The Heat Wave Continues

Michael Thompson dials in his approach shot during the third round of the Desert Classic
by Roz Roberts III

Michael Thompson's third round at the Desert Classic was even better than his first two.  He shot a seven under par 65 and is now tied for 5th heading into Sunday's final round at -17 for the tournament.  His seven under par round contained nine (yes you read that right) birdies.  He actually birdied six of his first nine holes to climb the leaderboard early in the day.

Tomorrow's final round will be played on the Stadium Course at PGA West which is the same course he played today.  Michael will be playing with Patrick Cantlay and Steve Marino in round four.  The trio tee off at 10:30am PT.

Thanks to my lovely and generous wife I'll  be making a road trip tomorrow morning out to the desert to cheer Michael on.  I'll try to get some pictures and maybe even a video or two to post tomorrow night.

Highlights from Michael's third round at the Desert Classic.
