Posted 3:27 PM 3/3/2013 : Thompson wins Honda, earns spot in Masters
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. - Michael Thompson won his first PGA Tour event Sunday at the Honda Classic to earn another trip to the Masters.
Thompson seized control with a 50-foot eagle putt on the third hole. He stayed in control with superb par saves early on the back nine at PGA National. He made birdie from the bunker on the last hole for a 1-under 69, giving him a two-shot victory over Geoff Ogilvy.
The win earns the 27-year-old Thompson a spot in the Masters. He last played at Augusta National in 2008 as the U.S. Amateur runner-up.
Ogilvy birdied two of his last three holes for a 69 to finish alone in second, which moves him into the top 50 and gets him into the World Golf Championship next week at Doral.
