Thompson's US Open Sectional Qualifying Bid Happens Tomorrow

by Roz Roberts III

Michael Thompson and 116 other US Open hopefuls will go through the US Open Sectional Qualifying stage tomorrow in Memphis, Tennessee.  The stage will consist of 36 holes played on two courses over a single day.  This year's qualifying will be played at the Ridgeway Country Club and at the Colonial Country Club (South Course).  There are 11 spots up for grabs.

Michael will be playing with fellow professional Jonathan Byrd and amateur Davis Riley.  They will start at the Colonial Country Club South Course and will tee off from the tenth hole at 8:39am CDT.

As of now (9:30 PDT), Michael's name disappeared from the scoring link.  There are still 117 golfers listed so I'm not sure if he withdrew and someone replaced him in the field or if there is an error on the website.

Update: (10:05 PDT): Michael withdrew from the qualifier due to a neck injury.  He's hoping to get right before this week's Fedex St. Jude Classic  (per Jonathon Wall on Twitter).
