In conjunction with the PGA TOUR, the Tournament has an inclement weather policy in place. There are three levels of weather conditions which will be indicated on scoreboards throughout the course:
1. Evacuation Watch – Conditions are very favorable for severe weather to form. If this alert is posted, only get involved in tasks that will allow you to get away quickly if we proceed to the next level.
2. Evacuation Warning – Conditions are degenerating and there is a high probability that play will be stopped.
3. Evacuation in Effect – The PGA TOUR has suspended play. Seek shelter immediately.
Should weather conditions cancel play for all or a major portion of a day, the final round may be on Monday, August 21, 2017. If this is the case, the Wyndham Championship will be seeking Volunteers to assist on Monday. Alternatively, the PGA TOUR may limit the tournament to 54 holes. You will be advised of the PGA TOUR’s decision.
