After securing his 2015/2016 PGA Tour card with his performance in the Web.com Tour Finals, Michael Thompson will be in action again this week as the new year of the PGA Tour season gets started at the Fry's.com Open.
Michael secured his PGA Tour card after making the cut in the first three events of the Web.com Tour Finals securing his card early with his tie for second place in the Hotel Fitness Championship. He sat out the fourth event and ended up finishing 8th. With his 8th place finish in the finals money list, Michael is ranked 16th in the current reshuffle list which grants priority entry into events for the next year.
Last week, Michael was a featured speaker at the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate dinner in Tuscaloosa. Ian Thompson (no relation) wrote a nice article on Michael's speech and how well it was received. You can read it here:
