Prior to play being suspended due to heavy rain, Web.com Tour grad and World No. 228 Michael Thompson carded a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of the Puerto Rico Open to reach 9-under 135, one back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Chris Stroud.
Of 132 players, the 31-year-old was one of only nine to get their respective rounds into the books prior to the stoppage. He squared a lone bogey-5 at four but bounced back with eagle at the par-5 fifth, adding birdie-4s at 7, 12 and 13. With lift, clean and place in effect, the Alabama alum found 10 (of 14) fairways and peppered 17 greens in regulation, posting 1.824 putts per GIR and a pedestrian 32 total putts. He opened with a six-birdie one-bogey 67, improving to 4-for-4 at Coco Beach G&CC, looking to better a T14 on debut in 2011 (68-69-70-72), his lone top-25 finish thus far. Mar 24 - 12:09 PM
