Byron Nelson was named Athlete of the Year in 1944 and 1945 by the Associated Press. He won nine tournaments in 1944 and six in 1946, just prior to his retirement from tournament play; and in 1945, he won 18 PGA-sanctioned events, finishing second in seven others. Finally, after six months off the tour, he returned to play in the 1947 Masters, finishing second.
By 1945, Byron Nelson had done something no other golfer has ever come close to duplicating: He won 11 PGA tournaments in a row, and he still holds the record for lowest scoring average in a year. Now the man credited with inventing the modern golf swing takes us back to the time when men like Snead, Hogan, Sarazen and Jones played the game. 16-page photo insert.
