Smooth and Steady at Riviera

The elevated tee on Hole No. 1

by Randy Roberts

Michael Thompson put in another solid round of golf today at the Northern Trust Open.  The course has been a difficult one to score on, and that proved to be the case again in the third round.  His play has been really solid over the last three days, giving himself multiple birdie opportunities.  The shot of the day, and perhaps the tournament, came on hole 12 when he drained a 50'-10" putt for birdie. It was the longest putt on that hole all tournament, and I could only find one other hole that had a longer putt made on it.

Playing alongside another University of Alabama golfer, Bud Cauley for the first time in a PGA event, the Alabama twosome both ended the day at even par, staying at +2 overall.  They'll be playing in the same group again tomorrow and will be joined by Fredrik Jacobson.  All three of them will start the day at T-49. Their tee time is 9:01 PST.
