The Byron Nelson Gift

$2,001-5,000

Byron Nelson is known as one of the greatest ball strikers of all time with the sweetest swing, winning an amazing 11 titles in a row on the PGA Tour! A humble man who had a dream, it wasn’t just about golf; when Nelson left home with $2,000 to his name, he dreamt of a full working ranch in Texas near his childhood home. He estimated that he could live off the $2,000 for almost a year while traveling the country playing golf. Nelson never imagined he would end up making a living, and then some, enabling him to retire from the PGA Tour at the young age of 34, citing he had made what he needed for his ranch.

This gift will help a young student athlete start on the journey to their dream, academically as well as athletically. Depending on the individual's needs, this gift will fund academic tutoring, nearly a full season of regional events, private golf coaching, and a juniorgolfhub.com player profile.
