Back in the week preceding The Masters, there were a couple news stories that mentioned Ben Crenshaw's role as master of ceremonies for the Champions Dinner at Augusta. Crenshaw had been asked by Byron Nelson to take over those duties because Nelson was ill and couldn't travel.
None of the stories ever mentioned what Mr. Nelson's illness was, or whether it was serious. It's safe to say now that it wasn't serious, but all the same, I'll be very happy to see Mr. Nelson on the first tee tomorrow, greeting the players as they begin their rounds at the Byron Nelson Championship.
Phil Mickelson, however, is feeling a bit under the weather right now. Or more accurately, he's dog tired. So, unfortunately, Mickelson withdrew from the Nelson on Monday.
