Thompson's Cuts-Made Streak Reaches Six In a Row

Michael Thompson hits his second shot at the par five tenth hole during the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

by Roz Roberts III

After shooting a bogey free three under par at the Wells Fargo Championship today, Michael Thompson's cuts-made streak reached a career high six tournaments in a row.  He has now made 11 out of 13 cuts on the year.  Despite his increased number of cuts made, Michael hasn't had a top ten finish this year.  He'll look to change that this weekend.  He is currently four under par for the tournament and tied for 12th.

Michael's second round was highlighted by some  impressive scrambling.  He only hit 9 greens in regulation but went 9 for 9 in scrambling to preserve the bogey free round.  The closest he came to a bogey was on the par four 12th hole when he made a 19'11" par saving putt.

Just as it has all year, Michael's putting has been stellar.  He was +.901 in strokes gained putting for the first round and +1.667 for the second.  He now ranks 12th on the PGA Tour in the category.

Michael will be playing with Jonathan Byrd for the third round.  They tee off at 12:50am ET.
