Byron's Medal

The day before the EDS Byron Nelson Championship teed off, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to award Byron Nelson the Congressional Gold Medal:

The medal is intended to honor the 94-year-old Nelson for his philanthropy, said Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Flower Mound, who sponsored the bill approved by a voice
vote Tuesday.

"Through his outstanding accomplishments as a golfer and a humanitarian, Byron Nelson has proved to be an exemplary citizen," Burgess said in a statement.

The bill now must be approved by the Senate.
