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.

    No coincidence.

    Phils incredibly biased here but I kind of agree with Lefty. Of all the things to cut down distance they go with the most archaic basic thing in shaft length. How about club faces with trampoline effects, spin control golf balls, and the many other club technologies which have created the actual distance issue we are in?
    Yes it true as Tech gets even better players will be able to hit longer shafts even better.but for whatever reason phil is the only one to figure it out now, winning a major with a 47 inch shaft. So yes he’s going to be pissed, and I can’t blame him.
    Supposedly taller players can ask for exemptions. It’s kind of a mess.
    Jtused this doscussion to call out the “arm lock” putting style, which I agree with.

    The rich get richer.

    Young mans mistake from JT. Mr Palmer saved everything; one of the most genius things the King did, and he did many genius things.
