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.

    Wow. Hadn’t heard this.
    I wonder if all those boxes of a dozen callaway balls we get at a lot of junior golf events —but never use — have this issue.
    I guess I know why we stick to Titlesist.
    But then again it is a great built in excuse for golfers. After every embarrassing crooked shot:
    “I think I got another bad Callaway Jim”. Phil’s gotta be looking back at all those bad tee shots as we speak.
    I would have a hard time trusting again regardless of this 50$ mill investment.
