Golf roundup: Michael Thompson wins Honda Classic

On a long, hard day at the Honda Classic, Michael Thompson relied on a superb short game to win for the first time on the PGA Tour.

Thompson seized control early with a 50-foot eagle putt on the third hole, then kept his distance with clutch par saves and closed with a birdie from the bunker. It gave him a 1-under-par 69 — one of only five rounds under par at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. — and a two-shot win over Geoff Ogilvy.
