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.

    Hey Tom,

    thanks for not forgetting the real Phil—i blame Tim Finchem for not doing anything–which then further gives Philly the thought that he is above reproach. amazing….and as for Pebble—i do actually think it will work out. but my solution for shinny—just don’t have an open there ever again

      Amen, Teflon Phil, nothing sticks to him, looking around the rest of the internet world, they are piling on him, for sure.

    Congrats to Koepke. Great to see Phil made the cut. And I look at Phil to win at Pebble, home turf and all. Even Tiger will do well but not at the top. I really enjoy comments from the guys in the booths, but only positive ones. I don’t like criticisms from would be and almost winners. They were good and entertaining but not good enough, so stop trying to be sensationalists with your second hand comments, eh, Brandel?

      Good observations tc1942….Tiger will need and he’ll get a special exemption into next years US Open, his 10-year exemption has run out or he could somehow make a meteoric rise in the rankings by then.
