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 tigers number should have been north of a billion and hidekis north of half a bill.

    These Saudis being cheap with this hundred -million pinching costing them some key figures.

    It will be fun to see hideki at zozo, and don’t forget the presidents cup, some people may still watch that, and like you say we will see how future negotiations turn out.

    Sad to see the take-advantage-crew—including all these Japanese guys — leaving LIv but they all understood this is a league designed for the best of the best 48; and none of them have ever really been close to that.

    Side note: LIv should consider expanding to 16 teams so with 64 they get closer to that 7o number. And 64 is a great match play number.

    I also like12 teams but 54 players since that is their number; with 6 players as independents maybe trying to get into a team.

    2 days of LIv Boston down, all I can say is these players not playing and golf fans not watching are missing out.

    Tha fact more and more golf stars keep getting added to the roster only adds to the coverage.

    But again The pace of the coverage alone truly is so refreshing. Shot after shot after shot.

    Another gorgeous championship golf setting.

    The only significant delay last couple days was dj and bro reading a putt way too long, which I think they actually cut away from to another shot.

    Cam has done some cam things in his debut so far. Couple bad holes but he has been very impressive. Eagles. Hit flag sticks then chipped in. Super short game. And of course gorgeous putt after putt after putt.

    But Dj is hitting his fade and putting like someone to bet on. He looks on fire with the flat stick. I’m thinking he wins tomorrow. And another win for his team.

    Can’t wait for guys like Hideki, Tony, my so cal heroes XMan and Patty Ice and others to join.

    But I really can’t wait for all this to then get sorted out so we can have these super entertaining LIv events with everyone while also seeing TRUE full fields in the top pga tour events.

    Btw the Shark showed up skydiving to round 1.

    And then in one social media hop the very fit senior finally and officially introduced shorts to men’s professional golf; which left the coverage team wondering how long Monahan and the pga tour take to copy this now.

      and once again, here we have non-stop coverage from LIV-loving, Infidel-adoring, women’s-right-suppression-ignoring, Saudi-citizen-beheading-ignoring, Forky-friendly Baxter giving us the rundown on the latest exhibition circus. I did notice that after his usual opening 74, Lefty finally managed to shoot one-under par, boy they’re sure getting what they paid for with that money-wasting galoot….
