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.

    Just an FYI. A G550 has a operating ceiling of 51,000 feet, and since Tiger was flying to Florida, the aircraft was probably at 51,000 or 49,000 or 47,000 since the Gulfstream fly’s well above all the airliners. So 1,967 mile flight, probably 3.5 hours with winds at his tail going mach 0.9+.

      We thank you for your expertise, had no idea they fly that high…I do know it has a huge range, some 7,500 miles which makes it perfect for overseas flights as well…..as for the 3.5 hours, that’s almost how long the lead group took to play nine holes on Sunday, very sad.
