GREENSBORO, N.C. — All available tickets for the third round of the 73rd annual Wyndham Championship have been sold, organizers said Saturday afternoon.
This sellout reportedly marks the second consecutive year that the third round has sold out. The final round sold out in 2008, ’09, ’10 and ‘11.
Officials said advance ticket sales surged as the Wyndham field came into focus last year, and at that time, an additional 3,000 tickets were printed for the third and final rounds bringing the total number of available tickets to 28,000 each day.
Organizers said the number includes tickets for all on-course hospitality venues and grounds tickets. Officials said the same number of tickets was ordered this year so Saturday’s sellout crowd numbers 28,000 tickets sold. Limited tickets are available for tomorrow’s final round.
The Wyndham Championship was founded in 1938 and is the seventh-oldest event on the PGA TOUR. It is contested annually on the Donald Ross-designed course at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro.
