Founded 81 years ago in 1938 as the Greater Greensboro Open, it was usually played in April or May, until a schedule change in 2003 moved it toward the end of the season. Less than two months shy of age 53, Sam Snead set PGA Tour records in 1965 for his eighth win at an event and as the oldest winner of a tournament; both records still stand. Davis Love III, the 2015 champion at age 51, is the oldest to win in the senior tour era, which began in 1980.
In 2007, the event was renamed the Wyndham Championship when Wyndham Hotels & Resorts took over from DaimlerChrysler as title sponsor, and dropped "Greensboro" from the title. It moved from an autumn date to mid-August and is the last PGA Tour event before the FedEx Cup Playoffs, as one last chance to qualify for the FedEx Cup and retain their tour privileges if not already exempt.
The purse for 2015 was $5.4 million, with a winner's share of $972,000.
On August 16, 2018, during the first round, Brandt Snedeker shot a 59. It was the tenth sub-60 round in the history of the PGA Tour, and just the third with a bogey. Snedeker shot a 27 on the inward nine, burying a twenty foot putt from the fringe to make history.
The event has been played in the Greensboro area for its entire history. In its first four years, it was played at both Sedgefield Country Club and Starmount Forest Country Club. During World War II, it shifted solely to Starmount Forest in 1942, and was not held in 1943 and 1944. Starting in 1945, it alternated between Starmount Forest and Sedgefield until 1952, when Starmount Forest hosted for consecutive years.
It returned to Sedgefield in 1953 before Starmount Forest hosted three consecutive years (through 1956). Sedgefield hosted in 1957 and Starmount Forest hosted another three straight 1958–60, then back to Sedgefield from 1961 to 1976. It shifted to Forest Oaks Country Club from 1977 to 2007, then returned to Sedgefield in 2008. The course at Sedgefield was designed by noted architect Donald Ross; it opened 93 years ago in 1926 and was restored in 2007. (The other course of the 36-hole club was designed by Pete Dye, and was formerly known as Cardinal Golf and Country Club.) Ross also designed several courses at nearby Pinehurst Resort, including the notable No. 2 Course.
