  • My Shot: Byron Nelson

    A voice of experience on handling the wind, tinkering with your swing, and why cows and chickens are different.

    I stopped playing golf two years ago. I miss it very much. If I make it to heaven, I won't miss it anymore. There's no golf in heaven, but you don't mind, because you're so happy.

    One reason I've lived so long is that I never dissipated. I never smoked, I never drank and I never chased women. The other reason is heredity. Good genes are half the battle.

  • Impact: The Legacy of Lord Byron

    The PGA Tour sets up shop this week in the Lone Star State for the HP Byron Nelson Championship. Lord Byron won 52 times during his Hall of Fame career, and his performance in his 1945 season still serves as the model of consistency -- not to mention dominance. Nelson recorded 18 wins that year including the likely never-to-be-broken steak 11 in a row! Consistency was Nelson's signature off the course as well. His style was simple, traditionally and totally cool: a white cap, dark sweater, tan trousers.
