Boston Globe Features Michael Thompson

by Roz Roberts III

The Boston Globe wrote a nice article on Michael Thompson Thursday and posted it on their website (  Here's a brief highlight:
The Travelers gives us an opportunity to meet someone new, such as Michael Thompson. Before the 26-year-old came out of nowhere and shot a 62 to finish a career-best fourth on Sunday, his was a name we didn’t know. As it turns out, he’s got a nice little story.
Maybe we should have known Thompson, because he advanced to the final of the 2007 US Amateur, losing to Colt Knost at the Olympic Club. That run got him into three professional events in 2008: the Masters (73-78, missed cut), the US Open at Torrey Pines (74-73-73-72, tie for 29th), and the Travelers Championship (65-67-72-73, tie for 59th), which extended him a sponsor exemption.
