"Honorary Ambassador" Puts PGA In The Doghouse | 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.

    Lame idea, for sure, but just for the record, David Wright was an all star third basemen for the New York Mets in the circa 2007 time period. As a die hard Phillies fan I had to detest him just on general principles, but he was a very, very good ballplayer and seemed like a decent guy as well.

    I remember seeing him on TV playing with Donald Trump and a couple of other ballplayers when Trump hosted that show on Golf Channel called something like “Donald Trump’s World of Golf”. The Donald would host and play in a little match with some prominent pro athletes and present a trophy at the end of the match as I recall.

      Yes, I became aware of Wright’s resume after the Golf Channel folks kept putting it out there about a dozen times…..I couldn’t name one player for the NY Mets these days, do follow our Rays, the best team in baseball with no highly-paid stars.
