Tour pro quits golf, goes to first day of work at a real job as 39-year-old

3rd January, 2019

Kyle Thompson, despite being on the as a winning player for 2 decades, never could quite crack the PGA tour winning circle.

Earning only $24,878 last year on the PGA tour just wasn’t enough for all the effort put in. He decided the Wyndham Championship in August would be his last tournament if he didn’t qualify for the FedEx Playoffs.

He kept to this statement.

“For some reason I haven’t had nearly the monetary success of some other guys… if you get one or two good years on the PGA Tour, it can set you up for years”, he told the media.

Instead, after 17 years as a tour pro, the 39-year-old Thompson finally settled on his first “real job” to grow a career and future for his family.

A great effort by a man who gave everything on the course but strong enough to make the switch to the “real life”. Props to you Kyle.
