Thompson Does Some Serious Moving on Moving Day

Michael Thompson made the most of his moving day by posting a field leading six under par 64 and moved up the leaderboard 31 spots and is currently tied for fourth.  He played a nearly flawless round with his lone blemish coming on the first hole where he missed a 23 inch par putt for his lone bogey on the day.  After that his round was highlighted by an eagle on hole #12 and five birdies including a birdie on the par 3 18th hole.

Tomorrow, Michael will be trying to grab an autonomic invitation into the Open Championship.   Spots for the top four golfers (and ties) who aren't already in the field will be given a berth into the third major championship of the year.

He will be playing in Sunday's penultimate group with Kevin Chappell.  They tee off at 1:55pm ET.
