Golf betting resumes this upcoming weekend with the HP Byron Nelson Championship from TPC Four Seasons Resort Las Colinas at Irving, Texas. Golf betting on the HP Byron Nelson Championship is for a tournament with a total purse of $6.5 million, a winning share of $1,170,000, and a total of 500 FedExCup points.
There is an excellent golf betting field for this year's HP Byron Nelson Championship headed by defending champion Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson, and Rory Sabbatini. Past golf betting champions of this event that are in this year's field include Mickelson, Jesper Parnevik, Ted Purdy, Vijah Singh, Fred Couples, Shigeki Maruyama, and Scott Verplank.
2008-2009 golf betting PGA tournament winners include such notables as Stuart Appleby, Brian Bateman, Michael Bradley, Brian Gay, Mark Calcavecchia, Dustin Johnson, Davis Love III, Rory Sabbatini, and DJ Trahan. It all shapes up for one of the best golf betting fields ever for this event.

The Bryon Nelson is now the eighth longest running golf betting event on the PGA Tour. Zach Johnson took last week's Valero Open and now leads the FedExCup golf betting standings as he took over the top spot from Geoff Ogilvy.
