Michael Thompson secured his 2018/2019 PGA Tour Card after finishing tied for 21st at the Championship.  He didn't have a particularly strong Sunday round where he shot even par (71) but it was good enough to finish 23rd on the Finals money list and improve his status on tour next year from conditional to fully exempt. 

Michael will be subject to the reshuffle list for the upcoming year and is currently 44th on the list but his ranking won't really matter until after the first reshuffle on November 18th which happens at the conclusion of the RSM Classic.

Michael's Tour Finals record is remarkable having now secured a PGA Tour card in all three Finals he has competed in.
