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.

    So where is baxter and his twelve paragraph response that if there are no LIV golfers playing no one will watch? Does the guy even have a job or just spew vitriol on social media all day?

      I agree with you that Baxter’s takes are mostly waaaaaaaaaay too long, one just went in the trash.

      Sorry for my thoughts I acknowledge are longer than most.

      I love so many cool people are investing in this tiger and Rory venture.

      I will watch this regardless of LIv golfers. But I also believe LIv golfers will eventually enter. I hope the technology is increasingly mind blowing so it is extremely successful.

      I also agree with Tom Pop stroke will be as big as Top Golf.

    Tiger could host a cooking show and dish up 2 minute noodles and people would watch it. He is that type or person. So in that regard this will be successful. It might also be the only way for new golf fans to see him play and the skills he has, because his playing days outdoors are basically over.

    BUT, imagine how less wear and tear on his body and how much more we might get to see him play in his later years if we’d been playing 54 holes all along 🙂

      Tiger believes in real golf tournaments — which are all 72 holes AND a long-standing from day one requirement for OWGR points.

        Pga tour v liv aside.. one of golfs biggest issues going forward is the distance debate. The golf ball has been discussed at length, but for me club forgiveness is also a huge issue. Modern clubs are so forgiving, players can wail away at the ball with everything they’ve got and it flies 350m down the middle of the fairway. You can see its having a big impact on these guys bodies.

        So how does golfs various tours handle this. Do we accept that guys will now only have 15 year careers and are done at 40? Do they cut back their schedules to 15 events a year to get longevity? Surely that is not in any tours best interests when trying to negotiate tv deals. Maybe, just maybe, 54 holes is the answer to see our best players more often. Majors can stick to 72 holes, but these often meaningless events in between could be 3 rounds.

          Forky – and I think you’ll find it quite interesting that LIV does not check for non-conforming equipment. Nor does LIV drug test the players and enforcement of the Rules of Golf can be lax at times (great for Patrick Reed).
