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.

One would think this man will not only never work the Masters again, he is officially out of lottery consideration; though based on his actions he probably doesn’t even know about the lottery. What a dunce. He almost ended tigers career. Slow mo that thing and you see how close that came to a total disaster.

Our hero also knocked another guard down and tried to hold him back for some reason. He should never ever be allowed to live this one down. Everyone whine ever comes into contact with this man is responsible to make sure he knows you know.
    Jk. But not really ….
