Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., will host the PGA Tour’s Wyndham Championship Aug. 11-16.

Ahead of the tournament, the course recently debuted a new short-game practice area, designed by Steve Wenzloff, senior vice president of design services for the PGA Tour.

“While the COVID-19 outbreak prevented Wenzloff from getting out onto the golf course to try to replicate some of the Donald Ross features for the two new practice greens, he was able to incorporate ShotLink technology to review data from every Sedgefield green complex,” said Brian Kittler, director of golf for McConnell Golf, which manages Sedgefield CC.

The 2-acre area is located in front of the course’s clubhouse. It features two bermudagrass greens, bunkers and fairways. It features closely mowed areas off the side slopes and side shoulders of the green where Kittler says players can focus on putting the ball up the slope or practice a pitch shot up the embankment to a tight pin.
