rachel made some headlines this weekend after they made hounds tooth patterned ribbons to help raise awareness for the tornado victims in the home state of Alabama.  As part of that campaign they were urging people to donate money to, a local charity helping with the recovery efforts.   The ribbons were in evidence all weekend and were paired with black ribbons that players were wearing to honor the passing of Hall of Fame golfer Seve Ballesteros.
