Nelson Notebook: What Can Brown Do for You?

I was reminded of the UPS slogan — What Can Brown Do for You? — when I clicked on the EDS Byron Nelson Championship this afternoon. I quickly realized the Tour pros aren’t playing on greens this week. Browns is more like it. OK, I might be exaggerating — but not much.

I had read the course was in poor condition but wasn’t prepared for the large patches of ugly brown on many of the greens. The commentators actually mentioned how players were attempting to fly their chips and pitches to miss the brown spots. Crazy.

Luke Donald leads going into the final round.
