Thompson Saved His Best for Last

by Roz Roberts III

Michael Thompson saved his best round at the Bridgestone Invitational for last as he shot a bogey-free two under par 68 and finished in a tie for 21st.  This marks Michael's second consecutive top 25 finish in a WGC event.  He moved up to 38th on the Fedex Cup points list and up to 34th on the money list.  He also moved up to 51st on the OWGR list (22nd in the US).

Michael's round was highlighted by some great ball striking.  He hit 10 out of 14 fairways and two of the missed fairways were in the first cut of intermediate rough.  He also hit 12 out of 18 greens in regulation and four of those missed greens were on the fringe.

Despite the great ball striking, Michael was happiest with his putting.  After the round he tweeted "NO 3 PUTTS!"

Next week he'll be in Rochester, New York to compete at the PGA Championship which will be held at the Oak Hill Country Club's East Course.
