Kyle Thompson will play the Rex Hospital Open this week, which happens to be the site of two of his three Tour victories.

Thompson's 2013 campaign has been a poor one to say the least, missing each of his six cuts and falling far down the reshuffle list. TPC Wakefield Plantation could be exactly what he needs to get back on track. His wins were in 2007 and 2011, and the '11 win vaulted him onto the PGA TOUR in 2012.

Kyle Thompson survived the cut on the number at the True South Classic.

The cut finally fell this afternoon at Annandale Golf Club. Thompson posted 3-under-par 69-72=141 from the late-early draw, and then waited as the other half of the field reached the midpoint. When all golfers had concluded 36 holes, nine were tied for 67th place at 141. It's no small achievement for Thompson, who returned to the PGA TOUR this year via the Tour. He was 0-for-15 entering the week, and goes in the books as the last of all 2011 graduates to clinch a payday. After he learned he was playing the weekend in Mississippi, he wrote the following on Twitter: "Well I finally made a cut and got this 1000 lb. gorilla off my back! Now it's time to finish this year off strong."
