GREENSBORO, N.C. – As PGA TOUR golfers compete for a spot in the prestigious Wyndham Rewards Top 10 during the Wyndham Championship, tournament attendees can Travel the World with Wyndham Rewards by checking into 10 activations around the golf course to earn exclusive rewards along the way. The 80th Wyndham Championship, which will determine the $10 Million Wyndham Rewards Top 10, is set for July 30-Aug. 4, 2019 at Sedgefield Country Club.
Wyndham Rewards features some 30,000 hotels, vacation club resorts and vacation rentals around the world. Wyndham Championship attendees will find 10 Wyndham Rewards destinations featured on the course, where they can earn a pin at each one. Fans are encouraged to share photos of their visits on Instagram and Twitter using @WyndhamChamp, @WyndhamRewards and #WyndhamRewardsTop10.
After collecting all 10 pins, fans can visit the Wyndham Rewards Top 10 Pavilion (home of the Key to Wyn), where the first 100 fans to collect all 10 pins each day (Thursday through Sunday) will earn a collectable Wyndham Rewards Top 10 pin as well as 3,000 Wyndham Rewards points, ticket upgrades, unlimited pedicab rides and Club Wyndham Beach access during the tournament.

“More than just championship golf, the Wyndham Championship is an escape from the everyday, transporting fans to destinations around the world where they can experience the best that Wyndham Rewards has to offer,” said Eliot Hamlisch, SVP of Global Loyalty and Leader of Wyndham Rewards. “This year we invite fans to adventure with us in the Big Apple, feel the white sands of Clearwater Beach, and experience the Mediterranean Sea at the Dolce by Wyndham Sitges in Barcelona, Spain, all while seeing some of the best golfers in the world compete for a spot in the Top 10.”
“Travel the World with Wyndham Rewards is a great addition to the Wyndham Championship fan experience,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “Just like they did with Key to Wyn, which is now the Wyndham Rewards Top 10 Pavilion, in 2010, Wyndham continues to find creative ways to activate their title partnership in ways that highlight what they do as one of the world’s largest hospitality companies. Travel the World with Wyndham Rewards shows 10 great properties around the world, gives our patrons a chance to win some pretty cool prizes and increases our social media engagement. Activation like that makes Wyndham Rewards the best title partner on TOUR.”
