HP recently acquired EDS. And that means that the PGA Tour's Byron Nelson Championship has acquired a new title sponsor.
The 2009 HP Byron Nelson Championship will take place May 18-24 at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas in Irving. EDS had been the title sponsor since 2003, but that company's sale to HP closed on Aug. 26, and HP decided to continue the title sponsorship.
"The Byron Nelson Championship is about much more than golf; it is about giving back to the community and honoring the legacy of one of golf's greatest humanitarians, Byron Nelson," said Michael Mendenhall, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, HP. "HP is privileged to become the title sponsor of this great event on the PGA Tour."
