The PGA Tour is moving the AT&T Byron Nelson from Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas, Texas, after the 2020 tournament.

A mixture of unpredictable weather, a lack of shade, and sub-standard infrastructure has led to a dearth of A-list players and disappointing attendances in the past two years, which has affected tournament revenues and in turn donations to its charities.

“As the necessary footprint to grow the event continues to expand, collectively, we will be evaluating other facilities in the Dallas area for 2021 to ensure a premium fan experience and allow the [tournament host organization] Salesmanship Club to continue to do great things through its support of the [social emotional health charity] Momentous Institute,” Tyler Dennis, chief of operations at PGA Tour, told the Dallas Morning News.

The TPC Four Seasons Resort at Las Colinas could stage the event in the short term, with either of the two new championship courses at PGA of America’s new headquarters in Frisco a long-term possibility.

The third and final AT&T Byron Nelson at Trinity Forest will take place on May 7-10. AT&T’s sponsorship of the tournament runs through 2021.
