    PGA Tour Wyndham Championship Trivia and Notes:

    • The PGA Tour Wyndham Championship was first played - as the Greater Greensboro Open - in 1939. Sam Snead was the first winner.
    • It's appropriate that Snead won the first tournament, because he later won seven more times (1946, 1949-50, 1955-56, 1960, 1965). His eight wins total in this tournament shares the PGA Tour record for most wins in one event. Snead also finished second three times.
    • Snead's final win here, in 1965, was also the 82nd and final win of his PGA Tour career.
    • The only other golfer to win more than twice is Davis Love III, whose victories were in 1992, 2006 and 2015. Love was 51 years, 4 months old in 2015, at the time the third-oldest winner in PGA Tour history.
    • No other golfer has won the Wyndham Championship more than twice. But seven other golfers won won it two times each: Brandt Snedeker, Sandy Lyle, Danny Edwards, George Archer, Billy Casper, Doug Sanders and Byron Nelson.
    • Seve Ballesteros' first PGA Tour win was at the 1978 Greater Greensboro Open.
    • When Arjun Atwal won the 2010 tourney, he became the first golfer from India to win on the US PGA Tour. He also was just the second-ever Monday qualifier to win on the PGA Tour in the all-exempt era.
    • Si Woo Kim, age 21, recorded his first PGA Tour win at the 2016 tournament. His victory included a new tournament record of 60 for 18 holes (set in the second round), and he tied the event's 72-hole record of 259.
