The tour now moves west to McKinney, TX for the ATT Byron Nelson.   This event has raised/donated over $167M to charity since its 1968 debut... pretty cool! TPC Craig Ranch is a Tom Weiskopf designed course and considered the most challenging test of golf in Texas.  It was Tom's hope that the course would eventually be selected to host this namesake event - which it will at least for the next 4 years. The field includes last years winner K.H. Lee along with a healthy handful of the top 20.  The weather forecast looks much better than the slop-fest at Wells Fargo and I'm sure the players will love that.

Not really sure who to pick on this one but think (hope) Brooks decides it's time to hoist some hardware.  With the PGA Championship just around the corner, there a number of "big name" players who haven't really played to form, that are no doubt wanting to get things rolling downhill.

Don't forget to make your pick for this weeks winner https://runmypools.com/JRMPNWWF.  Good luck!

K.H. Lee stays patient on way to win at AT&T Byron Nelson

I think it's time for Niemann to win again, but I like the way Aaron Rai plays, and how can you not root for Morgan Hoffmann.

The big guns are playing to hone their game for next week; they may do just fine, but I'm not picking them.

I just realized I forgot to make a pick for this weeks event... can't even follow my own reminder 🤣.  How come nobody is picking Will Z lately?

Scheffler is hard to pick against, he'll score well but I'm off favorites. Dustin is coming off a wedding [just the celebration part - they've been together over a decade] and I think he's trying to get back to focus for a full four rounds; just not this week. JT has an upcoming wedding for distraction so he's out. Therefore I'm going with Sam Burns to win ----hold it Steve, he's not even in the 1st group. Xander looks good in bucket 1. Burns in 2. 3 is going to need some work - no love for any of them on current form. Bucket 4 is another mystery - got to check recent performance. Good luck to all.

 

O/T Phil needs face his gambling addiction. No sign of it yet. Barkley and Daly are cautionaly examples though Charles has pulled out of his tailspin recently.

Yeah, it would be cool, but I think Max is gunning for the PGA next week and trying to keep in form.  Winning 3 in a row is likely not going to happen; even Tiger didn't win 3 weeks in a row.

Oh ya. I totally forgot about that to be honest.

Sebastian Munoz shoots his second "60" of the season... nicely done 👏.  But, as hot a start as it is, two 64's are in behind him and there are some still playing who look like they could get close. It's looking like Craig Ranch is going to get sliced up faster than a stick of pepperoni on 2 for 1 pizza night.

And JT... what up with the Van Rooyen leggings 😱

-35 anyone??  Will a new 72 hole scoring record be set tomorrow?  If it does happen, it won't be from the current record holder.  I mentioned this in our FTx chat but TPC Craig Ranch should seriously think about a name change TPEC (executive) 😆.

WE HAVE A B2B WINNER!! Congratulations K.H. Lee!! 

He was a man on a mission and played really solid.  He joins Watson, Nicklaus and Snead as the only players to defend the ATT Byron Nelson. I honestly thought they would eclipse 30 under but perhaps it was Sunday nerves showing?  Jordan chasing all the way gave the local patrons plenty to get buzzed over, but it wasn't to be.

I didn’t watch… what was the deal with all the double digit under par rounds?

The deal was that TPC Craig Ranch got played like an airport executive course.  They were on pace after Saturdays round to break Cam Smiths tour record (-34) but things slowed a bit today... "slowed" being a relative description.

... and 50 yards of roll.  I bet the players were happy to get their driving distance stats up after last week.
