GREENSBORO, N.C. – For the fourth consecutive year, the final round of the Wyndham Championship is a sellout, it was announced this afternoon. Today’s final-round sellout is in addition to yesterday’s third-round sellout. The last time both weekend days were sold out was 2008, the year the tournament moved back to Sedgefield Country Club.
Advance ticket sales surged last week as the Wyndham field came into focus, and at that time, an additional 4,000 tickets were printed for today’s round bringing the total number of available tickets to approximately 29,000. That number includes tickets for all on-course hospitality venues and grounds tickets.
“This was easily the biggest weekend at the Wyndham in the last 10 years,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “I’ve been told by players and community leaders alike that this weekend was the biggest this tournament has seen in a very long time. The leader board, the crowds and the golf were off the charts. Bobby Long has set the bar for this tournament at A + +. What you saw today was A ++.”
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. Tickets are available at wyndhamchampionship.com, at Piedmont Triad Harris Teeter locations or through the tournament office.
