Micheel making a late move

Shaun Micheel hasn’t exactly had it easy this season. His only status on the PGA TOUR is as a past champion and he’s had to top-10 his way into some tournaments. To get to the U.S. Open, he had to survive a 36-hole qualifier in Memphis, which he did before going out and producing his best-ever finish, a tie for fourth, at the St. Jude Classic presented by Smith & Nephew.

The former PGA champion isn’t wasting the opportunity this week. He just made his second straight birdie to get to 2 under and into a tie for the lead through 15 holes.

Micheel is also playing with a lot on his mind. His mom has been battling cancer and last week the folks from hospice came to see her. Obviously, a good performance here would go a long way for Micheel on and off the course. -- Brian Wacker
