Byron Nelson attended his final HP Byron Nelson Championship in 2006, passing away that September.

Six years later, the event will try to bring the memory of Nelson front and center with its first ever Argyle Saturday on May 19.

The tournament is asking players to wear argyle clothing or accessories and the caddies will receive special argyle print towels for the day.

A fan giveaway will include argyle-banded fedoras, t-shirts and other accessories during Argyle Saturday.
