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.

    The main thing that hurts pebbles field last week is this field; as in this track in La La town.

    Obviously with so many big events in the horizon have to make tough choices on the west coast; where practically every event is great (for a change).

    Pebble is beautiful, well designed and not that cold. But rivieras design is arguably the best. Players care about that most.

    I assume if you have not been to pebble you have not been to riviera. Every golfer should experience an LA Open at Riv. Walking around those big trees, even with the rough down, it feels like a major, something that is increasingly not felt on the ‘we want everyone to shoot 40 under tour.’

      Plus, LA is an “invitational” which means small field (120), more FedEx points than normal event and more money…

    “Then there’s ball-crushing, Kyle Berkshire-admiring, rules-arguing, camera-scorning, lost-ball-seeking, physics-studying, frontal-lobe straining, U.S. Open-winning, distance-obsessed Bryson DeChambeau joining the party. Bryson has fallen down to 10th, bumping sand-swiping, rough-matting, after-the-fact-official-fetching Patrick Reed.”

    You can’t help yourself but to rip on these two PGA players, can you? What do you have against Kyle Berkshire? Your no better than the MSM media, your about making news with an agenda and sensationalizing quasi facts for effect, instead of actually reporting news. Hopefully most of the readers of your DLN posts understand this what your doing. Baaaaaa!

      Well, can you make the argument that NONE of the adjectives describing Bryson are untrue? It’s past of what makes him pretty interesting…same for Reed, can you argue that any of those adjectives are untrue??? And sir, they are NOT “PGA” players, they are PGA TOUR players, the PGA and PGA Tour are two different organizations….please make that distinction to you look better informed.

        Some is true. Some is not.
        The biggest problem with what the media did jumping the gun at Torrey is it now allows media, players and trolls to use that unfairly against Reed; if nothing else justifying it because of the sand issue (which I saw as defiant frustration more than anything) and those few accusations from way back in the day.
