Perserverance Pays Off for Thompson After Rough Start

by Roz Roberts III

For Michael Thompson, round three of the Players Championship became a test of patience.  The windy conditions made TPC Sawgrass a difficult test of golf for all of the players on Saturday.  Michael started the round with four bogeys in the first five holes.  However, after the rough start, he managed to grind through the rest of the round and played the remaining 13 holes at one under par.  He finished the round at three over par and is currently in a tie for 34th.

Michael's third round wasn't without its moments of brilliance as he made a 34'9" birdie putt on the eighth hole and he made an eagle at the par five 16th hole.  You can see the eagle putt in the video below.  This was the second eagle Michael has had during the Players after his opening round eagle at hole #11.

Michael will tee off the fourth round at 11:15am with Tom Gillis.
