The AT&T Byron Nelson golf tournament to allow fans to mark comeback to the event when it takes place for the first time at TPC Craig Ranch in May.
According to reports from the Tournament officials, they will allow up to 10,000 fans each day at the course in McKinney for the four-day event. That's about 25 percent of its capacity.
All state-guided COVID-19 protocols will be followed, including masks mandates unless fans are eating or drinking. Tickets will be available for sale to the general public.
The pandemic forced the cancellation of last year’s tournament, which was to be the last held at Trinity Forest in Dallas.
Organizers are happy that the pandemic-situation is under control to some extent and they can now allow fans to come back on the course.
Jon Drago, the tournament director said, "I think it's better, it's clearly better for us. You know, we're in the business of running golf tournaments. Better for the charity that benefits from it, but I think it's better for the players that are out there as well. They get the energy from the people cheering them."
All proceeds of the tournament benefit the Momentous Institute, a non-profit that gives children the tools to overcome trauma and succeed in life.
