WYNDHAM CHAMPIONSHIP ANNOUNCES 34,000-FAN SELLOUT CROWD FOR THIRD ROUND
GREENSBORO, N.C. – An estimated crowd of 34,000 fans watched today’s third round of the 76th annual Wyndham Championship, the tournament announced today. The Wyndham Championship concludes tomorrow. –
After we saw about 30,000 people on the course yesterday, we thought we could allow quite a few more today,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “With huge interest in attending the tournament, we thought 34,000 people could comfortably watch the tournament so we settled on that number. Sedgefield Country Club looked incredible – they weren’t just following Tiger’s group, they were all over the golf course. They came early and stayed late. It was a historic day at the Wyndham Championship.”
