Career Highlights
Auto-nicknamed “The Tourniquet”, but actually nicknamed “Fireball”, Nelson missed a victory by 2 stokes in ROMP 2002. He attributed this mainly to his lack of putting in the early rounds, which would have given him a commanding victory. His long driving ability and crisp iron play remains intact and as he plays host to ROMP 2003, he will have the distinct advantage of playing in the tough wind conditions and scouting the courses beforehand. He is considered the favorite for the tournament and should have a solid comeback.
