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.

    Can’t wait to see the Shwab.
    But I can cross that Korn Ferry event off the list of must see tv now that VJ isn’t there to provide interest. Hope all the Twits out there are happy.

      I think deep down inside Vijay discerned there was no upside for him there….supposed he missed the cut, the abuse would have been non-stop; He can simply go to Hilton Head the following week and quietly miss the cut there and it won’t matter, will it?

        I agree Vijay realized there was no upside for him but not for the shame of missing the cut.

        There would be no shame in missing the cut. VJ knows these Ferry boys are no push overs.

        The Singh critics are too shortsighted to see there was more upside for the Korn Tour and its players by Vijay playing than for Singh himself.

        It wasn’t worth it for him. I imagine he was hurt by it. But he isnt the type to go on every media possible to talk about it.

        What the golf boys coming up should realize is Any big name PGA Tour player should be welcome with open arms by the developmental tours. Not only do stars help with ratings; Maybe developing players learn something. Isn’t that the point of a developmental tour?

        I would like to hear the commissioner address this specific issue.

          Korn Ferry telecasts aren’t there for ratings, if they were, they wouldn’t make it; It’s content for The Golf Channel and nowhere else….as for the Veej, he didn’t need to be out on a developmental tour….he’s a Hall of Fame player, either go Seniors or regular tour events ….. simple as that…

            He has a right to play T; It’s as simple as that.
            But the real reaction is to your ratings comments. Of course Korn ferry very much so cares about its ratings. Everyone cares about ratings; even teenage girls with their own social media’s care about ‘ratings’ of sorts.

            Will be the first to admit I’ve never watched an entire broadcast for any round of a Korn-Ferry event, and Craig Perks is an old buddy of mine.
