The PGA Heads to ThompsonTide Country, San Diego

by Randy Roberts

The PGA continues it's west coast swing this week at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.  Located along the cliffs just north of La Jolla, Torrey Pines is one of the most picturesque golf courses on the Tour.  Site of  the 2008 US Open, where Michael Thompson finished as the low-amateur (T-29th), it also hosts the Farmers Insurance Open each year.

We here at the Thompson Tide (all 2 of us) are excited because San Diego is our hometown and we hope to follow Michael each day of the tournament.  Roz has already been on site and taken photos from practice rounds so we might be posting some of those as we go.  You can check out our twitter feed to get updates throughout the day.

Players will be playing once on the North and once on the South course before the usual cut to 70 players plus ties is done.  Michael tees off from hole 10 of the South Course at 8:40 PST and will be paired with Brendon de Jonge and Marco Dawson.

FYI: For those of you who use iPads, the PGA released a new PGA HD app today which you can use to follow the leaderboards and get the latest stats.  It's worth checking out.
