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.

    My Phil prediction remains intact. He got lucky getting a great relief break that I am pretty certain not every PGA Tour player would have received–maybe I am wrong but……………..maybe I am correct…..(no punishment for stock escapade) either way I am right so far and some people who doubted me are joining me in that a man his age and desperate desire to win again, against unbelievable competition will not make it happen.
    Dustin is simply the best golfer on earth.

      You are right about it getting harder and harder to win and the young talent is strong. Love the Thomas Pieters kid from Europe. As for Phil, hope springs eternal!

    Good article, I refused to watch since they moved it from Doral. They could not have moved it to a more corrupt country on the continent. While I don’t admonish people for becoming wealthy and how they spend their money I would be critical of how they go about making it. This is an obvious “look the other way” to expand into the mexican market, Expansion is good but how you go about it is important. Living near the border I see how the corruption, drugs, human trafficking has decimated this country of haves/have nots. Its a sad state of affairs and while I think the PGA should stay out of politics you can tell a lot about someone by the company they keep.
