GREENSBORO, N.C. â€“ The Wyndham Championship is taking another step in the regionalization of the tournament by partnering with Piedmont Triad Chambers of Commerce to sell ticket packages throughout the region, it was announced today.
Twenty-two area chambers of commerce will sell ticket packages to their membership for the PGA TOUR event set for its return to Sedgefield Country Club Aug. 11-17. The Wyndham Championship will then contribute a percentage of the proceeds back to the Chambers of Commerce that sold the packages.
â€œOur Piedmont Triad Chambers of Commerce do a great deal to promote our region,â€ Tournament Director Mark Brazil said. â€œAs they promote our region, they support the Wyndham Championship in the process, and we appreciate what they do. Through this innovative program, we are able to return their support by providing additional funds for their efforts.â€
â€œThis new chamber package for tickets to the Wyndham Championship is truly a win-win,â€ Tom Dayvault, President and CEO of the High Point Chamber of Commerce said. â€œThe Wyndham has new business leaders from throughout the Triad embracing this historic PGA TOUR event, and this partnership gives the various chambers an additional discounted opportunity to provide to their membership. Moving the tournament back to Sedgefield insures our PGA TOUR event will remain the top professional sporting event in the Triad.â€
