Thompson Digs Deep, Narrowly Misses Cut

by Randy Roberts

Michael Thompson went into the second round at the Shell Houston Open knowing that he would need about a 5 under day to make it to the third round.  He went out and played great golf, making it to -4 with three holes to go.  But alas, it was not meant to be as he bogeyed the 7th hole.  He fought back again and got one more birdie to get back to -4, but it was too little too late.  He ended the day just one stroke shy of the cut.  As he should be after playing some great golf and finishing strong, he sounded upbeat on twitter:
What a great day! Played well, gonna buy a new truck, and I get to go home. Can't get much better than that! #timetorest
They apparently did some shopping in Houston, as he later posted a photo of his brand new Chevy Tahoe:
