For the second week in a row Michael Thompson is threatening the top of the leaderboard on the PGA Tour.  This week, three consecutive rounds in the 60's have Michael ten under par and tied for 11th heading into Sunday's final round at the Farmers Insurance Open.

The weather at Torrey Pines has been ideal with San Diego perfect 70 degree weather and calm winds so scoring has been unusually good.  The South Course has been averaging right around par (72) which is a shot or two better than the last several years.

Michael tees off on Sunday at 9:45am PT from the first hole with Hideki Matsuyama and Scott Brown.
