“We are thrilled to announce the largest pre-tournament sales in the history of the EDS Byron Nelson Championship,” said 2006 Tournament Chairman Pat Bolin. “Golf fans throughout the Metroplex have shown their love for this annual rite of spring in North Texas. We have a very limited number of individual tickets available through Ticketmaster. Anyone who is interested in attending the Championship should purchase their tickets as quickly as possible.”
