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.

    Love em or hate em.. villians create entertainment. And LIV’s got em all. All that is left on the pga tour is a bunch of yes men who do everything they are told and it’s become dead set boring.

    The Dubai Desert Classic was the best golf tournament I have watched since The Open, it actually got me excited to be watching golf again. The DP World tour might be thinking they hitched their horse to the wrong cart, or deep down hoping they lose the case to ban LIV players so Pelley can at least tell Jay ‘he tried’. None of the drama in Dubai happens without the LIV guys playing.

      No excitement, you obviously missed the start of the PGA Tour season…..Rahm head-to-head with upstart at TOC, then again at AmEx, then Homa roaring from behind at Torrey Pines….Torrey, an incredible venue, LIV goes to courses that can hold a candle to PGA Tour stops like Torrey and Pebble Beach and the Phoenix Open coming up has finishing holes that create pure drama, not to mention that north of 700,000 will pass through the gates next week…..and remember Forky, if Dubai was a 54-hole event like the LIVers are used to, Rory would have run away with it….
