FOX Sports: Once Again, Totally Awful At U.S. Open | Dog Leg News

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.

    Yep, I like Paul Azinger as a golfer, but was underwhelmed by his on air observations. Much prefer the other gang, and I’m fine with Faldo and Miller as part of it.

    The main negative thing for me was the mikes at the tee boxes. I guess they were there to pick up chatter from the players and caddies while they tee off, but hearing the drunks yelling doesn’t add to the experience. After you’ve heard the morons screaming “Get in the hole!” from 500 yards away for the 25th time, you’re hoping the TV geniuses toss those mikes where sun doesn’t shine.

        Isn’t there any way to stop these morons from shouting, or removing them if they do? I agree, can’t wait for Carnoustie!

      Guys were a lot tougher back in those days, courses weren’t as manicured and the greens weren’t like pool table tops.
