The Wyndham Championship is the last tournament on the regular season PGA Tour schedule and players will be jockeying to get into the top 125 in order to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs, This year the tournament gets underway August 17-20, 2017.
Formerly the Greater Greensboro Open and KMart Greensboro Open, the Wyndham Championship is one of the oldest events on the PGA Tour. Sam Snead won the inaugural Open in 1938 and would go on to win it a record eight times.
VENUE: Sedgefield Country Club measures 7,130 yards and plays to a par 70. It’s one of the shortest courses on the PGA Tour and every year the winner approaches 20-under par. Bottom line is if you don’t make a ton of birdies, you don’t have a chance. Sedgefield has been the host track since 2008 but did host the event 22 previous times. The old school layout features small greens and wide fairways and ranks as the easiest par-70 on the PGA Tour.
Last Year: South Korean Si Woo Kim cruised to a five stroke victory. The 21-year old posted a record total of 259 - 21-under par, that included a 60 in the second round.
Past champions include Sam Snead, Julius Boros, Gary Player, Raymond Floyd, Seve Ballesteros, Mark O’Meara, Sergio Garcia and Davis Love III who won it three times.
The major tournaments are in the books and now we head closer to the FedEx Cup Playoffs with this week’s Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina. It’s the last chance players have to move into the top 125 and secure their spot to the playoffs.
The bubble players are Daniel Summerhays, Geoff Ogilvy and Cameron Tringale who all sit at No. 124 - 126. It’s not easy to gain ground. Over the years, only three men have come to Greensboro at 140th or lower in the FedExCup standings and left with a playoff berth. Continue...

Sedgefield ranked the easiest par-70 course on tour last year. In 2007, the name changed to Wyndham Championship. The PGA Tour Wyndham Championship was originally know as the Greater Greensboro Open or Chrysler Classic of Greensboro. It is one of the longest-standing events in PGA TOUR history.
Since 1938, the Wyndham Championship has been a staple of the PGA calendar, with legends like Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Gary Player and Raymond Floyd among its champions.
Prior to 2003, this tournament was usually contested in April or May until a schedule change in moved the event toward the end of the season. Sam Snead holds PGA Tour record for his eight wins at the event (1938, 1946, 1949-50, 1955-56, 1960, 1965), which is the most ever by any golfer, for any tournament. His 1965 Greater Greensboro Open win also made him the oldest player to win a PGA Tour event, also a record which still stands.
In the 2009 Tournament, Ryan Moore ran off a string of five straight back-nine birdies to force his way into a three-way playoff, then won that playoff with a birdie on the third extra hole. It was his first PGA Tour victory. Kevin Stadler and Jason Bohn finished 72 holes tied with Moore.
Si Woo Kim had a productive week at the Wyndham Championship. He claimed one tournament record, a share of another — and, most importantly, his first PGA Tour trophy.
The 21-year-old South Korean player closed with a three-under 67 for a five-stroke victory. He had a 21-under 259 total at Sedgefield in Greensboro, N.C., tying the event 72-hole record set eight years ago by Carl Pettersson.
Kim matched Pettersson by sinking an uphill 14-foot birdie putt on the final hole, then said through an interpreter that he “never expected any course record.”
Kim set a tournament record with a 60 in the second round. He earned 500 FedEx Cup points and $1,008,000 in prize money in the regular-season finale.
