AT&T Byron Nelson 2017 brings the life and legacy of Mr. Nelson, Dallas area fixture and friend, who passed away in 2006, but has been a part of the golf tournament since it began in 1968.
One of the true legends of PGA, Mr. Nelson golf career unlike anyone who played the game before or anyone who has played since. While his awe-inspiring accomplishments in the game of golf are widely revered, Mr. Nelson was perhaps best known as a true gentleman of the game. His kindness and dedication to his community won the respect and admiration of his peers, present-day players and fans of all ages.
In 1945, Mr. Nelson accomplished an incredible winning streak that has not been challenged to this day and will likely stand forever. He finished that year with 18 victories, including 11 straight, and established a record for the lowest scoring average (68.33), which remained untouched for 55 years.
During his relatively brief professional career, Mr. Nelson had 54 career victories, including the 1939 U.S. Open, the 1937 and 1942 Masters, and the 1940 and 1945 PGA Championships.
