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’ve learned membership is open to people of all sorts of incomes and backgrounds. They have ways to make it affordable for the Everyman (per a member there).

    JY Or Lydia. Just can’t decide which Ko to go with.

        I don’t know about lazy. They all work hard.

        Danielle Kang and Ewing, 1st and 3rd on the US Solheim Cup standings respectively, are our best hopes Imo.

        The Korda sisters, 2nd and 4th, are always strong.

        Olson and Kupcho are a bit lower but stand out of the US list.

        DK had Butch spectating her last week, which is like having the white unicorn following you; Gotta like her chances.

        To think my 14 year old was less than 10 shots from being there. We still gotta work a bit harder, but it does not mean anyone is being lazy. The women’s game is extremely competitive. And only getting more so because everyone works so friking hard.
