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.

    I always say the St. Jude classic is not the most significant tournament on the tour but it is the most IMPORTANT tournament……….i still remember Harris English after winning his first pga tour event coming off the final green and instead of going nuts–he simply went over to the young boy in the wheelchair and gave him the ball. class and dignity and understanding what is really important. yes the single most important event on the schedule—-period.

      Now all we need is for Phil to win. Can you imagine? He wins a week too soon then misses the U.S. Open. How about that for a storyline?
