GREENSBORO, N.C. - In an effort to make it possible for everyone to attend the Wyndham Championship and experience a PGA TOUR event, the Piedmont Triad's PGA TOUR event will offer free admission before noon for the first three days of tournament week, it was announced today. The 73rd annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug. 13-19, 2012.
For the first three days of tournament week, Monday's Kevin Harvick Foundation Pro-Am presented by Technology Concepts & Design, Tuesday's PGA TOUR practice rounds and Wednesday's New Breed Logistics Pro-Am, admission will be free of charge until Noon for the first 5,000 fans that arrive at Sedgefield Country Club each day. After Noon each day or after the first 5,000 people arrive, whichever comes first, $15 regular-priced tickets will be required for entry. And as always, children under the age of 15 are admitted free of charge with a paying adult. Regular ticket prices return for official tournament play Thursday through Sunday.
"We are happy to invite the Piedmont Triad to join us at the Wyndham Championship," tournament director Mark Brazil said. "A lot of Piedmont Triad people are still struggling to make ends meet so we are inviting everyone to come to the tournament as our guests so that people have the opportunity to experience this great Piedmont Triad tradition and see some of the world's best golfers. We appreciate the support our event enjoys throughout the region, and this is one way we can say 'thank you.'"
