Wyndham Championship Offers Free Admission Before Noon on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of Tournament Week

GREENSBORO, N.C. – In an effort to make it possible for everyone to attend the Wyndham Championship and experience a PGA TOUR event, the Piedmont Triad’s PGA TOUR event will offer free admission before noon for the first three days of tournament week, it was announced today.  The 73rd annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug. 13-19, 2012.

For the first three days of tournament week, Monday’s Kevin Harvick Foundation Pro-Am presented by Technology Concepts & Design, Tuesday’s PGA TOUR practice rounds and Wednesday’s New Breed Logistics Pro-Am, admission will be free of charge until Noon for the first 5,000 fans that arrive at Sedgefield Country Club each day.  After Noon each day or after the first 5,000 people arrive, whichever comes first, $15 regular-priced tickets will be required for entry. And as always, children under the age of 15 are admitted free of charge with a paying adult. Regular ticket prices return for official tournament play Thursday through Sunday.

“We are happy to invite the Piedmont Triad to join us at the Wyndham Championship,” tournament director Mark Brazil said.  “A lot of Piedmont Triad people are still struggling to make ends meet so we are inviting everyone to come to the tournament as our guests so that people have the opportunity to experience this great Piedmont Triad tradition and see some of the world’s best golfers.  We appreciate the support our event enjoys throughout the region, and this is one way we can say ‘thank you.’”

Contested annually on the Donald Ross-designed course at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., the Wyndham Championship was founded in 1938 and is the seventh-oldest event on the PGA TOUR.  Buy one – get one free tickets are available at Piedmont Triad-area Harris Teeter locations and, at wyndhamchampionship.com or through the tournament office.  The tournament thanks title sponsor Wyndham Worldwide, presenting sponsor BB&T and Premier Partners, Cadillac, Harris Teeter, McConnell Golf, Sunbrella®, Technology Concepts & Design, Inc. and VF Corporation for their continued support.  Additional tournament information, including ticket packages and sponsorship information, is available at wyndhamchampionship.com or through the tournament office at (336) 379-1570.  For more information about Wyndham Worldwide, please visit www.wyndhamworldwide.com.
