Jason Day is the leading ranked Aussie at the AT&T Byron Nelson, which is being played for the last time at the TPC Four Seasons in Irving.

Masters champion and now world number five Sergio Garcia is the defending champion and with Dustin Johnson (No 1)and Jordan Spieth (No 6) also teeing it up it is a high class field.

Meanwhile the Champions Tour plays its first major, the Regions Tradition, Greystone Golf & Country Club in Alabama.

Defending champion Bernhard Langer will be looking for his 8th senior major, recent debut winner John Daly his first, and newbie Steve Stricker is playing his first senior major after not cracking win in his first three starts, where he’s recorded an encouraging runner-up, T3 and T8 in his first three starts.

On the LPGA Australia’s Minjee Lee won the Kingsmill Championship in 2015 but will have to be at her best to overcome a field boasting defending champion Ariya Jutanugarn fellow world number one aspirant So Yeon Ryu, and a host of other top names.
