AT&T Tour Caddie Championship at Trinity Forest

AT&T Caddie Championship at Trinity Forest Golf Club

Dallas, TX – May 15, 2017

As the PGA Tour stops at the Four Seasons Resort in Las Colinas for The AT&T Byron Nelson this week, many of the caddies on the PGA Tour have their own games to work on. AT&T has partnered with the APTC to host the first official Tour Caddie Championship to be held at the future home of the AT&T Byron Nelson, Trinity Forest Golf Club on Monday, May 22nd.

The event will showcase 68 of the best golfers inside the tour caddie profession in a stroke play format. Notable participants in the AT&T Caddie Championship will include James Edmondson (4x Club Champion at Colonial Country Club and caddie for Ryan Palmer), Kip Henley (previous mini-tour player, winner of Golf Channel’s “Big Break”, and caddie for Vijay Singh), Julien Trudeau (former Web.com Tour Pro and caddie for Graham Delaet), Paul Tesori (caddie for Webb Simpson) and Michael Greller (caddie for Jordan Spieth).

Beginning in 2018, the AT&T Bryon Nelson will relocate from its three decades old venue at the Four Seasons Resort and Club at Las Colinas in Irving to Trinity Forest Golf Club. The club, located five miles southeast of downtown Dallas, was specifically built to host the PGA Tour and Southern Methodist University’s golf team.

Built on a former landfill, and designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, Trinity Forest will challenge the caddies with an unorthodox links style course in the middle of Texas. Crenshaw and Coore were both immediately struck by the property and its natural characteristics. According to Coore, “the property that we began with, the biggest attraction was that rumpled, uneven ground… It looked like ground that needed to be ironed — uneven, broken ground that anyone in our profession associates with the most classic courses in the world. Using the uneven ground, the greens look like parts of the fairways; the grass just swells up out of the ground. There is almost no rough.”
