Reno-Tahoe Open Preview

by Roz Roberts III

Michael Thompson will be competing in the Reno-Tahoe Open which gets underway on Thursday at the Montreux Golf and Country Club.  Located halfway between Reno and Lake Tahoe, the Jack Nicklaus designed course is 7,472 yards long but plays shorter since the course sits at an elevation between 5,000 and 6,000 feet. The rustic setting features creeks, lakes, waterfalls, and pine forest.  Despite some generous fairways and the extra length off the tee due to the elevation, the course's small undulating greens make the course one of the more difficult on the tour.  In fact, last year Montreux ranked as the 6th most difficult.

Michael's first round starts from the first tee ay 1:06pm PT. He is paired with Scott McCarron and fellow University of Alabama alum Dickey Pride.
