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 agree liv shouldn’t receive full owgr points in its current form, but they should receive something. What if cam smith reels off a few majors in the next couple of years ranked 500 in the world? Then the owgr become inaccurate and irrelevant.

    Or what if Rory completes his career grand slam at the masters in a field missing Gooch, Wolff, Niemann, Leishman, Oosthuizen, Ancer, Kokrak etc, all top 50 players, because of no owgr points. Then it’s a hollow win that will forever have an asterisk next to as a win against a vastly reduced field.

      The criteria for ranking points was established a LONG TIME AGO. LIV is demanding everything to fit their narrative….The top 50 will be at The Masters….Matt Wolff’s game went south well before he went to LIV, that’s why he went, he’s now 112th in the OWGR; Winning a major gets you big world ranking points even if you are on the LIV…..I see Patrick Reed, dangling at 50 is in the French Open field this week……the LIVers can still play the DP World Tour and get ranking points; Truth is LIV does NOT meet the criteria for ranking points….that’s pretty simple to understand…..where’s Pat Perez ranked? Tiger Woods’ Hero Open had the limited field (20 or so I believe) but they were among the top 25 in the world and it took him two years to get points and they play 72 holes; Gooch and the rest can still go through qualifying for the Open Championship and US Open and if they’re that good, they’ll get in the field….don’t know what the PGA is going to do. Oh by the way, wait until Friday and see what kind of reception The Lamest Commissioner In All The Land got on Capitol Hill……
