Inclement Weather Policy for Spectators:

PGA TOUR Meteorologists will post a “Weather Warning” on the scoreboards located throughout the golf course should inclement weather approach. The “Weather Warning” sign will appear prior to inclement weather. When the sign appears, please take precautions immediately – even though it could be before play is suspended.

Should weather conditions cancel play for all or a major portion of a day, the tournament may play the final round on Monday, August 21, 2017. Should this occur, the Wyndham Championship will be seeking Volunteers to assist with operations on that day. Alternatively, the PGA TOUR may limit the tournament to 54 holes. Volunteers will be advised of the PGA TOUR’s decision in the event of this contingency.
