AT&T Byron Nelson Odds: New Course Adds Intrigue For Strong Field

The AT&T Byron Nelson returns to the PGA TOUR schedule after being canceled last year due to the ongoing pandemic. Navigating Byron Nelson odds this week will require a new challenge, as the tournament will be played at a new home in McKinney, Texas just North of Dallas. TPC Craig Ranch will host, and fans will be allowed to attend with up to 25% capacity, or approximately 8,000 fans.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, No. 3 Jon Rahm and No. 5 Bryson DeChambeau lead the field along with 2021 Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama. Returning for his second event since knee surgery in March is Brooks Koepka, who adds star power to the field with nine of the top-25 players in the world rankings shooting for birdies at Byron Nelson’s event.
