Sony Open to be the Start of Dreams Fulfilled has yet another article mentioning Michael:
"Sony Open to be the Start of 'Dreams Fulfilled' for Many NGA/Hooters Tour Alumni 
-  Player of Year Michael Thompson, other alumni make their PGA Tour Professional Debuts 
- Over 50 NGA/Hooters Tour Alums in Sony Open Field - 
Myrtle Beach, S.C.- Monday, January 10, 2011 - Exactly one year ago, Michael Thompson (Birmingham, AL) was preparing for the NGA/Hooters Tour Bridgestone Winter Series event at Forest Lake Golf Club in Ocoee, Fla. My, how things have changed.
After struggling through his first year on the NGA/Hooters Tour, Thompson found his stride in last year’s Bridgestone Winter Series, winning once and posting four finishes of T7 or better in eight events. The former U.S. Amateur runner-up carried that momentum into the 2010 NGA season, where he racked up six top-10 finishes, four top-5s and his first Hooters Tour win en route to Player of the Year honors. The former University of Alabama golfer stayed hot into PGA Tour Q-School, where he finished T16 to earn exempt status on the PGA Tour.
“I played on the Hooters Tour this year and had a great year; I loved it,” Thompson told the Golf Channel after earning his card. “So when I got [to Final Stage], I was happy to be here because no matter what, I was moving up to the next level.”
His first start at the next level will come at the PGA Tour level, and it will start in this week’s Sony Open in Honolulu, Hawaii. Thompson is also one of three former NGA Player’s of the Year in the event, joining Chad Campbell and Zach Johnson."
