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.

    Great week of competition on probably the only 7 day stretch of the year with no NFL or pga tour events.

    From Gabby and Lucy to Suh and the Boys getting their Tiger and Rorys tour cards, to another not so quite no name veteran taking an emotional euro win, to rusty strawn taking the US senior Am, to Rose setting a women’s record at pebble (if not my girls, that’s my early US women’s Open pick—thanks promedica) it was quite a week in golf!

    And of course Tom —expectedly— buried the lead and did his best to describe in as few words as possible what truly was another great week of firsts for the LIv Golf boys in another incredible golf setting outside of Boston.

    The week started with the Shark officially and finally introducing shorts to men’s competitive golf with one simple social media hop.

    Then the second best commissioner in golf —Whan is still first for now — imho—arguably became the first Commish to do something else as the Shark skydove to kick off the proceeding just outside of Boston.

    Meanwhile Monahan sat around somewhere.

    The week also started with a sour note in what should be the Euros captain—and the last LIv Winner— Stenson— having to sit out for vertigo.

    Fortunately Henriks bills are better handled now. And this opened the door for an 18 year old to gain incredible experience, Shergo Al Kurdi clearly did as his team had a podium finish.

    As was expected Some guys have been shuffled out—mainly some of hidekis countrymen— to make room for 6 new higher level tour pros including what is currently the second best golfer on the globe in Cam.

      Knew we’d have to do this sooner or late……NO LIV reporting in the comments…..we would prefer comments be “comments” and no essays on LIV.
