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.

    BTW, would be nice if Golf Channel upped their game a notch over the last couple of weeks of the year.

      I hear ‘ya RM……I often view this as a Chamber Of Commerce moment for Hawaii….with about 200 million Americans freezing their butts off right now, it’s sure a tempting thought to want to vacation out there on Maui! As for The Golf Channel, wish they would run the old Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf shows from the 60s and 70s….those are sooo neat!

    I watched part of one of them yesterday while working out. It was kind of neat for about an hour checking out the fashions, watching Arnie and Julius Boros, the different technology, etc. But they seem to have many, many of them stacked in dusty closets for back to back usage.
