AT&T Byron Nelson moving to Trinity Forest in 2018


The AT&T Byron Nelson will be moving to newly-built Trinity Forest Golf Club in 2018, one year earlier than originally planned.

The new links-style venue, designed by Bill Coore and two-time Masters champ Ben Crenshaw, is located just outside downtown Dallas and set to formally open this week. The tournament's 20-year contract with TPC Four Seasons Resort runs through 2018, but according to the two sides "came to an agreement" to end the contract a year early.

An official announcement was made Wednesday at Trinity Forest and attended by Dallas resident Jordan Spieth, whose swing coach, Cameron McCormick, became Trinity Forest's director of instruction last year.

Sergio Garcia won this year's event in a playoff over Brooks Koepka. The final edition of the tournament at TPC Four Seasons will be May 18-21, 2017.
