2014 HP Byron Nelson Championship
Though the field for the 2014 HP Byron Nelson Championship has yet to be revealed, the annual tournament is bound to attract the world’s best golfers with its $6.9 million purse and role as a featured stop for those seeking FedExCup glory. For three of the tournament’s past four winners—including 2013 champ Sang Moon Bae—the Nelson title represented their first PGA Tour victory. The tournament also holds its status as a significant proving ground, as three of the past six champions have major titles to their name. <p>
All four rounds of the tournament will be played at the TPC Four Seasons. The course promises late-round drama, as both the 17th and 18th greens incorporate water hazards and are surrounded by stadium seats, where spectators can watch as golfers attempt to drain birdie putts or coax errant golf balls out of the creek.<p>
HP Byron Nelson Championship
Established in 1944, the HP Byron Nelson Championship traces its roots back to 1944, which makes it one of the PGA Tour’s longest-running events. The tournament is named after the late Byron Nelson, a Texas native with 54 professional golf victories to his legacy, including the 1939 U.S. Open, the 1937 and 1942 Masters, and the 1940 and 1945 PGA Championship. Since its inception, the tournament has been a regular stop for the world’s best players. Adding to its rich, historical legacy, the Championship has raised more than $132 million for charity over the years, more than any PGA Tour event. <p>
