Nicholas Thompson posted a 1-under-par 33-36-69 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship, but dropped out of the top 125 in the FedExCup standings to miss the Playoffs.
Thompson ended his week at even-par 280 to share 70th with three other players. He fell from 123rd to 126th in the FedExCup standings and will not be apart of the Playoffs beginning at The Barclays later the week. The silver lining is that he still has his PGA TOUR card for 2014-15 via finishing 123rd on the PGA TOUR money list with $713,377. The top 125 in both FedExCup points and earnings are fully exempt next season. Aug 17 - 6:00 PM

Nicholas Thompson will take his game to Royal Montreal GC for the RBC Canadian Open this week.

Thompson enters the tournament 111th in the FedExCup standings due in large part to his T3 at Colonial. Following that success, he missed his subsequent five cuts before breaking out of his funk with a T37 at the John Deere Classic two weeks ago. With playing opportunities for his chasers dwindling, just making the cut this week would go a long way towards securing his 2014-15 PGA TOUR card by virtue of a top 125 finish in the FEC standings.

Nicholas Thompson has missed his most recent three cuts leading up to the Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club this week.

Perhaps form isn't much of an indicator for Thompson, as he tied for third at Colonial immediately before his stretch of three consecutive missed cuts. Before that, he missed four cuts in succession. This is his fifth trip to the QLN, with three of the four occurring at Congressional, and he's never missed a cut. If we can't count on current form, perhaps we can lean on his consistently good history.
Jun 24 - 3:20 PM

Nicholas Thompson spun a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and is the first to reach 8-under 272.

Thompson circled five birdies, including a 12'2" effort on the par-4 18th, to go with just one bogey. Other highlights included a 13'9" birdie at the par-4 second and a 14'10" birdie at the par-4 seventh. He gained over three strokes with his putter on Sunday, so that clearly played a large role in his overall success this week. Entering the week 138th in the FedExCup standings, he needed a tournament like this to try and secure his playing privileges for 2014-15 on the PGA TOUR. Thompson is only one off the lead in real time, meaning he shouldn't stray far from the property just in case.

Nicholas Thompson returns to TPC Four Seasons for the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Thompson tied for fourth in this event in 2008, but has also missed the cut in three of his five trips. That's a pretty fair representation of his entire PGA TOUR career. Several bright spots along the journey, but more misses than hits. He's currently 131st in the FedExCup standings, making eight of his 19 cuts in 2013-14.
May 13 - 10:13 PM

Nicholas Thompson circled five birdies for a 3-under-par 31-37=68 during his third round at the RBC Heritage.

Thompson got off to a roaring start on the front nine before coming in at 2-over on the back nine. Nitro's third round featured two hole-outs from off the green. The first coming for birdie from 15 yards out on the par-4 eighth, and the second coming from five yards on the par-4 finale to save a bogey. Thompson shares the 54-hole clubhouse lead at 5-under 208 and will make a run at his first PGA TOUR win tomorrow.
Apr 19 - 6:39 PM

Nicholas Thompson has opened the RBC Heritage with a pair of 1-under-par 70s.

The perennial Quadruple-A talent entered the week sitting 134th in FedExCup points despite no top 20s. However, he's placed T26 (Bay Hill) and T24 (Houston) in his last three starts. Today at Harbour Town, he signed for 35s on each nine with four birdies and three bogeys. (There are two par 5s on the front, but just one on the back.) His longest birdie measured 13 feet at the par-5 15th, but he also holed a par save from 10'10" at 17 and jarred a par from the rough eight yards away at 7. He's one back of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Apr 18 - 12:27 PM

Nicholas Thompson tees it up for the sixth consecutive week at the Shell Houston Open.

Thompson has three cuts made over the last five weeks while missing two cuts during that stretch. His course history at the Golf Club of Houston is also mediocre, as he's finished outside the top 50 in three-of-five attempts. Thompson's best output at the course came back in 2009 with a T11 finish.
Mar 31 - 10:48 PM

Nicholas Thompson fired a blemish-free 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of The Honda Classic and enters the final round at 6-under 204.

Thompson went out relatively early in the pack, completing most of his work before the leaders even teed off. His 14 pars were only broken up by four birdies. He accomplished this despite having his worst ball-striking round of the week. He split just eight (of 14) fairways and landed 12 GIR. He tied for 23rd here last year, so his success isn't without a precedent.
Mar 1 - 4:55 PM

Nicholas Thompson makes his fifth start in the Northern Trust Open this week.

When trying to gauge Thompson's history at Riviera Country Club, a quick peek reveals a horrid picture. His best finish was a 68th in 2010. Before that, he'd missed two cuts and withdrew after an opening-round 75 in 2008. Current form isn't much better, having missed two consecutive cuts and doing no better than a T69 at the Humana Challenge in 2014. A T40 at the CIMB Classic remains his best finish of the 2013-14 season.
Feb 12 - 8:54 PM

Nicholas Thompson returns to the Sony Open after a T41 last season.

To say 2013 was his highlight at Waialae Country Club would be a bit of an understatement. In his first four editions of this event, not only did he miss every cut but he never matched or broke par. He is three starts into his 2013-14 season, having made his lone cut at the CIMB Classic in the form of a T40. Needless to say, this may not be the place for him to get well.
Jan 8 - 8:25 PM

Nicholas Thompson parlayed his 2013 PGA TOUR card into a deep FedExCup Playoff run, and he hopes to continue that successful trend in the 2013-14 campaign.

Thompson's final FEC standing was 60th, with top 50s in each of the first three Playoff events to end the season. He remained busy during the Fall Series, playing three events but only cashing at the no-cut CIMB Classic with a T40. An early gauge of form will be the Humana Challenge, as he finished T6 with a 23-under-par score there in 2013.

Nicholas Thompson makes his 29th start of the season at the BMW Championship.

Thompson has secured 19 of his cuts to date, and that's good for 59th place in the FedExCup Standings. A T50 at The Barclays gave way to a T22 at the Deutsche Bank Championship in the first two Playoff legs, and if this trend continues at Conway Farms he could wind up with a berth in the TOUR Championship at East Lake.

Nicholas Thompson carded a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach the 54-hole mark at 12-under 201.

Thompson's round included five birdies to just one bogey. His 14 GIR were the most he's had all week, and his 1.481 strokes gained-putting clip was also tops for his tournament. At 73rd in the FedExCup standings, he's currently projected 51st with 18 holes to play. That would be good enough for him to advance to the BMW Championship.

Nicholas Thompson posted a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in the second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and easily makes the cut at 8-under 134.

Thompson began his week 73rd in the FedExCup standings, so priority one this week was making the cut and giving himself a chance to advance to the BMW Championship. He's done a little better than that, as he now finds himself in contention for at least a top 10. Things were looking even better until he dumped his approach on the par-5 18th into the muck and eventually settled for a bogey.
