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.

    It’s not the same without them.

    This is why all the events hosted by legends slowly fade in importance; and Arnie and Tigers events are no different…they will fade some also.
    Tiger is lucky his pga tour event is Riv; which never gets old.

    Bay Hill does seem right fit Rory. His putting had improved, then dipped as he focused on irons, but now maybe he takes advantage of less critical wedge shots at Arnie’s place than most (if I’m not mistaken).

    For a bunch of reasons I kinda wanna make Rick a long shot. Obviously he is inspired by Mr Palmer, and what Jordan has been doing, and he said things I like to hear in his interviews; like admitting he is frustrated, and he is ready to get past this slump. A win may be too much to ask for but I’m thinking Rickie comes back to life.

    As Pitino might say : Arnies not walking through that door. Tigers not walking thru that door…it’s definitely not the same but at least we we still have Rickie to root for.

    We’ll take it.

      I think come Sunday the defending champ might be in the chase; This launched him to a new level — top 10 player in the world.

        No doubt. Hatton is a great pick. He just seems to have cooled of a tiny bit lately. But the biggest thing is the defending champion thing.
