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.

    I said yesterday Adam is being consistent in his values for health and safety and a real leader here.

    Based on his light schedule It’s possible Scott did not want to play until the week before the first major anyway, but still; He is making a strong statement.

    When Adam skipped the Olympics in Rio because of Zika he seemed out of touch. But so did many other pga tour players whom followed.
    The message the world received from golfers: No money. No play.

    This is different. No one will follow Scott in not playing this time because they all want their money.

    Adam Scott has his priorities in order. Sure having Money helps his decision making but many of the richest people in the world are rushing back to business despite continued risks to life.

    I’m not sure of Scotts plans for Olympic golf moving forward or if he will even qualify, but if he does, and it’s safe, I hope Adam changes his mind and competes despite IOC Frustrations.

    Adam truly is a great rep for Australia and golf. And if he plays, it would be a clear sign things are safe, because no one plays it safe quite like Adam Scott.
