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.

    Not thrilled about this either. We’re still not allowed to partake in this state.
    What’s Especially concerning is they are talking $100 as a base for bets. In this case it would be 100$ for a chance at 75,ooo$ Which sounds great but that’s how all addictive problems start right ?

      I think it’s horrible, because young people watch golf as well and with all the “positive” betting talk, well, they might find it “intriguing”…..I think we’ll probably do a feature on this…

        Well said.

        No doubt a huge concern for golfing families; sports families in general.

        If nothing else They should be made to present odds on a $1 system.
