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.

    Remember I said DJ would shoot everyday in the 60s and still lose to my pick Rory. Dj had one day in the 70s.
    But I was right someone would do that feat and not win.
    Rory’s disappointing start seems like nothing new in his Augusta stories. There are 3 Rory’s at Augusta. There is in contention Rory, the one who will eventually win this thing.
    And theres 2 bad Rory’s: the no showing up at all rory, and slow start Rory, which we got this week. He said it himself after playing so well lately “where did that come from”. Like Tom said, it comes from the “you can lose the masters on Thursday” department. I call it early choking. Followed by 3 days of free wheeling.
    Too little too late. But at least he seemed to fight, something bryson did not.
    Absolutely agree Tom that Bryson should also study Bernard very carefully. Bryson loves to invent new things about golf to study, but sometimes the best lesson are the old ones.

      Simply look at the “Non-Bombers” who contended nicely. Yeah, Bryson needs to scale back at Augusta and try to play a strategic game rather than an all-out raw power assault…..his week reminded me of Muhammad Ali using the “Rope-A-Dope” on young George Foreman…..we all went nuts when Ali let Foreman bang away, little did we know that Ali knew George would burn himself out early…..ANGC let Bryson wail away and we saw the result.
