Brandt Snedeker will play 2016 Wyndham Championship

2007 Wyndham winner Brandt Snedeker and Justin Thomas, will play the 2016 Wyndham Championship, the tournament announced today. The 77th annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug. 15-21, 2016 at Sedgefield Country Club. Snedeker, who won the Wyndham Championship in 2007 and was later named that year’s PGA TOUR rookie of the year, is having another strong season after winning the Farmers Insurance Open and recording both a runner-up and a third-place finish in five top-10 finishes this year; he finished tied for 10th at the Masters. He led the FedExCup point standings earlier this year, but a rib injury hampered his play. The 2012 FedExCup champion has eight PGA TOUR wins and 11 overall. He is currently seventh in the FedExCup point standings and 23rd in the Official World Golf Rankings. Snedeker will be making his 10th-consecutive Wyndham Championship appearance; in addition to his 2007 win, he recorded top-eight finishes here in 2009, ’10 and ‘14. Justin Thomas, 23, won his first PGA TOUR event earlier this season when he captured the CIMB Classic; in addition, he finished tied for third at the Frys.com Open, the Honda Classic and the Players Championship earlier this year. Thomas is no stranger to Sedgefield Country Club; he won the 2009 AJGA Haas Family Invitational and claimed an exemption into the Wyndham as the HFI champion. The University of Alabama alumnus was just 16 years old when he made his PGA TOUR debut that year; he fired an opening 65 followed by a two-over-par 72 to become the third- youngest player to make the 36-hole cut in PGA TOUR history. However, he did not make the cut after the third round and officially finished tied for 78th. This year’s tournament will mark his third Wyndham Championship appearance. Thomas is 10th in the current FedExCup point standings and 39th in the Official World Golf Rankings.
