Michael Thompson finished last week's Wyndham Championship in a tie for 11th.  It was his best finish of the year and moved him up to 142nd in the Fedexcup points list but that wasn't enough to earn a spot in this week's PGA Tour playoffs which is reserved for the top 125 spots.  Finishing inside the the 150 spots was good enough to earn conditional PGA Tour status for next year which would typically provide access to 12 to 15 tournaments next year.

In an effort to earn better priority status for next year, Michael will compete in the Tour Finals.  The Finals is a four event competition and the top 25 money earners in the four event series will earn full cards for next year.  Tomorrow marks the start of the Finals as the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship gets underway in Columbus, Ohio.

Michael will be grouped with fellow PGA Tour alums David Lingmerth and Josh Teater.  They tee off at 7:31am EDT.
