The following is a list of the prize money up for grabs for professional golfers on the PGA Tour at the 2014 HP Byron Nelson Championship, which is being played from May 15th to May 18, 2014, at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas in Irving, Texas.

The Byron Nelson Championship is one of the older tournaments on the PGA Tour, having been first played in 1944. Fittingly, the first player to win this tournament was Byron Nelson.
Tom Watson holds the record for most wins in the Byron Nelson Championship with four (1975, 1978, 1979, 1980). Sam Snead won this tournament three times (1945, 1957, 1958), while Jack Nicklaus (1970, 1971), and Bruce Lietzke (1981, 1988) are the only other multiple winners.
Rory McIlroy has yet to win this tournament, and he won't win it in 2014 as he is not playing here this week. Phil Mickelson is also not here, and Tiger Woods is still recovering from back surgery.
