Wyndham Championship Introduces Ralph Lauren Merchandise Pavilion

GREENSBORO, N.C. – As the winner of the PGA TOUR’s “Most Fan-Friendly Event” following each of the last two seasons, the Wyndham Championship is continually searching for ways to enhance its fan experience. This year, the tournament takes yet another step in that direction by moving the Ralph Lauren Merchandise Pavilion to the main entrance, the tournament announced today.  The 78th annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug. 14-20, 2017 at Sedgefield Country Club.

The Ralph Lauren Merchandise Pavilion, formerly located in the Sedgefield clubhouse, will now be housed in a large tent at the tournament’s new main entrance near the intersection of Wayne Road and East Sedgefield Drive where all parking shuttles will now unload.  The merchandise pavilion will be located on the walkway from the shuttles into the tournament making shopping far more convenient for Piedmont Triad golf fans – especially those visiting the Ralph Lauren Merchandise Pavilion when leaving for the day.  Those visiting the merchandise pavilion on the way in will have the option of “checking” their purchase for pickup on the way home.

The Ralph Lauren Merchandise Pavilion will feature apparel from Polo Golf and Adidas including items such as golf shirts, outer wear, hats, visors and t-shirts. The pavilion will also carry unique Wyndham Championship souvenirs such as umbrellas, pin flags, tumblers, shoe bags, ball markers and much more.

In addition to the merchandise pavilion at the main entrance, all tournament patrons will also have access to tournament merchandise at a satellite location in the Sedgefield Country Club pro shop. This location will offer a small selection of the tournament merchandise available at the primary merchandise pavilion.
