After all the action at TPC Harding Park, the season will continue on with the 2020 Wyndham Championship, where J.T. Poston will look to defend the title he won in Greensboro last year. For that win, Poston cashed in a check worth $1.152 million. Poston is also now in position to become the newest member of the Wyndham Championship multi-win club. Speaking of which, Brandt Snedeker is a two-time winner in this event, topping the field in 2007 and 2018. Sam Snead holds the record for most wins in this tournament with eight, while Davis Love III has three.
The Wyndham Championship traces its roots all the way back to 1938 when it was still known as the Greater Greensboro Open. It changed its name to KMART Greater Greensboro Open in 1988 then to Greater Greensboro Chrysler Classic in 1996. In 2003, the tournament carried the name Chrysler Classic of Greensboro before becoming the Wyndham Championship in 2007. Fast forward to 2020 and we find ourselves in another history making date for this event (albeit for less than stellar reasons) but at least the prize money makes it worthwhile for contending golfers. Here’s is the breakdown of the total purse for this year’s Wyndham.

There’s no change in the total amount of the purse this year at Wyndham Championship from last year, as it is still at $6.4 million. When Snead won the Greater Greensboro Open in 1938, the tournament’s inaugural run, he took home $1,200 of the $5,000 purse. It was only in 2016, when the winner’s prize hit the $1 million mark, with Kim Si-woo pocketing $1.008 million.
