Peggy Nelson lived most of her life in Ohio, then moved to Texas in 1986 to marry world- renowned professional golfer Byron Nelson. A writer by profession, Peggy worked for twelve years in advertising circles in Dayton, Ohio. After moving to Texas she authored the history of Scottish Rite Hospital for Crippled Children in Dallas. And in 1992 she assisted Byron in the writing of his autobiography, How I Played the Game. Peggy continues to live at and helps manage Byron Nelson’s Fairway Ranch in Roanoke, Texas, plays golf occasionally, does a little flower gardening, tends her small flock of chickens, plays piano, attends Bible classes, volunteers at the new Byron Nelson High School, and serves as a greeter at her church. She is also a busy volunteer at the HP Byron Nelson Championship in Dallas each year. Peggy delights in her many friends, in visits to and from her sons and their families, and in the thousands of happy memories she has of her life with her beloved Byron.
