About the author

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.

    The win clip alone will be tough to match but it’s so much more than that with Tiger isn’t it?

    He was so different than everyone, so much personality, so much magic.

    Hopefully golf can have something similar again but it will never be quite the same.

    We really are so lucky as golf fans to have lived the tiger era, an era which is not quite done yet. Hopefully.

      Lol, I got to cover Jack in his prime then watch Tiger come of age — three straight wins in the Amateur, to me, was incredible in and of itself, just think of all the great players who never won it once….there won’t be another Jack, don’t see another Tiger coming in my lifetime….maybe yours Baxter!

        Absolutely the 3 straight amateurs is ridiculous. Especially considering it followed 3 straight Junior amateurs. If tiger never hit a shit as a pro; if his career somehow ended before “hello world”, where would he rank today all time?
        Ahead of Bobby jones?
