The tournament said Snedeker won the Wyndham Championship in 2007 and again in 2018 shooting a course-record 59 in the first round becoming the 10th golfer in PGA TOUR history to shoot a sub-60 round in official tournament play.

Wyndham said Snedeker became the 10th multiple winner in tournament history. 

The tournament said Snedeker is second on the Wyndham Championship career money list with $2,902,309, 57th in the Official World Golf Rankings and 79th in the FedExCup point standings.

According to Wyndham, Pettersson won the Wyndham in 2008, the year it returned to Sedgefield Country Club, set records that year for lowest 36-hole total, lowest 54-hole total and lowest 72-hole total at 259, 21-under par.

Wyndham said Pettersson is semi-retired, graduated from Grimsley High School and NC State University.

According to Wyndham, Atwal accepted an exemption into the Wyndham field as he celebrates 10 years since his Wyndham Championship victory.

Wyndham said after entering the field Monday as a qualifier, he led wire-to-wire on his way to the win, although he shared the second-round lead.

The tournament said his first PGA TOUR victory was his 10th international win, and he became the first Indian-born winner in PGA TOUR history.
