Thompson Moving On Up

Michael will be playing the 3rd round at the La Quinta Country Club

by Randy Roberts and Roz Roberts III

Michael Thompson shot a five under par 67 and moved up the leaderboard 34 spaces into a tie for 62nd during the Humana Challenge's second round on Friday.  He'll have one more round to improve his position before the cut is made at the top 70 golfers (and ties) after everyone gets a chance to play each of the three course being used this week.

According to his wife's blog over at Thompson Squared On The PGA Tour (recommended reading for all the Michael Thompson fans out there), Michael had been trying out a new driver during Thursday's first round.  He wasn't completely comfortable with the driver's increased stiffness, so he returned to using the driver he had used the previous week.  Michael improved his first round score by four shots and his round included an eagle and five birdies.  

Michael's third round will tee off at 10:30 PST Saturday at the La Quinta Country Club.  He will again be playing with PGA pro Briny Baird, but will be joined by a new group of amateur players: George McCrimlisk (owner of Accounting firm, George H. McCrimlisk & Company) as well as neurosurgeon Dr. Paul McCombs.
