When our cousin, Michael Thompson became a professional golfer, we started e-mailng back and forth links to articles we found online about him. We'd scavenge the internet trying to determine where he was playing next and what he was up to. When we found something, we'd send out emails to all our family members with links to the various leaderboards. The emails grew old quick, so we decided to make a centralized location to store all the information we were gathering. And with that, ThompsonTide.com was born. Several years have past since then, Michael has moved on from playing on mini-tours to not only making it to the PGA Tour but even becoming a PGA Tour Champion. Since then he's also gotten his own official website MichaelThompsonGolf.com. Meanwhile our little fan site continues to cover Michael Thompson news with the tenacity of the Golf Channel covering Tiger Woods. For us this is a hobby, ok... maybe an obsession, but it's become an outlet for us to write down what we discuss when we get together and discuss everything golf related and we're glad you're along for the ride.

Bio: I am a computer engineer - I am NOT a rocket scientist although we do a lot of work with satellites. I have two great kids, an incredible wife, a dog and a bunch of cats. I am one of the many very proud cousins of PGA golfer Michael Thompson (boy do I like the way that sounds). My brother Randy has done the majority of the work on The Thompson Tide so if you like the site he deserves all the props. Until recently I've mostly been providing editorial comments, scouring the Internet for links to articles and tournament fields, and obtaining the various website domain names we thought we might use. Lately I've been throwing up some blogs of my own and cluttering the Twitter feed with useless chatter. I hope you all like the site and if you have any comments or suggestions please let us know!
