Tournament Storylines

The Sedgefield Country Club
2018 marks the 10th consecutive year that Sedgefield Country Club has hosted an AJGA Invitational. Home to the PGA TOUR's Wyndham Championship, the Club features two courses designed by architects Donald Ross and Pete Dye. The Donald Ross Course plays host to the Wyndham Championship, and usually, the AJGA's Wyndham Invitational presented by BB&T. In 2018, the Wyndham Invitational presented by BB&T will be hosted on the Pete Dye Course due to winter storms affecting the Donald Ross Course. The Pete Dye Course features two lakes, and many of the holes feature Dye’s signature railroad ties.
