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 think it was Davis love 3 whom lost a Ryder cup match or something because he didn’t want to take what was clearly a free relief option because he did not feel it was right in the spirit of the game.
    Sorry for not being more sure about the facts of that story. But the point is Bryson has become the opposite of that story. Even if he had a case, which he didn’t, the case would have been so small it would be wrong too take advantage. Normally I would say a player should fight for every inch. But this isn’t that…

      Fire Ants build mounds, at least here in Florida; I was once lining up a shot and didn’t realize I was standing on one, suddenly they’re on my leg, I calmly walked into the pond that was six yards from my ball, that’s the only way I avoided their attack…wow, close one; As for Bryson, there no mounds near his ball; The rules official held his ground; In the meantime, Bryson was putting the extreme slow-play on Rickie Fowler…..Patrick Reed is thankful Bryson has turned into a heel…

        Yea! It does seem part of these shananigans with the rules are also gamesmanship for fellow players.
        He really is missing the point of golf. Bryson needs to me mandated some The First Tee lessons.

    LOL, on the “calmly” walking into the pond with fire ants on your leg. That had to be good for some 19th hole discussion.

    FWIW, I sure didn’t see fire ants on TV the other day.

      I was a lot younger then, and I got into that pond in a hurry! Good thing I was on the 9th hole; It was a private club (yeah, I belonged to a nice one in my 30s) and got another pair of shoes at the turn….Love how Koepka, the net day says to his caddie: “I see ants!…Caddie looks in and Brooks quickly adds — “Just kidding…” I’m pretty sure Brooks doesn’t think much of Mr. DeChambeau

        Absolutely not much at all…I would love to hear brooks compare and contrast Patrick and Bryson.

          The difference, Reed knows he’s a butt-head; DeChambeau is oblivious doesn’t realize he’s becoming confrontational with rules officials.
