GREENSBORO, N.C. – Three Wyndham Championship Youth Golf Clinics, presented
by SunbrellaR, are set for Monday and Tuesday of next week, it was announced
today. The 72nd annual Wyndham Championship presented by BB&T is set for
Aug, 15-21 at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C.

The first youth golf clinic is set for Monday, Aug. 15 at 11 a.m. at Winston
Lake Golf Course in Winston-Salem. PGA TOUR golfer Joe Bramlett will attend
this clinic. Bramlett played through three rounds of PGA TOUR qualifying
school last year to earn his PGA TOUR card. The PGA TOUR rookie and
California native is an alumnus of Stanford University.

Former University of Alabama golfer Bud Cauley will attend the clinic at
Burlington’s Alamance Country Club on Tuesday, Aug. 16 at 4 p.m. Cauley
made his professional golf debut in June at the U.S. Open two weeks after
finishing his college career. Cauley will play the Wyndham Championship on
a sponsor’s exemption.

The third clinic is set for Greensboro’s Gillespie Golf Course at 4 p.m. on
Tuesday, Aug. 16. Morgan Hoffmann will be the professional golfer at this
clinic. The Oklahoma State University golfer turned professional earlier
this year giving up a chance to play for the United States on the Walker Cup
team this year. He has made two cuts in three PGA TOUR starts this year.
Like Cauley, he will play the Wyndham Championship on a sponsor’s exemption.

All three clinics are open to the general public and are free of charge; in
addition, the first 100 kids at each clinic will receive a free Wyndham
Championship hat and t-shirt. Youth golfers ages 15 and under are welcome.
Later in the week when PGA TOUR competition begins, families can attend the
Wyndham Championship inexpensively with the tournament’s long-term policy of
admitting kids ages 15 and under free of charge when accompanied by a paying
adult.

“These clinics are a great opportunity for Piedmont Triad kids, and we thank
our friends at Sunbrella for helping us present them,” Wyndham tournament
director Mark Brazil said. “The kids attending these clinics will be able
to hear what it takes to become a professional golfer from guys who are
still very early in the journey. The players will talk about basic life
skills in addition to golf, and they’ll show the kids some shots and how to
hit them. Then they can come to Sedgefield and watch them in action.”
