Thompson Misses Out on US Open But Starts in Fedex St. Jude Classic

by Roz Roberts III

Earlier in the week, Michael Thompson shot two rounds of 72 in the US Open Sectional Qualifier in Rockville, Maryland.  Unfortunately, the combined 144 wasn't good enough to qualify for one of the 10 spots up for grabs. After the Qualifier, Michael headed south to Tennessee where he's competing in the Fedex St. Jude Classic starting tomorrow.

The Fedex St. Jude Classic is played at TPC Southwind in Memphis.  The course averaged nearly one full shot over par last year and is known for tight fairways, small greens, and numerous hazards.  In addition to the course, players will be fighting the heat which will be in the mid 90's with more than 50% humidity for the duration of the tournament.

Michael's first round gets underway at 8:39am ET on Thursday.  He tees off from the tenth hole.
