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.

    I would say almost no doubt someone we know almost nothing about will contend. If the course is as tight and tough as advertised, it could be someone outside the usual suspects.

    How cool with it be if Fitzpatrick backs his US Am win here. He kinda looks like an amateur kid still.

      A lot of numbers are being thrown out regarding winning score, most think less than 5-under par…..we shall see; Great venue, I think it will take a great player.

        Yes it will be tough and it will be a great player. No doubt about that. This is an absolutely marvelous place which again today’s camera technologies/drones are bringing to light. It’s ridiculous the Usga took over 3o years between visits to the true home of US Golf.
