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.

    Having been beat up by Hawaii winds plenty it is so about time these pga tour boys get the Hawaii events in some wind. Waialae may be a 68 par for tour guys in no wind but looks like par 74 or more this week.
    Morikawas first round was not quite equivalent to 59, but it’s close; reminiscent of that iconic Sneds round at Torrey a few years ago.
    I play later today on a course which makes Waialae look sheltered; but regardless of how I do today I’ll be able to remember some of the shots and scores from the Sony and feel a whole lot better about myself.
