MichaelThompson_337_0 A true story for once about Michael Thompson, who managed to move up 52 spots in the world rankings in a week where there was no tournament. When Thompson first played a Tour event in 2008 nobody knew his middle initial so he was entered as Michael “X” Thompson on the world ranking list.  That initial was used only once, before the proper name Michael “H” Thompson was set up in the system.

Thompson  finished 98th on the PGA Tour list last year and then jetted off to Asia where he finished third in the Thailand Golf Championship.  When he got back Thompson checked the world rankings on the internet only to find he actually drop two spots to 183rd for his good finish in Thailand.

After scratching his head for a while Thomspon’s manager called the ranking board who checked it out. As it turned out the 12.8 world ranking points had been given to Michael X Thompson by mistake.

And so it was that the world rankings were amended in a week where there no tournament to show Michael H Thompson jump from 183 to 131 in the world.
