After finishing 124th on the 2011 money list to earn TOUR card for 2012, contacted tournament directors who granted him sponsor exemptions to thank them. "I've been doing this 25 years. I'm not saying I've never had a guy call me and thank me for doing that, but it's the first in a long time," AT&T National Tournament Director Greg McLaughlin told the Associated Press. "It's very rare. All the other guys are thankful and appreciative. But rarely do I get one after the season when a guy gets his card and calls you to thank you. As far as I'm concerned, he can play in one of my tournaments if he ever needs a spot. He's set for life.".
