Tough Conditions Favor Thompson's Game

by Roz Roberts III

When you can shoot par and move from a tie for 17th up into a tie for 11th,  you've got the kind of setup that Michael Thompson thrives in.  At the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am wind and rain have wrecked havoc on most of the field.  Michael likes those kind of difficult conditions and in the last two days Michael has climbed all the way into a tie for 11th.  He even cracked the top 5 for a while earlier today until a double bogey on the 10th hole at Pebble Beach dropped him back a bit.

Play was halted for a while today as strong winds made some of the exposed holes at Pebble Beach unplayable as the wind would not allow balls to stay still on the green.  Because of the delay, round 3 was suspended due to darkness with several players still needing to complete their rounds.  After round three completes tomorrow morning, a cut to the top 60 and ties will be made and the final pairings will be announced.

Michael tees of at 10:28PT with Jim Renner and Brendon Todd.  The Golf Channel will have TV coverage from 10am - 11:30am PT and then CBS will have coverage starting at noon PT.
