Before everyone moves on to the FedExCup playoffs and the next golf season, players will take part in the Wyndham Championship 2021. Right before the playoffs, it is one last chance for any golfer to save their season and make it to the top 125 heading to the playoffs. This year again, the championship is held at the Sedgefield Country Club – which has been the course for Wyndham since 2008 following its restoration for 10 months.

This year, we have stars like Russell Henry, Scott Piercy, and Webb Simpson on the field. The championship is often seen as a last attempt for many, especially to those who are a few points away from playing the FedEx Cup. This season one can focus on Rickie Fowler, Michael Thompson, and a few others.


Last year, Jim Herman had won the championship, scoring 21-under 259. Billy Horschel, Kevin Kisner, and Simpson followed.
