What A Difference A Day Makes

by Randy Roberts

After the first round of the Honda Classic, Michael Thompson sat at 126th.  Today, however was a new day and Michael came back with a vengeance.  He hit 9 of 14 fairways and was making some nice long putts.  None were more important than on the 18th hole, sitting right at the cut line which was wavering back and forth all day, he sank a 9' birdie putt to secure himself a spot for the weekend.

In total, he scored five birdies and finished the day at four under par, which got himself back to even par overall. He vaulted up the leaderboard a total of 84 spots to end the day at T-42.

Tee Times
Michael will once again be paired with Rod Pampling. They tee off at 10:03 ET.

Television Times
The Honda Classic will be aired on both NBC and the Golf Channel for the weekend.  The two networks will be airing simultaneously although the Golf Channel's covergae will get underway a couple of hours earlier than NBC.  The Golf Channel coverage will feature the "Bear Trap" (holes #15 through #17) and will probably be similar to the Live@ coverage the PGA Tour airs online while the NBC coverage will be the normal network approach to showing featured players and groups.  Since the Golf Channel coverage features the holes, rather than a select set of players, you'll get a chance to see some of the guys that don't typically get much air time.
