Description
The Golf Channel takes you on a journey through the life of one of golf's greatest competitors - Byron Nelson. His competitive legacy continues to awe the golf world with 11 straight tour wins, 18 in one year, and a record low scoring average of 68.33. Records which may never be broken.

Narrated by James Garner, the documentary traces Byron's life from his early beginnings on a Texas cotton farm, to his remarkable 1945 season and through his most recent years as a rancher and broadcaster.

This is his story recalled by him and those who admire golf's most beloved gentleman competitor.

"His streak of 11 in a row will never be matched by anybody in the game of golf." - Tom Watson.

"He was probably one of the nicest and finest people that I had the opportunity to meet in my early days." - Arnold Palmer.

"He's probably very simply and plainly one of the kindest men that's walked this planet." - Ben Crenshaw.
