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.

    I think that they should allow laser devices and GPS devices on every tour. Play is so darn slow due to the players and caddies constant calculation of every possible variable! I can only watch taped tournaments where I can fast forward to the last 90 minutes and the skip all possible commercial breaks. I really don’t give a da– how they figure out what to hit…just hit the dam_ shot!

    I was a young business guy in NYC and headed to the open at Baltusrol. I have probably seen 100 tournaments live, but that one always stuck with me. A pair of 63’s on day one for Jack and Weiskoff, a hole in one, and a four day battle with Aoki….right down to the final hole on Sunday. A tournament for the ages!

      I was there covering that and my story from the first round won my national championship from the Golf Writers Association of America….a real honor but I look back and remember Jack and Tom shooting those 63s like it was yesterday.
