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.

    Definitely will be rooting for Brian Morris.

    As far as betting interests Reed and Fitzpatrick seem like bullies here but Reed is coming off an MC and a 68th.

    Fitzpatrick just won on one of the greatest tracks on earth; so maybe the Brit is a bit too relaxed down in the Bahamas. But he really does seem poised to finally get his first pga tour win.

    Higgo can also separate himself from this field, although like Reed he too is coming off a MC and a 75th in his two pga tour events so far this season.

      Baxter: As you know, golf is a week-to-week proposition, can’t count the times a guy with missed cuts has shown up an won a PGA Tour event…’s fleeting….as Tom Watson once told me: “Golf goes like this (the swing) — you get it, you lose it, you get it back again, you lose it, you get it back again.” I thought that was pretty interesting coming from “Young” Tom Watson.

        I agree with everything Tom and Tom say. Agreed that recent form cannot be relied on because it’s a crazy, crazy, crazy game.

        For me the single biggest factor in picking winners is winners. Like I love Cameron tringale, his game, everything, but the guy has not won a pro event; which includes 314 tries on the pga tour alone, so even if Tringales form is good, as it is now coming off a second in Japan, that’s not someone I’m betting on to win.

        Fool me once shame on you, fool me 314 times….
