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.

    The technology sounds great. Fox is doing some good things for golf coverage.
    Except buck. The guy is great for a lot of sports, baseball and football, but really not great for golf. His style just doesn’t mesh with golf.

    Zinger in great IMO, Tom made a case for him by bringing up his women’s open comment, certainly smarter than Haneys comment, but that’s not saying much.
    Zinger is a strong observer and provides some great tips for viewers, all reasons why fox and nbc believe in him.
    But nbc like CBS, have great golf anchors to match.
