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.

    World ranks have proven not to matter in the Ryder Cup.

    Also, I’m not sure exactly how it all works but it seems the rankings are misleading because the pga tour generally gets more points.

    But when the tours come together, the euros/internationals more than hold their own.

    Europe is certainly not sweating the rankings, it’s business as usual.

    Meanwhile the US is sweating all kinds of little things going into the Ryder cup, per usual.

    go USA!

        That’s actually a trick question Tom. Because who’s the underdog? A case can be obnoxiously made for both.

        I just hope you are not rooting for the euros. It’s one thing to predict the euros win —but a Floridian rooting for euros is just sad.

    U catch your boo brooks latest comments?
    For all that supposed mental strength brooks sure sounds weak about team play and —while big goals are great —delusional about catching tiger and Jack…considering brooksies strong body is more injury prone than anyone.

    At this point put in Patrick, put in Billy. Anyone but brooks. For a guy who appreciates all sports —a supposed jock playing golf— he really doesn’t get it more than all the other golfers combined. IMO.
