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.

    Everyone has their style.

    The three birdies comment seemed more like a way to keep viewers engaged; but it was also true. 16 was a bit tougher but 17 at 125 and 18 being a reachable 5 were birdie holes even in the wind and rain.

    Finch did not factor KH was ready to make birdies himself on the last 2 holes.

    Zinger can provide some of what we miss from Johnny Miller; but Miller is an icon behind the mic.

    It’s gonna be hard to find an analyst like that with that kind of track record.

    The only option would be the man himself basically coming out of retirement for majors; Ryder Cup and whatever he wants. He is the best golf analyst ever; a goat.

      Right on concerning Finch, I’m also sick of the cheerleading and the stating of the obvious.
      Ben Wright was my favorite.
      He was Miller-like with a twist of home spun ‘telling it like it is.
      Sorry ‘Big Mama’
