The HP Byron Nelson Championship kicks off its second round this morning from the Four Seasons in Las Colinas and the one name that a lot of locals are watching is Jordan Spieth, pride of Dallas Jesuit and now former Texas Longhorn.

After day one, Spieth was five shots back of the lead finishing at even par with the leaders at five under par. The winds were definitely a factor in his first day on the course and Speith even admitted that the pin placements were a little out of the ordinary for first round action.

The surprise so far this morning? How about David Duval who is three under par through his first five holes on the day, just two shots off the lead.

The winner of this tournament last year, Sang-Moon Bae, finished his first round three over par and currently sits tied for 106th heading into his 1:40pm tee time this afternoon.

The one thing you won’t see over these four days at “The Nelson?” Rain. Something we’ve seen almost every year this tournament has come around. It should be a beautiful weekend for a great tournament and we could see a great finish come Sunday afternoon.
