Round One in the Desert is In the Books

by Roz Roberts III

Michael Thompson finished his first round at the Humana Challenge with a one under par 71 that has him currently tied for 96th.  His round was highlighted by a streak of four birdies in a row on holes #13 through #16 on the Nicklaus Private course at PGA West.  After the birdie streak, Michael was three under par.  However, a bogey at hole #1 and a double bogey at hole #2 slowed the round down a bit.  Michael carded a couple more birdies and one more bogey to finish the round of at -1.

Unlike most PGA Tour events, there are two more round before the eventual cut because this event is played on three courses.  Each player will play each course once before the cut which will reduce the field for the fourth round which will be played at the Palmer Private course at PGA West.

Michael's second round gets under way at 10:00am PST at the Palmer Private course at PGA West.  Once again he'll be paired with Briny Baird.  This time the two professionals will be playing with two executives from the health care industry Ken Melkus and Dave Colby.

Televison coverage can be found on the Golf Channel from 3pm ET to 6pm ET.

Shot link data will be available for this round since it is being played on the host course (Palmer Private).
