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.

    Got to caddie in his pro am group a few years ago. The amateurs were quiet so I had a chance to do some small talk with kevin, which was super nice.
    He is a true personality. And man, what a small ball player.

      Met his caddie at the PGA Merchandise Show about four or five years ago; He’s a fitness guy and I think he’s been in Kevin’s ear for a long time and Kevin said after his win that he’s finally added a trainer to his “team”….he’s very slight and I think some training will benefit him….man can he putt!

        I can only think of Webb Simpson as the only player with his caddie in his ear more than Na.

        Both Kenny Harms and Paul Tesori have earned the right to be in their players ear. It helps these two players are wise enough to take full advantage of these experienced caddies; even if it is a little time consuming at times.
