Thompson In Prime Position Headed Into Round Four

by Roz Roberts III

Michael Thompson "is very excited" to be headed into tomorrow's final round at the McGladrey Classic with a one shot lead over Billy Horschel.  After posting one of only three bogey free rounds on Saturday, Michael jumped into the lead with a three under par 67.  Michael's rounds of 65-65-67 have him sitting at thirteen under par.  Besides Horschel, Trevor Immelman and Webb Simpson are also within two shots of Micheal's lead.

Michael will start his final round at 1:15pm ET and he will once again be paired with Horschel.  The two SEC alums get along well. After his round Michael said

"We had a great time out there; we were talking a lot; we were laughing. It was just like playing at your country club on a Saturday. It really made me feel comfortable going out there and playing with a buddy of mine. We get to do the same thing tomorrow, so in that sense, I know how to think now, in the final group on the weekend, and whether I have the lead or not, it really doesn't matter, I'm just going to go out and play my game and add up the score at the end, and hopefully I'll be the top guy."
Being in the final round should garner Michael a lot of television coverage on the Golf Channel, when the McGladrey is on the air which is from 2:00pm-5:00pm ET.  As usual, we've got all the links you'll need to follow on-line.

Earlier today the Shot Tracker data was ahead of the television coverage by a bit, which means either the "live" coverage wasn't really live or those Shot Tracker guys are REALLY good psychics!  So if you want to "see" what happens on TV without knowing what is about to happen, you might want to avoid Shot Tracker.  I'm just saying...
