Byron Nelson Qualifying

Monday qualifying for the Byron Nelson Championship took place on - you're not going to believe this! - Monday at the Timarron Country Club in Southlake.

Four spots were up for grabs, and one of those went to PGA Tour veteran Cameron Beckman of San Antonio. Beckman lost his fully exempt status last year and is splitting his time between the Nationwide Tour and those PGA Tour events that he can get into. Beckman shot a 66 in his qualifying round.

Also playing their way into the Nelson were Martin Flores of Mansfield, Clark Dennis of Fort Worth and Chris Parra of Irving, all of whom shots 67s. Flores is a former Class 5A state champion, and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports it will be the first PGA Tour appearance for Flores and Parra. Dennis previously played in the Texas Open last September.
