The PGA Tour Wyndham Championship is the golf tournament traditionally known as the Greater Greensboro Open or Chrysler Classic of Greensboro. It has been played in Greensboro, N.C., for its entire history. In 2007, the name changed to Wyndham Championship, and the tournament serves as the last "regular season" event of the FedEx Cup points chase.

Kim's 60 in the second round broke the event's 18-hole record, and his 259 total tied Carl Pettersen's 72-hole mark set in 2008. In a way, Kim shot his age: He finished 21-under at age 21.

    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 is 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 golfers won won it two times each: Davis Love III, 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.
