Good Press
As Masters Week continues, Michael Thompson got some good press from a couple of sources on Tuesday.

First, Michael's day got started early at the Augusta Golf Breakfast where he was the featured speaker.  Based on all early reports the breakfast went great.

 Here's a nice recap from the Augusta Chronicle:  Michael Thompson shares faith at golf breakfast

Second, as he promised after the Shell Houston Open, Jason Sobel wrote a nice article on Michael and his previous Masters experience.  It is a great article and well worth the read.
