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.

    I do not want to disagree with Jack, especially since he is a member there, but I have to. If nothing else I need the hope.
    A lot of golf geeks want to see The Masters played in a unique way in this unique year; we will take a sans green Masters. We will take any Masters.
    As for the schedule, Augusta has one week on the schedule, Masters week. It is not Augusta Nationals problem that the pga tour saturates the calendar with event after event, all of which are built on the backs of the Masters and the other majors.
    Monahan is a good man but the concern is that he has not shown the biggest ability to recognize the big picture.Hopefully he can see the big picture moving forward. Once life resumes Fans want to see the Masters above all else.
    The tour will need to find a way to facilitate the Masters, the Olympics and the other 3 majors. If the tour plays hard ball with these events the tour would lose.
    If the tour did not saturate the schedule with regular events, maybe fans would long to see pga tour events. But at this point most pga tour events are a dime a dozen, while those other events are not simply because there is only one of each of them.
    This will be a tough year for golf fans, but it would be a whole lot better if we could just somehow someway get our majors in, especially the Masters, whenever that may be.
    I for one need that hope everyone in golf will work together to make it happen.
