Only at Wyndham Cup

Admission to attend Wyndham Cup at The Stanwich Club is free this week, and a quick look at the tournament’s 26-year history suggests that this price is an absolute bargain.

Before they were teammates on four Ryder Cup and four Presidents Cup teams, Stewart Cink and Tiger Woods battled against each other at the inaugural Wyndham Cup.

Before they wore the red, white and blue on five Solheim Cup teams, Morgan Pressel wore red on the East Team and Paula Creamer wore blue on the West Team.

And before they parted ways for the PGA and LPGA Tours, Brian Harman and Inbee Park were East teammates and mixed four-ball partners.

The Stanwich Club last hosted Wyndham Cup in 2008, and those matches held true to the event’s historic formula, as Jordan Spieth led the West to a 30-20 victory over Lexi Thompson and the East Team. Victoria Tanco posted a 4-0-0 record for the East, while the victorious West Team was led by Michael Jae Woo Im (4-0-0), Cory Whitsett (3-0-1) and Tiffany Lua (3-0-1).

This year’s Wyndham Cup rosters feature USGA champions, Rolex Junior All-Americans and dozens of future college golfers. Every match this week is significant for these 40 players and their teams, and over time, every match will gain even greater historical significance.
