The Byron Nelson is in danger of floating away, right down the Trinity River this week with the unholy amounts of rain the Dallas/Fort Worth area has received of late. Brendon Todd noted on Tuesday that the heavy water would certainly affect scores. "You're going to see a hundred guys under par and you're probably to get some of the bombers up there near the top of the board," said Todd.
Brendon Todd, reigning champion of the AT&T Byron Nelson, is an Atlanta resident and former Georgia golfer who is counting down the days to next month’s debut at the Masters Tournament. Todd, 29, acknowledged Thursday that he would not be making plans to test his mettle at Augusta National Golf Club, the place he described as “the mecca of golf,” without last season’s two-week run of success at the PGA Tour stops in Dallas-Fort Worth.
