Byron Nelson Classic
Every spring in Irving, the Byron Nelson Classic is played in beautiful Las Colinas. The tournament is played at the Tournament Players Course (TPC) and Cottonwood Valley Course (CVC) at Four Seasons Resort and Club Las Colinas. The Byron Nelson is the only golf tournament that is named after a professional golfer. During his career, Byron Nelson won 52 tournaments. He won 18 tournaments in 1945 alone, including 11 in a row and established a record for the lowest scoring average at 69.33.
Since 1968, the Byron Nelson has completed 72 holes in 32 of 35 events, losing only four rounds of golf in that time, two in 1994, one in 1992, and one in 1990. Proceeds from the tournament benefit the Salesmanship Club Youth and Family Centers, which provide a wide variety of services for children and families in the Dallas area.
The Byron Nelson Classic drew 272,000 fans in 2002 with more than 80,000 in attendance for each of the two final rounds. It has been a sellout event since 1997 drawing more than 250,000 people a year with over 600 media credentials issued for over 200 media outlets across the world. Become a part of the yearly tradition and join the Byron Nelson next spring for some of the best golf that graces the lands of Texas.
