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.

    2 takes from me this week:
    1 the legend of Casey grows, holding off numero 1 for back to back.
    2 the pga tour literally killing their parkland courses to make them seem links. If the tour wants links why not hold events on links? I cannot remember whom but one player called the grass dead. Dead. They work so hard year round to Jill the grass for the biggest events. They literally could not hold 4 days with these Sunday conditions because there would no longer be a course. Some of the bounces into the greens, quality shots by some of the most on form best players in the world just bounded off the green. Chips rolled out as if they were playing on cement cart paths.
    Yes it’s fun to see the best challenged but the integrity of the competition, and the lack of some excitement with you know, birdies, leaves a lot to be desired.

      I saw a lot of shots stop nicely. We’ll have to disagree once again, I think the tough conditions make for more excitement than we normally get out there….I’ve played this course probably 30 times over the years, it is very short by tour standards but the elevations make it tough, tough par threes and they can’t reach all the par fives without really good shots…..14 and 5 are three-shot holes for most…..totally enjoyed this one.
