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.

    What greens!
    How they could have ever gotten away from this is beyond me ? Similar to Pinehurst no2, these old renovations towards cookie cutter shapes, fairways, were criminal.
    So glad places are getting restored to their unique characteristics.
    That being said many parkland courses should copy winged foots greens. Designers focus a lot on the shape of greens. Instead do whatever they did at winged foot. A lot of green complexes are overrated…these are not.
