Sedgefield Country Club has a decorated history hosting one of the PGA TOUR's longest running events: the Wyndham Championship. Established in 1938 as the Greater Greensboro Open, Sedgefield Country Club played host to this premier event for over four decades. Past champions during this era included the likes of Sam Snead, Byron Nelson and Ben Hogan, to name a few.
In 2008, the event returned to Sedgefield and its strategic Donald Ross design. The 2008 Champion was Carl Pettersson, who set the record for the lowest round in Wyndham Championship history when he fired a nine-under 61 in the second round. In 2009, Ryan Moore captured his first PGA TOUR victory as he fended off Sergio Garcia and ultimately beat Kevin Stadler and Jason Bohn in a playoff to capture the victory. The 2010 Champion, Arjun Atwal, became the first Monday qualifier to win on the PGA tour in 24 years. Atwal led or shared the lead in each of the first three rounds and shot 67 in the final round to win by one stroke. The 2011 Champion, Webb Simpson, who is a Wake Forest University alumnus, claimed his first PGA Tour title, shooting a final round of 67 to win by three strokes. Webb would go on to play well in the FedEx Cup playoffs.
