Overview

Byron Nelson: The Most Remarkable Year in the History of Golf provides an unparalleled examination of the most amazing feat in golf history. In 1945, Nelson won a jaw-dropping 11 consecutive victories on the tour. Overall, he won 18 tournaments that season, finishing either first or second in 25 of the 30 PGA events that year. No golfer since has come close to such perfection. Nelson accomplished his feats over 60 years ago, long before Tiger Woods began setting records, before Jack Nicklaus won his sixth Masters title at age 46, before Arnold Palmer won the 1960 U.S. Open, before any of the historic wins by golf greats Tom Watson, Lee Trevino, Nick Faldo, or Greg Norman. Byron Nelson achieved what no other golfer will ever likely come close to doing again.
