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.

    You came back to Rahm also in the article; which is where My head keeps coming back to this week.

    Rahm is coming off a nice showing at the Masters and a solid defense in the team event.

    He seems due to win as one of the top players in the world. And this place really does seem suited for him.

    As you know JT is ‘ my golfer’ but micro blocks miss by micro inches. I’m not into this being super hopeful because a guy burned every edge. It’s arguable missing by micro inches are signs of needing to fix the putter by microns, which is easier said then done.

    Rahm is making putts. And obviously life is good after the baby. But more importantly he is increasingly able to refocus on his golf since the birth.

      Jon hasn’t played since The Masters and I believe the new arrival has taken up a lot of his attention. I wouldn’t discount Quail Hollow member Webb Simpson.

        Rahm played the team event; and did pretty well. Jon’s young and still very hungry. I’m sure he’s more focused on his game than diapers whether he is playing or not.

        Yawn on Webb. But I agree. Webb’s due for something. He’s only 35 but feels like he’s 45 sometimes; which causes one to think his downward trend is coming. While he is still young, unlike Rahm, Webb is old enough and with a growing family where things can get tricky to win moving forward like before. Simpson will always be an atm machine; that’s for sure; but winning is different.

          Jon’s putting has not impressed me in a while.

            Agree about jons putting not impressing lately. But he is always solid in every phase.

            I’m definitely not the biggest Jon fan although he has been growing on me.
            Regardless of personal feeling the man is undeniably world class and can win at any time really with his simple powerful swing and well rounded game.

            I’m trying not to sleep on him as you put me to sleep with Webb.

            I’m with you an Jon, since I have found myself pulling for the Europeans in the last two Ryder Cups, I like Jon and he is an enormous talent. That being said, I think he should be winning more often.
