Michael Thompson - The 10th Best Sports Figure from Southern Arizona in 2008

Michael Thompson was named the 10th best sports figure from Southern Arizona in 2008 by the Arizona Daily Star.

"10. Michael Thompson. The low amateur in the U.S. Open (tied for 29th overall), the University High grad was a consensus All-American at Alabama, where he led the Crimson Tide to its first SEC title in 28 years, won the individual SEC championship himself, made the U.S. Palmer Cup team. He also played two memorable rounds at the Masters in which he gained great respect by calling a penalty on himself in a virtually unseen putting situation."
