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’m glad you say ‘they’.
        In the headline you make (Phil) sound like an afterthought to Tiger Woods.

        As you know Phil still draws second only to Tiger. And that Tiger-Phil phenomenon draws something extra special.

        Hard to imagine Tiger draws near this much with anyone else in golf.

        Sergio May still be the next best draw with Tiger because of that special scissor-kicking PGA Champ early in their careers and the many testy run ins since.

        There’s Rory. He’s in vogue.
        Brooks. Jr Vogue.
        Jordan. Both Jordans actually: Mike and Spieth.
        And of course JT.

        There are many other opportunities to matchup with Tiger but Its hard to get as excited about any of these compared to tiger v Phil.
