GREENSBORO, N.C. – Two-time Major winner Justin Thomas will play the 2023 Wyndham Championship, the tournament announced today. The 84th annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug. 2-6, 2023 at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C.

Thomas won the PGA Championship in 2017 and again last season. He is a 15-time PGA TOUR winner who is currently 75th in FedExCup points and 24th in the Official World Golf Rankings. A former No. 1 player in the world, Thomas represented the United States in the Ryder Cup twice, and the Presidents Cup three times including the 2022 event in Charlotte. He is making his fourth Wyndham Championship start and his first since 2016.

The University of Alabama alumnus is no stranger to Sedgefield Country Club; he won the 2009 AJGA Wyndham Invitational presented by Odyssey and claimed an exemption into the Wyndham Championship as its AJGA champion. From 2008 through 2012, the winner of the AJGA tournament received an exemption into that year’s Wyndham Championship. Thomas was just 16 years old when he made his PGA TOUR debut that year; he fired an opening 65 followed by a two-over-par 72 to become the third- youngest player to make the 36-hole cut in PGA TOUR history. However, he did not make the cut after the third round and officially finished tied for 78th.

“We are always ecstatic when Justin plays the Wyndham Championship,” executive director Mark Brazil said. “Justin is one of the biggest stars on the PGA TOUR, and he’s a player every tournament wants in their field. With his extensive history at Sedgefield Country Club, I would not be at all surprised to see him hoist the Sam Snead Cup Sunday evening.”
