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.

    If I had to guess I would say tiger coldly said to keep his dumb butt —Reid— out.

    While I disagree with that potential strategy from the goat, there is no doubt this US team needs to get chemistry right because that’s what the euros do so well.

    And of course Reed has a number of potential chemistry issues.

    But the difference is the euros seem to get chemistry right without keeping their best players out, especially their best cup players.

    I do appreciate the entire US team going to the Straits early, albeit reluctantly. Based on their look in that press conference, the weary players looked like Rory before the Olympics: clearly not wanting to go but feeling it’s the right thing to do.

    Rory came out glad he went to the 5 ring circus of sports, as one expected. But for the US team this time away from much needed RnR could backfire, as things often do for this team…not to be cold about it.

    Go USA!
