With the year’s second major on the horizon, the PGA Tour heads back down to the Lone Star state for the AT&T Byron Nelson. Preparation for the PGA Championship is in full swing and the loaded field at TPC Craig Ranch reflects that.
World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler will make just his second start since he slipped on the green jacket at Augusta National (T-18, Zurich Classic). The Texan is sure to feel right at home and hopes to win for the fifth time in his last eight starts.
Joining Scheffler just outside of Dallas are Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, fellow Texans Jordan Spieth and Will Zalatoris, Xander Schauffele, and Brooks Koepka.

Don’t wanna hear it. Yes, I pick him every week. Yes, it’s been disappointing (boy oh boy did the Farmers hurt). However, riding with Scheffler for months paid off eventually, and paid off big. So, let’s hope the same thing happens with Willy Z.
In his last two starts, he’s finished T-4 alongside Davis Riley in New Orleans and T-6 at Augusta National.
Last year at TPC Craig Ranch, Zalatoris tied for 17th.

It’s tough to know if Speith’s last start was an anomaly or a foreshadowing of what’s to come.

After a tough stretch earlier this year, Burns has found his stride. Since missing the cut at the Genesis Invitational, he tied for ninth at Bay Hill, won the Valspar, and finished second alongside Billy Horschel at the Zurich Classic.
Burns finished solo second at the AT&T Byron Nelson last season.
