GREENSBORO, N.C.  - Three former major championship winners, Zach Johnson, Lucas Glover and Stewart Cink, have all joined the Wyndham Championship field, it was announced today.  The 74th annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug. 12-18, 2013.

These players join a field that also includes commitments from defending champion Sergio Garcia, reigning FedExCup champion and 2007 Wyndham winner Brandt Snedeker, 2011 Wyndham winner and 2012 U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson as well as former Wyndham winners Davis Love III and Carl Pettersson.

Johnson is 26th in the Official World Golf Rankings and 28th in the current FedExCup point standings.  The nine-time PGA TOUR winner won the Masters in 2007.  He has two previous Wyndham Championship appearances but has not played the Wyndham since 2008. 

Glover will be making his 10th consecutive Wyndham Championship appearance next month.  He finished seventh in 2010 and tied for sixth in 2006 for his best two finishes here.  Last year, Glover withdrew from the Wyndham because of knee pain and had knee surgery later that month.  The Clemson University alumnus won the 2009 U.S. Open, and his most recent victory was the 2011 Wells Fargo Championship.  He is 91st in the current FedExCup point standings.  

Cink, a Georgia Tech alumnus, is making his fifth Wyndham Championship appearance but his first since 2006, and this year's tournament will be his first at Sedgefield Country Club.  Cink, the 2009 Open Championship winner, is 72nd in the current FedExCup point standings.
