2012 CHAMPION SERGIO GARCIA JOINS WYNDHAM CHAMPIONSHIP FIELD

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The 2017 Masters Champion, Sergio Garcia, joined the Wyndham Championship field late Friday afternoon, the tournament announced today. The 81st annual Wyndham Championship, which will determine the outcome of the $10 Million Wyndham Rewards Top 10, starts Thursday at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C.

Garcia’s Masters Tournament win and his 2012 Wyndham Championship title are two of his 10 PGA TOUR victories. The Spanish golfer also has 20 International wins to his credit. He is a prolific Ryder Cup competitor having played for the European team nine times.

Golfers can still join the Wyndham Championship field until 30 minutes after the PGA Championship second round is complete tonight, and non-PGA TOUR members finishing in the top 10 Sunday night can join after the PGA Championship. Because the field can still change a great deal, it will be released at some point over the weekend or perhaps even Monday morning. Some current-field highlights are below:
