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.

    It is a shame that this player was passed by the captain of the Ryder Cup team to place an undeserving player like Mickelson who performed horrible. When will politics be out of Golf?
    Schauffele and other young players who had proven themselves and had good records coming into the Ryder Cup deserved to be on the team, Mickelson did not, and maybe Tiger knowing he was tired should have had the courage to come in as an assistant and not a player, I think the outcome would have been very different. I don’t know who’s fault it is, if the captain or the USGA, but Mickelson has already caused a lot of damage to the Ryder Cup team with his ginger pointing and attitude when not sent to play, plus he is out of form, he did not deserve to be on the team.

      We totally share your opinion! You may have noticed that we picked Xander as one of our players to watch going into 2019 and he came through immediately. Yes, too much politics with Ryder Cup but USGA has nothing to do with it, it’s the PGA of America that owns it in our country, European Tour owns it over there….Mickelson’s day has come and gone when it comes to the Ryder Cup, that’s pretty obvious…..
