Thompson Riding Momentum Into Houston

by Roz Roberts III

In the last month and a half, Michael Thompson has been playing some good golf out on the PGA Tour.  In that time he's made five straight cuts and had two top 20 finishes.  In four of those five tournaments, he was playing the event for the first time.  The lone exception was the Mayakoba Classic.  This week, Michael will be playing in the Shell Houston Open where he finished in a tie for 24th last year.

For many of the top players in the field, the Shell Houston Open is a warm-up for the Master's which starts next week.  For the rest of the field it's the last opportunity to earn a spot in the Master's field with a win.  In either case, the course is setup to mimic the conditions at Augusta National as closely as possible.

Tee Times
Michael will be paired with Marco Dawson and Sunghoon Kang for the first two rounds.  The trio tees off from the first hole at 8:50am local time.

Television Times 
 Round one will be covered on the Golf Channel from 3pm - 6pm ET.
