PGA Epilogue: Missed Putts, J.T.'s Gem And A Flag For Bones - Dog Leg News

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.

    Mito had setbacks as everyone did but I was impressed how he handled himself throughout the day. Just not quite as good as JT thanks in part to Bones and his old man.

    Cam young is definitely the front runner for ROY but Mito and others still have a chance.

    Amazing major career so far for Zalatoris. If he can just make those short putts smoother, he has a chance to be a legend. Figure it out already brA!

    JT is already a legend and a hall of famer. No doubt about that anymore.

    Happy for Bones but (and there’s always a but) imo he needs to show he remembers Phil gave him a lot more than flags over the years. As for the unpaid money Bones’ boss and friend was likely going through a rough time; epic gambling addictions will do that; but some may arguable it’s not tasteful these issues came out.

    What no one seems to want to talk about about is how much money Phil has paid Bones. The caddie is worth a cool 5$ mill according to the google. Not to mention the Phil the Thrill ride Bones enjoyed for decades.

    I’m just saying, I get we are entering an era where Phil is a villain, but let’s keep things in perspective.

      Phil also stiffed Bones for major money, enough to send your girls to Stanford without scholarships!!

        Phil owes A little less than a million…maybe the side door with that. But not sure that sides open anymore.
        I would think over time Phil would pay Bones his debt. He just got himself a bit behind.
        Again. Phil thinks he is so smart with the gambling odds. In reality he’s so dumb. Or stupid as he likes to call isle for sometimes.

          That $40 million over four years was documented — what we don’t know is how much Phil has lost/squandered over, let’s say a 10-15 year period.
