Better Late Than Never

by Roz Roberts III

It's August and the PGA Tour is about to launch the first major of the year:  the PGA Championship.  These are strange times.  Along with everything else in America, the ongoing COVID pandemic has wreaked havoc with the PGA Tour schedule.  But the delay has worked in Michael Thompson's favor.  After his victory at the 3M Open, he is now eligible for this week's PGA Championship and the US Open in September.

This week's PGA Championship will be played at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.  The course is just across Lake Merced from the Olympic Club where Michael finished second in both the US Amateur and the US Open.   The whether is expected to be damp and cool, typical for the summer in the Bay Area.

Michael will be grouped with Ryan Palmer and Kevin Kisner for the first two rounds.  They tee off at 7:44am PT from the first hole on Thursday.
