Colonial Country Club, 7,209 yards, par 70, the 71st time this tournament has been played on this course. The Tour started playing there in 1946. Only Augusta National in 1934 has hosted a PGA tournament for a longer period of time.
Last week, 21 year old South African born and former NCAA team champ at Oregon, Aaron Wise, shot 23 under to win the Byron Nelson on Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas. He defeated second place finisher Marc Leishman by 3 shots. Wise, the ultra-talented youngster, shot 65,63,68,65, in a superior display of golf.

I'm going to take a 24 year old Texas college educated player, but it may not be the one you're thinking of. Believe in the way he's playing.

I like the Clovis, California native by way of SMU to take home the hardware from Colonial.
