PGA Golf Playing Field for the 2017 Wyndham Championship

The 2017 Wyndham Championship golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from August 17-20, 2017, at the Sedgefield Country Club located in Greensboro, North Carolina. Here is a list of the playing field of top PGA golfers for the 2017 Wyndham Championship. 

The Wyndham Championship dates back to 1938. Sam Snead easily holds the record for most wins with eight followed by Davis Love III in second place with three wins. 

Tiger Woods has never won this event but he did play here in 2015 trying to get into the FedEx Cup Playoffs. He finished tied for 10th and missed the playoffs which start one week after this event. The Wyndham offers players a last chance to get into the very lucrative FedEx Cup Playoffs.
