GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Wyndham Championship strives for a grade of A++ in every area of tournament operations never resting on its laurels. After being named last year’s “Most Fan-Friendly” PGA TOUR event, tournament leadership promptly looked for ways to improve the fan experience. The latest result of that effort is the #WyndhamChamp Social Gallery, the tournament announced today. The 77th annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug. 15-21, 2016 at Sedgefield Country Club.
Last month, the Wyndham Championship introduced Midtown Mashup at the 10th green and the Sunbrella® Sun Deck at a huge new fan complex to the player’s right of the ninth green featuring a large concessions tent and outdoor seating. On the opposite end of the Sunbrella Sun Deck is another large tent featuring the new #WyndhamChamp Social Gallery, a place for fans to get social with the Wyndham Championship through the tournament’s social media channels.
The #WyndhamChamp Social Gallery includes free phone-charging stations, GIF-making stations, a live social and interactive photo mosaic, special guest appearances and a cool place to follow the Wyndham through social media. The #WyndhamChamp Social Gallery features a huge video wall where fans can follow tournament action through social media; television broadcasts on Golf Channel and CBS Sports will also be available.
Wyndham Championship fans that are active in social media can be rewarded by seeing their tweets on the large screen at the 18th green, having their shared photos included in the live social and interactive photo mosaic or winning prizes from title sponsor Wyndham Worldwide. At the “Most Fan Friendly” tournament on TOUR, Wyndham Championship fans can enjoy all of these amenities at no additional charge.
The #WyndhamChamp Social Gallery joins Midtown Mashup, the Sunbrella Sun Deck, the BB&T Fan Pavilion, two Tito’s Vodka Lounges and Margaritaville at the Wyndham as fan amenities open to all patrons at no additional charge.
