Theother event is the Arnold Palmer Invitational, which was known as the Bay HillInvitational until 2007.
Nelson has had his name attached to this tournamentsince 1968.
This will be the seventh staging since Nelson passed away at theage of 94 in September of 2006.This week, Dufner will try to become the first player since Tom Watson in1978-80 to successfully defend his title.

International playershave had great success the past several years, winning six times in the last11 seasons.Last year, Dufner poured in a 25-foot birdie putt on the final hole to win bya single stroke over Dicky Pride.
Dufner fired four rounds in the 60s tofinish at 11-under-par 269.
The win was his second in four weeks on the PGATour.In 2011, Bradley parred the first playoff hole to defeat Ryan Palmer and earnhis first PGA Tour title.
He became the first rookie to win this tournament.Bradley shot rounds of 66-71-72-68 to get in at 3-under-par 277.
Palmer rolledin a six-foot birdie putt on the final hole of regulation to force theplayoff.
Palmer's birdie on the 18th at the TPC-Four Seasons Resort was one ofjust two on that hole in the final round.
Bradley would go on to win the PGAChampionship in 2011 in his first appearance in a major and was named the 2011PGA Tour Rookie of the Year.Bradley's 3-under-par total in 2011 was the highest winning score in relationto par since Bruce Lietzke's 1-over-par total in 1981.
It was the highest in anon-major since David Duval's 3-under winning score at the 1999 PlayersChampionship.In 2010, Day got up and down for bogey on the 18th hole after hitting his ballin the water, and that was good enough to give him the win by two shots overBrian Gay, Blake Adams and Jeff Overton.
Day fired rounds of 66-65-67-72 andended at 10-under-par 270 to earn his first victory on the PGA Tour.Rory Sabbatini grabbed the lead for good with a birdie on the 11th hole in thefinal round, but needed four more birdies to secure his 2009 win.
Sabbatiniclosed with a 6-under 64 to finish with a 72-hole scoring record of 19-under-par 261.
He bested the old mark of 262, which Loren Roberts and Steve Pate setin 1999.
The win was Sabbatini's fifth on the PGA Tour.
With the victory,Sabbatini became the 14th player win Nelson's and Ben Hogan's (Colonial)tournaments.
His final-round, 6-under 64 was the lowest final round by awinner at this event since Peter Thomson fired a 63 in 1956.In one of the most emotional victories on tour, Scott Verplank captured the2007 tournament, as he fashioned four sub-70 scores to clip Luke Donald by ashot.
The Dallas resident, who had strong ties to the late tournament host,overcame a 3-shot deficit during the final day to claim his fifth career win.The victory came in his 21st appearance at the tournament, the most starts bya winner claiming his first Byron Nelson Championship.Verplank became the sixth player over the age of 40 to win here, joining Snead(1957-58), Roberto de Vicenzo (1966), John Cook (1998), Roberts (1999) andSingh (2003).Woods missed the cut at the 2005 event.
