Yesterday, one of the greats, Lord Byron Nelson passed away at the age of 94. He holds a golf record that none can ever match. Even Tiger can't dream.

11 tournaments in a row, 18 in a calendar year (1945). That's just not the only numbers that seperates him from the other crowd. His 68.33 ave that year still can't be matched by anyone to date. His 113 consecutive cuts made was only broken by Tiger Woods after standing half a century to time test. he quit golf in his prime at the age of only 34 in 1946. He is the only one to have a PGA tournament named after a person "Byron Nelson Classic". Even Bobby Jones association with Masters don't carry Bobby's name. Nickalus, Parmar, Hogan noone can say the same. Lord Nelson was the man and everyone knew that.
