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 don’t know is Phil ever goes full time on the champions tour. There will always be pga tour events for Phil which will take away from a full schedule with the senior guys.

    I never see Phil playing 36 events on the Champions tour; much less ala Langer at 64. If anyone thinks Langer is slowing down, I don’t think so.

    But there can be a case made for Langer to have his best chance to catch Hale, maybe play a little less. Only 4 dubs from Irwin now, it’s only a matter of time.

    I still think that even if Phil never plays a full schedule he will still be in the all time wins conversation for the champions tour someday. He’s that good.
