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.

    Rory’s mission: dig in on distance.
    Something tells me Whan will give rory what he wants —or doesn’t want —to change.

    Players are such babies right now. The usga gets criticized for challenging players a little too much sometimes when the real issue in golf is the pga tour is not challenging players enough; in part because of the usga current standards.

    Distance gains or losses will not affect new viewership at all.

    But old viewers are growing bored of many pga tour events where it’s obvious the integrity of the courses are compromised for elite competition.

    Hopefully Whan can maintain his strong spine (except that 5th major atrocity) with the elite men and manufacturers in golf pressuring him and make the needed adjustments to technology.

    The way he sold out for that event in Europe and his history with manufacturing and his desire to please gatos Gordos could slow the slowing down of distance.
