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.

    You didn’t like my comment back to you Tom about being so rude to Vigay? That figures you couldn’t take a little criticism?

      Our comment section was down with some technical issues; I gladly post all comments. Vijay himself has been pretty rude and surly over the years, it’s the truth. Witness the fact that he does not allow his caddies to eat at any time on the course or even use the facilities (restroom) at any time. And, oh yes, they are forbidden to talk at all with any other caddies in the group. Truth be known, Vijay simply isn’t a very nice guy. We weren’t the least bit rude to him, simply revealing his lack of respect for others.

        Criticizing Vijay for playing or collecting money from an event he is entitled to play is unfair, and considering he is one of the few minorities in American golf, it comes off even worse.

          Not a fan of The Veej; It’s pretty much just like him to enter this event; Vijay could give a rats patootie about anyone else, much less young Korn-Ferry guys. Yes, he is entitled to play but should he? Our thoughts are a resounding “NO”…..I hope he gets beat by 50 of the kids!!!
