The 2013/2014 PGA Tour season really gets into full gear this week in Maui at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.  Michael Thompson will be joining 29 other Tour winners from last year at the Plantation Course at Kapalua for a four round, no cut event.  Kapalua , known for its length and its scenic vistas, boasts an unusual par 73.  Unlike last year, the tournament is expected to be played in fairly good wind conditions of 20 MPH as a storm passes through Friday and clears on the weekend.

Michael has already logged two official PGA Tour events in the 2013-14 season, reflecting a change to incorporate portions of the Asia Tour into the FedExCup race.  His T35 and T50 in the fall part of the season currently has him at 114th on the FedExCup points list.  Michael will be looking for strong finishes in early 2014, as he works toward a place in the Accenture Match-Play event in February, which is limited to the top 64 players on the OWGR list.

Michael tees off at 11:00am (Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time) with fellow competitor Brian Gay on Friday.
