NOTES
The PGA Tour remains in Texas for the second step of its Texas Two-Step. Last week, the Colonial was lucky enough to have an emotional victory from David Toms after the heartbreak of the week before at The Players Championship. Toms isn`t in the field this week, but defending champion and Masters runner-up Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar and Sergio Garcia highlight the 2011 field. Also scheduled to tee it up on Thursday is Jordan Spieth. You might remember him as the then 16-year-old amateur who was tied for seventh place after the third round last year. He is back in the field this year trying to atone for his two-over 72 on Sunday of 2010. Day finished with a final round of two-over 72 one year ago. He ended at 10-under-par 270 to earn his first victory on the PGA Tour, but it didn`t come easy. Day landed in the water on the 18th for the third time that week on Sunday, but escaped with a bogey. Blake Adams needed a par on the last to force a playoff, but he also hit his second into the soup. Adams made a double-bogey that closed out a round of two-over 72. He shared second at minus-eight with Brian Gay (63) and Jeff Overton (71). The ninth oldest tournament on tour -- not including the majors -- the HP Byron Nelson Championship, is one of only two events named for a player. The other event is the Arnold Palmer Invitational, which was known as the Bay Hill Invitational until 2007. Nelson has had his name attached to this event since 1968. Golf Channel has the first two rounds before CBS takes over on the weekend. Next week is the Memorial Tournament, Jack Nicklaus` event. Justin Rose won the title last year, his first of two summer victories.
