Las Colinas Championship

“To find a man’s true character, play golf with him. ” – P.G. Wodehouse

The HP Byron Nelson Championship can trace its roots back to 1944, when Byron Nelson won the Texas Victory Open at Lakewood Country Club. “The HP Byron Nelson Championship is now the ninth longest-running active tournament on the PGA TOUR schedule. Aside from the three U.S. majors (the U.S. Open, PGA Championship and the Masters), only eight PGA TOUR events were established prior to 1944. While 10 years elapsed before an annual Dallas-based event began again in 1956, the stage was set for the introduction of the current tournament, which began as the Byron Nelson Golf Classic in 1968. Since then, 46 Byron Nelson tournaments have been played, all of which contributed to the event’s current reputation as one of the most highly competitive tournaments on the PGA TOUR.”
