The PGA Tour heads back to the east coast this week for the final regular-season event of the summer: the Wyndham Championship.

Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina, will host the 156-man field. All of the competitors will attempt to improve their FedEx Cup standing ahead of the postseason. Only the top 125 on the points list after Wyndham will advance to next week's tournament while retaining full Tour status for the 2020-21 campaign.

Even though most of golf's superstars are skipping the Wyndham Championship, there are still plenty of intriguing storylines to follow as the season comes to a close.

When: Aug. 13-Aug. 16

Sedgefield Country Club is a 7,131-yard, par-70 classic designed by Donald Ross. The tree-lined venue places an emphasis on driving accuracy as opposed to distance off the tee. Players who are hitting their irons with precision and rolling it well on the greens can make a ton of birdies, with previous winning scores exceeding 20-under par.
