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.

    Thanking God Tiger survived and praying he can recover relatively soon.

    This will obviously take more critical time away from Tiger but no doubt he is already planning his next move.

    Times like these – -a year removed from Kobe— remind me how much I for one love Tiger, as I loved Kobe.

    Sure I loved them first because they were great at their sports.

    And like so many have been disappointed with them at times. But that’s also why I love them. They are people. They are not perfect.

    I love that Kobe wasn’t perfect. He wasn’t Jordan. He wasn’t the most sharing with the ball. He ratted shaq. He made many mistakes. But like Tiger Kobe still had mostly love from people because most folks understand no one is perfect.

    I love Tiger, not just because of his greatness, his pursuit for all the records; but because he is the perfectly imperfect man that he is —just Like the rest of us —still trying to accomplish unimaginable feats.

    Get better Tiger.

      If indeed he suffered a shattered ankle and two leg fractures, one of them compound, Tiger will be on the mend for a long time. Ankle injuries are the worst and if it was his left ankle, it could be a long time before he can even walk properly. He was driving a 2021 Genesis SUV, cockpit was very much intact, new safety features kept this from being far worse for him. First things first, get well and hope it didn’t have any detrimental effects on his back as well.
