AT&T Byron Nelson golf tournament officials announced Aug. 18 that an economic impact study showed the yearly event resulted in $28.8 million in direct economic impact, according to a news release. McKinney was bolstered by $17.9 million of that total being used in direct spending.

The sold-out event held May 10 supported more than 270 jobs and generated $55.4 million in total economic impact to North Texas, the release stated.

“The impact of the AT&T Byron Nelson—in community and economic impact—shows that this tournament is much more than a game,” Tournament Director Jon Drago said in the release.

This is the second year in a row for the AT&T Byron Nelson to be held at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney. It was also the first time since 2008 that the event has sold out, a news release stated.

Tournament officials also announced the event also raised $7.6 million for Momentous Institute, the longstanding beneficiary of the tournament that exists to provide social and emotional health support for children and their family members. The total set a new record for the tournament and brought the total raised for the organization in all 54 years of the event’s history to $180 million.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the success of our second tournament in McKinney,” said Clay Duvall, the 2022 AT&T Byron Nelson Tournament chair, in the release.

The 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson will be held May 8-14 at TPC Craig Ranch, marking the third year the tournament will reside in McKinney.
