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.

    Stuck in neutral as regards the field toward the end is spot on. Seemed like lots of approach shots that left lots of long difficult putts or problematic chips. Stunned to see Patrick Reed hit that long putt that rolled right back to his feet. I had been visualizing him in a playoff until then.

    I was glad to see Tiger back as a serious contender and glad to see him smile. The comeback, I confess, is going better than I thought it would. If he can stay in the mix, injury free, and enjoying himself, it will be great for everyone in the golf world. As the golfers and the announcers said, his presence among the leaders lends a whole different energy for fans and the players. A fun weekend to follow.

      RM: It was pandemonium at Innisbrook, that’s for sure, new attendance records, TV ratings through the roof……yes, good to see Tiger back in the fray…….as for Patrick Reed — a buddy texted me and said “How can anyone pull for Patrick Reed?” I agree, Reed is pompous, hasn’t won a whole lot and his reputation comes totally from a couple of Ryder Cup performances…..he thought he was hot stuff when he did the club twirl on his second at the 72nd hole, didn’t know it was well short I laughed my butt off when he botched that putt…..him wearing red and black on Sunday when Tiger’s in the field shouldn’t be allowed…..it’s like he’s a cheap knock -off……
