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.

    Credit to Rory and Rahm keeping it close. Palmer in the other hand works so hard all week lately only to spend Sunday burning cash.

    Leishman is not sexy but a very worthy champion. He will need to be in the conversation in this next Torrey Pines US Open.

      Leish got a little shaky down the stretch, had that right miss going but give him credit for the clincher at 18…..not sure he has what it takes to win a major….he played poorly at Royal Melbourne, which was set up like a major…

        I wouldn’t say Melbourne was set up like a major, at least not the rough.
        If Leishman cannot win a major no Aussie can because Mark has to have the best chance of any Aussie; Cam Smith is in the conversation.
        Mark is big, has a reliable shot shape, he is calm, has nice small ball, and can putt. We never though Lowry would win one; mark could be the Aussie Shane.

          I still don’t think he’s major material….go check his record in the majors and it’s way below ordinary.
