PGA Of America Sells Us Out To ESPN Pay-For-View - 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.

    I’m really against this as well.
    Even if the membership is reasonable I avoid it for a couple of reasons:

    1 It should fundamentally be free.

    2 There are already countless hours of coverage. If I need more I’ll just watch some more lpga, euro tour, whatever this week.

    3 Highlights and recaps cover tigers missed rounds and any must see shots, must see moments anyway.

    4 I wouldn’t know how to get the coverage on my tv instead of my computer, and more importantly dvr it.

    5 they are doing me a favor. I’ll watch every free minute. I’ll do it. I don’t care. Sometimes it can be a bit too much, so my family say. So thank you to espn and the pga of America’s for giving me time to do a few other things this week.

    Really I don’t know why anyone would pay to be over saturated with golf on their computer screen. I’m just not into that.
