This years AT&T Byron Nelson event at Craig Ranch was truly special for us this year. We were able to start conversations with the Salesmanship Club of Dallas to be a legit sponsor of this event next year. It would be our crowning achievement. Lemme tell ya how it went down.
I’ve worked as a volunteer for a few years at this event so it was an easy decision for me to renew my application for this year’s event. In the middle of a thankfully busy part of our year, I didn’t have time to look at my schedule for the Byron until a couple weeks prior to the event. And when I did, my schedule was empty.. odd
I emailed the Dept head and let her know I wasn’t scheduled for any shifts. She stated that it was bc last year I was seen promoting Tas-Tees by wearing the hat. I was on tee boxes and behind the ropes all week w a logo that wasn’t a sponsor at the event. I quickly turned the correspondence to how we can become legit sponsors for the Byron & that I wouldn’t wear my Tas-Tee hat (now available online haha) while on duty as a volunteer. Fair enough… but we’re gon be ALL UP in that place next year!
As it was I spent my volunteer time tending ropes between the practice green & driving range, which proved to be a good spot. I watched Alex Noren for over half an hour make this “feel vs real” move that I had to incorporate into my preshot mess, lol.
Wednesday was the better day to chat with the guys obviously as Thursday started their tournament play. I got to walk around (after my shift 😉) and I watched Hideki for a while before catching up with Keith Mitchell.
