■ Golfer & Record – AT&T Byron Nelson’s Lowest Hits

PGA Tour AT&T Byron Nelson has recently been building a special relationship with a Korean player. AT&T Byron Nelson has been running at TPC Craig Ranch (par 71) in McKinney, Texas since 2021, and Korean players are particularly strong. Lee Kyung-hoon (pictured left) successively set the course record for 72 holes in 2021 and 2022, followed by Roh Seung-yeol (right) this year, setting a course record tie record.메이저사이트

Kyunghoon Lee used TPC Craig Ranch as if it were a ‘home’. TPC Craig Ranch attracted AT&T Byron Nelson for the first time in 2021, and Lee Kyung-hoon recorded 25 under par in this tournament and won his first PGA Tour championship with the best record for 72 holes. Another year later, Lee Kyung-hoon broke his own record with 26 under par, achieving his second consecutive victory. Lee Kyung-hoon is the first Korean player to win two consecutive PGA tours, and the only one to win two consecutive victories. PGA Tour data analyst Ron Close commented, “AT&T Byron Nelson is known as the ‘Lee Kyung-hoon Open’.”

The AT&T Byron Nelson, held at TPC Craig Ranch, is named after the legendary golfer Byron Nelson, who played on the PGA Tour from 1935 to 1946. Nelson was well-loved for his gentlemanly manners as well as his outstanding prowess. Nelson set a record of winning 11 consecutive events on the PGA Tour in 1945. Nelson left a total of 52 wins on the PGA Tour, including 5 majors, and 31 of them were won in the two years from 1944 to 1945. Nelson retired from his active career at the early age of 34 to run a ranch in Texas.
