Thompson Tackles Transitions

by Randy Roberts

Michael Thompson finished strong at the Transitions Championship at Innisbrook, scoring 4 under on the day, 8 under for the week.  He rose 23 spots on the leaderboard to finish T16.  For his efforts he earned $85,000 which moved up him up to #59 on the money list ($387,000), #56 on the Fed Ex Cup list, and #92 on the OWGR list.  It was his fourth cut in a row that he's made, 6 of 8 for the year.

Put all that together, and he's having an awesome year!  It seemed to us like this course really suited his game, and we expect him to return and do well in the future.  It doesn't favor any one type of player, and rewards those who manage the course well, which Michael did.

One perk of playing well and ranking high on all the various lists, is making it into the Inviational tournaments such as this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Florida.  It's something I think we'll be seeing more of in the future!
