About the author

Tom Edrington

Tom Edrington spent the first 10 years of his misguided youth as a sports writer for the Tampa Tribune. His career brought him face to face with many of sports greatest stars -- Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Muhammad Ali, Don Shula, countless Hall of Fame NFL stars, more PGA Tour players than he can count. In 1980 he was honored by the Golf Writers Association of America for writing the best news story that year, his coverage of Jack Nicklaus' U.S. Open victory at Baltusrol. Today, 36 years later, golf is still a great part of his life, thanks to competitive playing days and the wonderful people he has met on this fabulous journey.

    Thanks for the follow up on Michael Breed. Great to hear he is doing well.

    One day if you’re scratching around for an article topic – it seems, maybe to just me, that Golf Channel has gone downhill. My perception is that there are far less instructional programs, special features, etc. The default seems like the same several golf movies over and over to fill the gaps.

    In prior years there were pros giving playing lessons to celebrities, Hank Haney’s reality golf academy, Donald Trump’s Wide World of Golf, and others,

    Corporate mantra to cut, cut, cut costs? Or just my wrong perception?

      Actually watched Cam McCormick, Jordan Spieth’s guy, on his new Golf Channel series…..wasn’t all that impressed…..I think they’re keeping Martin Hall around, saw him at the show…..TGC trotted out some unknown guys on their set during the show, didn’t attract many onlookers…..cool think about Michael showing up at places like Golf Pride exhibit is that he’s right there among his fans, letting them take selfies with him, autographs, etc. Good to see him, just a nice guy, the kind you’d like to hang out with over an adult beverage.
