Previewing AT&T Byron Nelson Round 1

Two of the main characters from the drama that unfolded at Augusta National last month are making a return to action at the Byron Nelson on Thursday: Jordan Spieth and Hideki Matsuyama.

Matsuyama, of course, won the Masters for the first major title of his career. As a result, he took a few weeks off from playing on Tour to go home to Japan and celebrate.

As for Spieth, this week he revealed that he contracted Covid-19 last month, forcing him to quarantine at home and to miss a few weeks of golf in order to recover. But now Spieth is healthy and ready to get back out there, and he has good reason to be optimistic. Before his time away, the three-time major champion won the Valero Texas Open then finished T3 at the Masters.

For Thursday’s opening round at TPC Craig Ranch, Spieth will tee off at 1:33 p.m. ET alongside Scottie Scheffler and Will Zalatoris. Matsuyama will follow in the next group with Jon Rahm and Sung Kang beginning at 1:44 p.m. ET.
