Like pin placements on each day of a tournament, the PGA Tour's AT&T Byron Nelson will be on the move in 2021.

The annual North Texas event will be played at Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas for the third and final time from May 7-10.

The tournament had been played at the TPC Four Seasons in Irving for 35 years, and potentially could return there in 2021. Other sites are reportedly being evaluated.

Bad weather contributed to poor attendance the last two years. Charitable revenues were also down from a peak of more than $6 million at the Four Seasons to less than half of that last year.

Three-time major champion Jordan Spieth, a Dallas native and a member of Trinity Forest, said he was disappointed with the decision to move the event.

"Trinity Forest is a spectacular golf course," Spieth said, per Golfweek. "I, as well as many of my fellow Tour players, enjoy playing Trinity Forest and we will miss having it on the schedule."

South Korea's Kang Sung-hoon won the Byron Nelson last year for his first PGA Tour title, finishing at 23-under-par and two strokes ahead of Matt Every and Scott Piercy.
