The 2017 AT&T Byron Nelson gets started May 18-21, 2017, at the Four Seasons Resort in Irving, Texas.
The tournament dates back to 1944 when Byron Nelson himself, won the event. For the first few decades, it was played at a variety of courses in the Dallas area, before settling on its current site of TPC Four Seasons resort.
Defending champion Sergio Garcia and Dallas native Jordan Spieth will headline the all-star caliber betting field.
TPC Four Seasons Resort at Las Colinas will host the event and has done so since 1983. The layout measures 7,166 yards and will play to a par 70. The course has changed over the years. The revamped layout features large, undulating greens, encouraging players to use slopes to work their shots closer to the pin.
In last year’s tournament, Sergio Garcia chased down Brooks Koepka and beat him in a playoff to win his second AT&T Byron Nelson Championship. The 36-year old Spaniard overcame four bogeys and two balls in the water on the final nine holes to shoot 68 to get to 15-under par. Garcia becomes the first two-time winner in the 34 years since the event moved to TPC Four Seasons.
The AT&T Byron Nelson has a rich history of producing Hall of Fame winners. Byron Nelson, Sam Snead and Ben Hogan won the first three and were joined by legends Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson. Nicklaus won it twice, while Watson has won it a record four times. Other past champions include Ernie Els, Fred Couples, Payne Stewart, Nick Price, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Adam Scott and Jason Day.
The best players in the world are on their way to Texas for the 2017 AT&T Byron Nelson. Led by world No. 1 Dustin Johnson and defending champion Sergio Garcia, the betting field has six of the top 20 and several major champions as well.
Hometown favorite Jordan Spieth, last year’s runner-up, Brooks Koepka, Aussie Jason Day, the field is shaping up nicely. Add in Charl Schwartzel, Louis Oosthuizen and Ian Poulter. Continue...

As the top golfers in the world take on the 18-hole, par-70 course measuring 7,166 yards from the championship tees to claim a purse of $6.5 million, with the winner taking home $1,170,000.
The PGA golf event is hosted at the TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas, that is situated on an award-winning golf resort located in Dallas, Texas.
Originally designed in 1982 by Jay Morrish, with player consultants Byron Nelson and Ben Crenshaw, the course was given a dramatic redesign in 2009 by Champions Tour player D.A. Weibring and architect partner Steve Wolford.
The course was constructed as a TPC stadium course, incorporating nine holes from the original Las Colinas Sports Club layout.
You’ll find large, undulating greens, tree-lined fairways, a variety of creeks and ponds and panoramic views of the Dallas horizon, on a course that’s designed for pros and recreational golfers alike.
Starting in 1994, the PGA Tour has also made use of the resort's second course, Cottonwood Valley, for the first two rounds of the Byron Nelson Championship in order to lessen the impact of weather delays.
The PGA Tour Byron Nelson Championship started out as the Dallas Open, and Byron Nelson himself won the first one in 1944.
The tournament was known as the Byron Nelson Classic for much of its history. Nelson hosted the event from his seat off the 18th green, greeting each year's winner as the champion walked off the green, right up until the year of his death in 2006.
* Overall record: 262 - Loren Roberts, Steve Pate, 1999
* Tournament course record: TPC Las Colinas course - 61, Billy Mayfair, 1993; Charlie Rymer, 1996; Justin Leonard, 2001.

Billy Horschel secured his fourth PGA Tour title at the AT&T Byron Nelson in Texas, outlasting Jason Day on the first play-off hole.
Horschel's birdie on the 16th helped him to a one-under-par 69, setting up the play-off with the 29 Australian as both men parred the final two holes to end up on 12-under-par.
It was Day who made the crucial mistake, missing a four-foot par-putt on the first play-off hole and handing former FedEx Cup Champion Horschel his first victory on the tour since 2014.
This was the tournament’s final time at the TPC Four Seasons in Irving, Texas, where Horschel had missed the cut in his two previous appearances.
Horschel began the day one shot behind overnight leader James Hahn, who narrowly missed holing out his second shot on 18 to join Horschel and Day in the play-off, settling for third.
Defending champion Sergio Garcia, who won the Masters last month, wasn't able to mount a final-day challenge, carding a disappointing 74 to end up well out of contention.
