Byron Nelson Gift $2,000-5,000
Byron Nelson is considered to be 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 that had a dream, it wasn’t just about golf; when he 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. He never imagined he would end up making a living, and then some, enabling him to retire from the PGA Tour at the ripe old age of 34, citing he had made what he needed for his ranch!
A Byron Nelson Gift would help get a young person start on their journey to their dream, academically as well as athletically! This gift would fund academic help, nearly a full season of regional events, as well as golf coaching.
