The EDS Byron Nelson Golf Classic golf tournament is a tribute to one of the great's of the game.  With the passing of Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, and Sam Snead, and in 2006 Byron Nelson, now all of the great pioneer's of the modern game as we know it today are now gone - though their legends live on.  

Byron Nelson's career lapsed the tail end of Jones, Hagen, and Sarazen's playing days on up through the inception of modern televised golf.  Byron Nelson and Ben Hogan grew up in this area and often competed in a local tournament's from their day's as caddies.  

Byron Nelson once won 11 tournaments in a row and 18 overall, with a scoring average of nearly only 67 strokes in 1945.  He, like the great Bobby Jones, retired at the peak of his career for a different calling.  

Nelson later achieved acclaim as a great teacher of the game with his most notable students being Ken Venturi and Tom Watson.  Venturi called Nelson the inventor of the modern golf swing and the purest ball striker he's ever seen with the great Ben Hogan being the greatest manager of the game he'd ever seen.  As Ken Venturi once explained, "Hogan was not a teacher.  Hogan was an answer-er.  You had to ask him.  What do you feel like when you do this, this and this?  Then he would tell you how he felt.  Nelson would volunteer the information.  'Here's what I want you to do.  Here's what I want you to feel.'  A good teacher will always work his lesson around you."
