The PGA Tour heads to Greensboro, North Carolina August 16-19, 2018 for the Wyndham Championship. The tournament dates back to 1938 and has had multiple names along the way. It started as the Greater Greensboro Open, than the KMart Open from 1988-95. Chrysler took over as title sponsor in 1996-2006 and the current sponsor, Wyndham started their sponsorship in 2007 and have been growing strong ever since.
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. The old school layout features small greens and wide fairways and ranks as the easiest par-70 on the PGA Tour.
Last year Henrik Stenson held off rookie Ollie Schniederjans to win by one-shot. It was a shootout with 22-under par the winning score. It was the Swedes sixth career win on the PGA Tour.
The list of past champions is impressive with Sam Snead at the top with eight wins. Snead won his last in 1965 at the age of 53. Other past champions include Byron Nelson, Gary Player, Seve Ballesteros, Raymond Floyd, Sergio Garcia and Patrick Reed.

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.
