The PGA Tour packs up its bags from the flagship event in the Tour’s backyard and heads to Texas for a two-week stay in the Lone Star State. The best players in the world will tee it up at the TPC Four Seasons Resort for the AT&T Byron Nelson, boasting one of the tournament’s strongest fields in years. You can catch all the big names in the featured groups, which can be seen exclusively on PGA TOUR LIVE beginning early Thursday morning.

Nine of the top-20 players in the world, including four of the top-six, are in the field this week. All four — Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Sergio Garcia and Jordan Spieth — will have one of their first two rounds shown on  PGA TOUR LIVE.

Joining that highly-ranked quartet are other stars such as Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Brandt Snedeker, Matt Kuchar, Ian Poulter, Louis Oosthuizen, Jason Dufner and Cody Gribble. 


The first two days of the Byron Nelson will be live streamed on PGA TOUR LIVE beginning at 8:00 a.m. EST, giving subscribers just shy of 12 hours of live golf that otherwise would go unseen. Through the Tour’s partnership with Twitter, the first hour-plus of the PGA TOUR LIVE broadcast can be seen for free.
