Thompson At The Top!

Shooting -4 at the US Open gets you some attention.

by Randy Roberts

Wow! What a day we Michael Thompson fans have had.  By now, you've probably heard that Michael finished the day in 1st place at the US Open.  He shot four under par, which is rather remarkable considering  only five players finished under par.

I'll be posting links to all the articles and photos I can find.  Keep coming back throughout the night as this post will be growing.

Round 2 Tee Time
Michael will be teeing off from the ninth hole on Friday at 12:52PT for his second round.  He will once again be playing with Steve Marino and Colt Knost.

Scoring LinksYou can follow online with the following links although there isn't a ShotLink style shot-by shot update like a normal PGA Tour event.  Roz will hopefully be Twitting updates from the course tomorrow if he can get his phone through security!
