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.

    It shouldn’t lead to no 16$million for this guy unless there’s a lot of signed stuff.
    This man deserves $1 million. Maybe $ 2 Imo. Again, unless he has some documents.
    Being on the hook for 20% for life is ridiculous. It should be illegal.

      It will be interesting to see where this goes. Don’t know about Utah but in Florida, civil litigation is totally on the back-burner; Courts have been closed down and criminal proceedings are taking total precedent as they open back up. With the money he has now, Tony should be able to have really good legal counsel and this has “settlement” written all over it….
