Columnist Questions Timing Of Byron Nelson Championship Announcement
Published May 20, 2013
COURSE CHANGE WON'T ANSWER EVERYTHING: GOLFCHANNEL.com's Rex Hoggard wrote a change of venue "may not be the answer for all that ails" the event, but it seems officials are "at least asking the right questions." The tournament has become an "afterthought on the Tour schedule for most players." But it "seems officials and the deep pockets at AT&T, which is stepping in to sponsor the event, have realized the most important rule of the tournament business -- location, location, location" (GOLFCHANNEL.com, 5/17). Golf Channel's Charlie Rymer noted the timing of the tournament is “tough," as it comes "right after The Players.” The event is financially “very successful, so I don’t know if the date is going to change” (“Morning Drive,” Golf Channel, 5/20).
