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 sixth-oldest event on the PGA TOUR excluding the Majors. The tournament enjoys a rich 77-year history that includes such former winners as Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan, Gary Player and Seve Ballesteros. In fact, 17 former winners are members of the World Golf Hall of Fame. The Wyndham Championship is the only regular season PGA TOUR event contested on a course originally designed by Donald Ross. The 2017 tournament, set for August 14-20, will mark the 78th edition of North Carolina’s oldest professional golf event.

The Wyndham Championship is a regular golf tournament on the PGA Tour. It is played annually in Greensboro, North Carolina, U.S., and was originally called the Greater Greensboro Open. In 2007, the event was renamed the Wyndham Championship when Wyndham Hotels & Resorts took over from DaimlerChrysler as title sponsor. It moved from an autumn date to mid-August and is the last PGA Tour event before the FedEx Cup Playoffs, giving golfers one last chance to qualify for the FedEx Cup.

The tournament was founded in 1938 as the Greater Greensboro Open. It was usually played in April or May, until a schedule change in 2003 moved it toward the end of the season. Sam Snead set a PGA Tour record for his eight wins at the event, as well as for his win in 1965, which made him the oldest player to win a PGA Tour event. Both records still stand. Davis Love III, the 2015 champion, is the oldest player to win a PGA Tour event in the Champions Tour era (since 1980), when golfers over 50 began participating in their own separate tour.

Charlie Sifford competed in the 1961 tournament, the first time an African American golfer was permitted to play in a PGA-sponsored event in the South.

The purse for 2016 was $5.6 million; the winner's share was $1,008,000.
