Thompson Earns First Paycheck as a PGA Tour Rookie

By Randy Roberts

Michael Thompson made the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open, and went on to finish T-65. The finish got him into the earnings column and will help him maintain his position on the Rookie Reshuffle List. The list is a ranking system for the Tour's rookies which determines which order tournament invitations go out. By making the cut this week, it moves him up several spots from where he originally stood after Q School. The re-shuffle will occur after the Mayacoba Classic during week 6 of the season. He already has two additional guaranteed starts before the reshuffle: The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and the Mayacoba Golf Classic at Riviera Maya Cancun. He has this week off, and will be back at it in Pebble Beach the week after.
