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.

    Sad, but afraid this is right on the money.

      RM, tough to make a case where he actually becomes competitive again. Time has taken over and the young guys on tour, a bunch of ’em, are just too damn good. Even Rory is struggling to keep up with them.

    Why so cynical?
    Tiger is the BEST thing to EVER happen to golf…. period.

    You should be rejoicing at his attempted comeback, it does everyone nothing but good!

      Not cynical at all, it’s just another Tiger comeback attempt, hasn’t this record been played over and over? So I ask you rshmok, will Tiger Woods be content to be another guy out there with his name on his bag? We did not say anything about Tiger not being great for golf but at this point, he’s like a carnival sideshow…..let’s go see the man-eating Tiger in the cage that doesn’t have any teeth….

        How can you say it is not cynical when you start with the phrase:

        “Hopeless romantics, here we go again…”

        … and end with that phrase… and use that phrase in the body of the article, as well as using the word “Comeback” in quotes?

        You might have well have said; “Comeback… yeah, right… here we go again…”

          There are those out there who refuse to grasp the concept that Tiger might not even be able to play again, much less be competitive, but yes, here we go again with yet another installment in the ongoing series: Comeback Of The Tiger….cynical, you haven’t seen cynical yet…

        You would probably have written off Ben Hogan after his accident too… right?

          Sorry, way before my time……as you point out, Ben was in an accident, Tiger has brought a lot of his demise on himself…

    This guy can hit all the balls he wants, however no one on tour is afraid of him any more. As a touring pro, he will never win another PGA tour event.

      Hitting balls at moderate swing speed is one thing, trying to create the speed he needs to come anywhere close to where he used to be distance-wise is another and I think most feel as you do Jimmmy…..thanks for checking in!
