The Wyndham Championship has once again come and gone. The young South Korean Si Woo Kim brought home his first ever PGA Tour trophy. His twenty-one under tied the event low set by Carl Pettersson eight years ago. The Wyndham Championship is a great home to many first time winners on tour. Six out of the last ten years the Wyndham Championship has been won by a first time PGA Tour win. With the FedEx Cup playoffs around the corner everyone was looking to be in the hunt during the exciting week of golf in Greensboro.
The players were not the only ones on the hunt. Many of our PJGD juniors were able to make it to Sedgefield Country Club to get to watch the best in the game tee it up. They were able to watch their favorites and some lucky juniors were even able to meet and take pictures with the golfing stars. It was exciting to watch all the pictures on social media of the kids with players and around the course throughout the week. Mr. 58, Jim Furyk, was kind enough to pose with Anna Hillman. Harrison Hilliard and Andrew Haarlow were able to get a quick moment with Patrick reed. The most exciting player to meet for many of the kids had to have been Ricky Fowler. Macie Burcham was able to steal a quick pic with Ricky after the round on Sunday. The smiles and excitement about being able to meet the best in their sport was a great way to both end their summers as well as given new excitement and motivation for our juniors.
