This is a big week if you follow golf.  It's an even bigger week for Michael Thompson.  

It's Masters Week and Michael Thompson is returning to Augusta for the first time in eight years.  The crowds might be a littler smaller than usual due to COVID restrictions but the greens will be just as fast and the azaleas should be in full bloom.

Following Michael at the Masters from your favorite online device should be fairly easy since there are live streams that cover most of the course and this year you can build a video channel called My Group. claims it will show you every shot from your favorited players.  Ideally you should be able to select Michael as a favorite player from the leaderboard and he will show up in your My Group channel  (see the picture below with the favorite selection star shown circled in red).  You can use the links in the "Online Links" section to help you navigate.

If you are going to follow Michael live on Thursday you'll have to be up early since Michael and playing partner Hudson Swafford are the first group off the tee Thursday morning at 8:00am EDT.  That should make for pristine conditions on the greens and for ideal conditions for all those Michael fans on-site in Augusta trying to follow his round.
