Presidents Cup: Grading All Players For Their Week's Performance - 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.

    One aspect of the whole affair that seems swept under the rug, is the absolute boring cookie cutter players. Other than the Jordan and JT story line, which for a lack of other interest then becomes the focus of a Presidents Cup, this was about as exciting as painting a barn.

    Personality and interesting story lines seem to have gone with the LIV players.
    I know that sure it was nice to see the US side win, and the World side played hard, but the elephant in the room is the loss of talent on both sides to LIV.

    At some point there is going to need to be some sort of truce, parlay, perhaps a joint agreement on team play events, majors, and the like. I know there are many who think LIV should dry up and go away, but at this time it appears to be here to stay, and that is how I see it.

      LIV players with personality?? DJ? Incredibly boring; Brooks? Incredibly boring. Bryson? Zzzzzzz; You must not have seen Tom Kim emerge on the International side, personality and fire and we predict he’ll be next season’s Rookie Of The Year….I think the 40,000-plus per day on site would disagree with you. As for LIV, as it move to far away lands like Thailand, it will get even less attention… day the Crown Prince will wake up in a really bad mood and pull the plug on that thing….no business model…..north of $2.5 billion spent with no return (sounds like Congress)….I think five years from now there’s no LIV but the PGA Tour will still be there.
