What, you mean you're not knowledgeable about American sportsmen who retired 60 years ago? :pop:

Used to be one of the honorary starters at the Masters along with Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen until a couple of years ago - Sam and Gene are very dead, so I don't have much optimism for Byron.......do you think his parents were dyslexic and meant to call him Bryon?
It is surely better to be pissed off than pissed on

Byron's thread is a lot like war, short bursts of excitement followed by long periods of boredom. I found this though Byron Quotes.
What I'd most like to know is what was the chicken beating guy doing?
They burned the mother down.

My God, he looks like he's beating a chicken.



Beating a chicken perhaps?

Byron was a very popular name for males in the early 20th Century.

He would also be a very popular pick if he checked
out death # 11 on this years list.

I was wondering when someone was going to revive him from the bottom of the thread list. I guess there's not that much special about him. He's an old guy who's still around. No speculative health problems, no recent activities, but also nothing to suggest how much time he's got left.

One day he's going to cark it and a lot of people are going to post on this thread mentioning that they were surprised/that they had forgotten that Byron was on the list.

Unfortunately the link is a subscription one, but Nelson is doing a radio interview this week & apparently still runs his "Byron Nelson Classic" event, so one has to presume that he is possibly another case of "Old doesn't mean dead",

I've heard he also plays the occasional round of golf, more for charity purposes and the odd guest appearance.

It's always funny until someone gets hurt, and then it's hilarious.

Someone went into Wikipedia and listed both Byron Nelson and Joseph Barbera as dead.

User history here.

Hmmm... both DL candidates... I wonder who might have done such a thing... <_<
