GREENSBORO, N.C. – New Breed Logistics, a privately-held, third-party logistics services provider, is the new title sponsor of the Wyndham Championship Wednesday Pro-Am, it was announced today.
“New Breed has been a strong Wyndham Championship supporter for many years,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “We are thrilled about their increased sponsorship role in branding the New Breed Logistics Pro-Am. In the last three years, we’ve had some great success in regionalizing our event, and having New Breed, headquartered here in the Piedmont Triad, as our Wednesday pro-am title sponsor is another major step forward in our regionalism effort.”

The Company manages millions of square feet of warehouse space across more than 50 distribution centers in the U.S. and employs more than 6,000 people. Services range from distribution center operations and transportation management to highly sophisticated and technology-focused solutions involving product repair, returns processing, vendor managed inventory, materials management, manufacturing support and supply-chain consulting.
“New Breed is proud to continue its support of the Wyndham Championship” said Louis DeJoy, CEO of New Breed Logistics. “It is important for the prosperity of the Triad that businesses engage in and sponsor events that contribute to the recognition and development of our community.”

The New Breed Logistics Pro-Am will be contested on Wednesday, August 19, 2009 at Sedgefield Country Club the day before official Wyndham Championship tournament play begins. The pro-am provides contestants an opportunity to enjoy the PGA TOUR player experience, if only for one day. Three amateurs are paired with one PGA TOUR professional, and the group plays a “shamble” with each player hitting a tee shot. The team goes to the location of the best tee shot, including that of the pro, and each player plays his or her own ball from that location. Each player records a score for every hole.
The 70th Wyndham Championship is set for Aug. 17-23, 2009 at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. Tickets are available at wyndhamchampionship.com or through the tournament office. The tournament thanks title sponsor Wyndham Worldwide and premier partners, BB&T, Harris Teeter and VF Corporation for their continued support. Additional tournament information is available at wyndhamchampionship.com or through the tournament office at (336) 379-1570.
