Another Scorching Start in the Desert

Round two of the CareerBuilder Challenge started a lot like round one for Michael Thompson.  He birdied six of his first nine holes and made the turn at five under par.  He birdied the first two holes of the back nine and actually took the solo lead for a little while before his round sort of ran out of steam.  Despite bogeying the final hole, Michael carded a five under par 67 and is -11 after the first two rounds tied for 8th.

Michael will face the final course of the three played at the CareerBuilder Challenge over the next two rounds: the TPC West Stadium Course.  This Pete Dye course is new in the tournament's rotation and is the most challenging of the three courses.  A cut will be made after Saturday's third round and the final round will be played at the Stadium Course.

Michael tees off at 8:30am PT on Saturday.
