No Significant Storm Damage To Byron Nelson Course

IRVING (AP) – Greens were pelted by hail and debris blew around the TPC Four Seasons course, but the site of this week’s Byron Nelson Championship escaped significant damage during heavy storms.

PGA Tour spokesman John Bush said crews working Wednesday on the greens and “fixed them like ball marks.”

Storms in the Dallas-Fort Worth area Tuesday night included tornado warnings and hail.

It was sunny on Wednesday, but the start of the Nelson’s pro-am tournament was delayed an hour while the course was improved.

Tournament spokeswoman Tracy Cobb said members of the Salesmanship Club, the charitable group that puts on the tournament, were helping rake out bunkers before the pro-am.
