GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Since the Wyndham Championship started back in 1938 there has always been a charitable component to the event.

It is estimated that the tournament has given over $30 million to local charities.

The First Tee Program will again be on the receiving end this year as well as a new program called Birdies for Backpacks.

The goal is to put a dent in the childhood hunger problem in the state of North Carolina.
