HP Byron Nelson Championship To Leave Irving In '19 For Southern Dallas Location
Published May 15, 2013
THE FUTURE IS NOW: Tournament officials yesterday said that the Nelson “will maintain the same position on the PGA Tour schedule in 2014.” In Dallas, Nichols & Townsend note the Nelson “benefited from the European Tour’s BMW Championship being switched a week later this year.” Not conflicting with the European Tour’s “flagship event added some big international names to the field” (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 5/15). But in Ft. Worth, John Henry notes just six "of the top 25 golfers in the world" are scheduled to play in this week event, with No. 7 Louis Oosthuizen the highest-ranked player with a tee time (Ft. Worth STAR-TELEGRAM, 5/15). GOLFCHANNEL.com’s John Hawkins noted the Nelson “used to be one [of] the true hotspots on the PGA Tour.” There were “huge crowds, great weather -- the first big gathering of top-tier players after” The Masters. But now “those days are gone.” Hawkins: “The biggest name in this year’s field is probably John Daly, which is saying something” (GOLFCHANNEL.com, 5/13).
