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.

    Lol. Toms June 15 article
    “pGA Tour safety protocol proves itself at CS Challenge”
    Is still on the most popular list on this page.

    Who knows whom and what Watney contacted?
    Next headline:
    Now we begin to see the pga tourS safety protocol has a long way to prove itself.

      One guy is not need to throw water on the protocol; Look at the other sports that haven’t even started — Clemson University, MLB, and so on…..

        I’m looking at them no different.
        It’s rushed. Watney spent 2 days around the site, almost a full day after feeling sick enough to get a test. Lerner mentioned they need to look at that, which they obviously do.
        If a player is feeling anything, they must withdraw. There is no way the tours protocols can be considered good with guys playing and left icing an extra day just in case they are negative. Seems pretty dumb really.

          Justin Thomas refutes you, says he feels totally safe with Tour protocols.

            That is my golfer (if tiger out)
            But he is also 27. Im becoming a Man this week; I’m 40!
            Of course they feel safe. I’m going to courses for $0-50 per hour. I would run to the safety of a golf course for a chance to win 1.5$ mill.
            And I don’t run much these days.
