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 there is one event on the pga tour schedule to postpone until later in the year it’s this one. More than any event in golf, possibly sports, this event is all about the fans.

    I’m curious about this no longer counting attendance. The greatest part of this event is the attendance numbers associated with the throngs of people we see.

    I look forward to those big numbers annually.

        Yea no doubt it’s basically impossible. I was just thinking of an unlikely scenario where they flip dates with some other event not as dependent on fans. But obviously nobody would want to do that.
