Aloha from the 2015 Wyndham Championship

Davis Love III wins Wyndham Championship

Davis Love III, -17, won the Wyndham Championship for the third time (1992, 2006 & 2015) after firing a final round 64, the second-lowest round of the day and his best closing round in Greensboro since a 62 in 1992. Love (-17, 263, 64-66-69-64) played the front nine at -4 with a lot of action. His first seven holes were bogey, birdie, birdie, eagle, birdie, bogey to make the turn at -15 overall. On the back, he made a 12’ 2” putt for eagle on #15 to go in as the clubhouse leader. Love became the second three-time winner of the Wyndham Championship, joining 8-time champion Sam Snead. He became the second player over 50 to win the Wyndham Championship, joining Snead, who accomplished the feat 50 years ago. At 51 years, four months, Love becomes the third oldest PGA TOUR winner, behind Snead (52 years, 10 months, 1965 Greater Greensboro Open) and Art Wall (51 years, 7 months, 1975 Greater Milwaukee Open).

Wyndham Championship and Uber Joining Forces

The Wyndham Championship and Uber are joining forces to offer golf fans access to an on-demand, safe transportation option throughout the 2015 Wyndham Championship. Attendees can use the Uber app to request a ride to drop them off right at the tournament entrance. Uber will have its own drop-off and pick-up location in close proximity to the tournament’s main entrance. Uber/Wyndham Championship signage will make it clear fans are in the correct location and there will also be more information in the Uber app. First time Uber riders can download the app from the App Store and use the promo code WCGOLF15 for a free first ride, up to $20 in value. Users can also sign up at https://get.uber.com/go/WCGOLF15. “The safety of all Wyndham Championship spectators is always our top priority,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “Golf fans from throughout the Carolinas and Virginia can see many of the best golfers in the world this weekend, and we want to do our part to make sure everyone gets home safely following a fun escape to the Wyndham by providing access to safe, reliable rides on-demand using the Uber app.” A portion of proceeds from rides to and from the Wyndham Championship will benefit the tournament’s official charity. Users can request their ride by selecting the “GOLF” option in the Uber app. For each GOLF ride taken, $1 will be donated to Birdies For Backpacks, which funds 501(c)(3) charitable organizations to fill backpacks with nutritionally sound meals for low income, Piedmont Triad-area children to take home on weekend
