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.

    Not the win I was looking for, still salty with the grandfather of Olympic snub, but what can you say? Adam can hit it.

    How Scott can take eternally long breaks and maintain the most flawless looking swing is beyond me.

    If there is one knock on Riviera is that great putters seem to lose their advantage; hence guys like Adam or bubba win.

    That being said, I wouldn’t change a thing at Riviera, except for maybe tigers schedule. Everyone involved with the tournament need to give the host time to hone his game; not more time. Time.
    This is not the course to Not practice for days; squeeze in a 10 minute warmup before a pro am the day before competition.
    That’s so much socializing for a guy whom hasn’t made his living socializing. Tiger needs to figure something out or he will never even have a chance for one Hollywood ending; something a lot of us really want to see.
