PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Michael Thompson has certainly had a colorful scorecard so far. The good news for Thompson is he still leads as he nears the turn.
After reaching the par-5 third in two, Thompson, who is looking for his first career PGA TOUR win, rolled in a 49-footer for eagle.
The next hole, however, he gave one of those strokes back with a bogey after missing the fairway, missing the green and failing to get up and down when he missed an 8-footer for par.
Thompson bounced back with a birdie the next hole, however, and has added one bogey (No. 7) and one birdie (No. 8) since, getting him back to 10 under and now a three-stroke lead over playing partner Luke Guthrie.
Goeff Ogilvy is another stroke back, while three others, including Lee Westwood and Keegan Bradley are 5 under.
