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.

    Sands should already be in the doghouse for turning every quick interview into an Oprah special.

    The phenomenon of post game interviewers feeling success by fixing players to cry is played out.

    Imo if a player is crying maybe ask why; but why force it?

    Speaking of forcing and making me want to cry…Tripp absolutely belongs in the dog house for his blaspheme. He sounds like a propaganda machine saying that doggydoodoo.

        Another consideration ‘for me to poo on’ is my favorite tv swing coach Breed justifying DJs weak move regarding the Olympics; and hating on the olympics for the pros in general.

        There’s going to be pros who will (foolishly) pass on the biggest sporting event in the world but increasingly there will be many top guys ready and willing to take advantage of the Olympic opportunity.

        Keep in mind The most viewed golf awards ceremony from 5 years ago worldwide has to be the Rio Olympics. And that trend will only continue.

        DJ has grown up a lot but he isn’t who I would follow here. It is unfortunate not to have the top player; but it is more unfortunate DJ thinks like this. The man has enough money.

        Brees said something like winning big pga tour stuff means DJ has to work less. That’s laughable. These guys make all the money you could ever need…in 1 week!!! That’s the lamest excuse ever; even more than the racist girls prep basketball radio guy who blamed his diabetes.

        Simpson sounds like he is out also but that only gives the big names we love a chance to take his spot.

        When it comes to the Olympics I want to know who gets it and who doesn’t. That’s reason enough to keep it open to everyone.

        Pop quiz hot shot who won the fed ex cup 5 years ago ? While you think about that we all know Justin Rose won the gold medal. And who got the silver. And who passionately got the bronze for US.
