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 nothing to be so sad about.

    When remembering this Brooks era what should come to mind is “caveman golf”.

    This team clearly had mastered simplicity in golf, a phenomenon as unattainable in this sport as the fountain of youth.

    Aside from the injuries, the problem for Brooks and company was with so much time between shots, holes, tournaments, years; that winning formula of caveman-like simplicity was very difficult to maintain.

    Another something to consider is that as good as the Harmons are at teaching golf, they are not exactly the best thing to ever happen to knees; including tigers.

    Maybe Brooks needs Hank Haney now.

    It’s the end of an era for Brooks but Cheer up.

    After si woos W, sure Claude is
    Feeling cheery.

      For sure, Claude The Third will be just fine, not sure I can say the same for Brooks….he’s got a lot to prove…might start by making the cut this week at Torrey!

        I’m pretty sure Brooks will be even more fine financially.

        Brooks sooner or later will get back to form on the course but much like Jordan Spieth it’s simply ludicrous to expect him to match his great streak. Both have established amazing legacies without needing to play another tournament round.

          And considering how young they are, that’s a sad thought.
