After nine holes at today's Barbasol Championship in Auburn, Alabama Michael Thompson sat at even par but then caught fire.  He birdied five of the next six holes and climbed the leaderboard quickly.  He finished the day with a four under par 67 and he is currently tied for 8th.

Friday's second round will get underway early for Michael as he tees off at 7:44am.  The early tee time should allow Michael to miss the worst part of the hot Alabama afternoon.
