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.

    Bryson. Bryson. Bryson.

    First, after his first drop from the penalty area on 15, he wanted a re-drop from that gnarly lie because his feet were still in the hazard. So clearly at that point already, as I believe Chamblee called it, he did not major in the rules of golf at SMU.

    This was only the beginning of Brysons rules ignorance.

    Second, arguing the fence interpretation is one thing, but he never uttered the word ‘provisional’ during the well mic’d scenario. I believe provisional is still part of this new gray-areas-era of the rules of golf (Don’t get me started with Rahms penalty On 16Sunday).

    Actually I’m started. The tour decided the ball moved but could have easily used the naked eye/technology bs to forgive Rahm. As with DJ at the Us Open It helped that the penalty would not change the winner. But as I said when this rules change happened, controversy is even more possible now. If a ball moves it moves. It doesn’t matter how or by whom the evidence was gathered. Claims are different; those mean nothing. But how can you argue clear video evidence? You cannot.

    Ditto on the video evidence regarding you know who.
