Harrington Wins Another Major but Skips Wyndham Championship This Week
Thursday, August 14, 2008
Last week, The Timeshare Authority told you about Padraig Harrington, the winner of golf’s 2007 and 2008 British Open, who bought a fractional villa at Oceânico Group’s Vilamoura Golf & Garden Resort in Portugal. He must have been sleeping well at night after buying his 5-bedroom timeshare at the popular vacation ownership resort, because he was once again playing great golf this past week, holing unbelievable putts, and going on to claim the Wanamaker trophy on Sunday at the PGA Championship. And after winning back to back Majors, we can cut the Irish super-talent some slack for not playing in this week’s Wyndham Championship, held in Greensboro, NC.
Wyndham Championship Carries on Golfing Tradition
Although the Wyndham Championship is not one of golf’s Majors, it is still a pressure-packed event for many of the golfers in the field. The Wyndham Championship is the final tournament that gives the players a chance to pull themselves into (or hold onto) a spot among the top 144 in the FedEx Cup standings and thereby qualify for the PGA TOUR Playoffs.
The mountains of North Carolina are a popular timeshare resort destination and Greensboro itself holds a special place in golfing history as a favorite Tour-stop since the days of legendary pros, Sam Snead and Byron Nelson. Effective last year, the Greater Greensboro Open officially became the Wyndham Championship sponsored by Wyndham Resorts and Wyndham timeshare. At the time of the announcement, Wyndham’s CEO, Stephen P. Holmes explained that one of the reasons the company chose to sponsor a PGA Tour event in this location was because so many timeshare owners live in the Raleigh-Durham-Greensboro area.
North Carolina Timeshare
North Carolina timeshare offers vacation destinations from the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains in the west to the Atlantic coast beaches. Wyndham has nearly 200 hotels and resorts in North Carolina, including Wyndham timeshare at the Wyndham Resort at Fairfield Harbour, the Wyndham Resort at Fairfield Mountains, and the Wyndham Resort at Fairfield Sapphire Valley. SellMyTimeshareNOW.com has a large and attractive inventory of timeshare resales and timeshare rentals in North Carolina timeshare, Wyndham timeshares, and excellent golf timeshare resorts.
Predictions for the Wyndham Championship and for Wyndham Timeshare Owners
As you follow the leaderboard in this week’s Wyndham Championship, look for both Jeev Singh and ViJay as possible leaders. Jeev, because his game is coming along so well right now, and ViJay, just because he is due a comeback, especially after he played so poorly last week. The course is a little shorter than many Tour venues and plays tight with Donald Ross greens, so it will favor someone who had good control of his game. Since it hasn’t been a tournament course in over 30 years, no one comes in with an advantage of having won here in the past. Other names to watch this week include Paul Casey, David Toms, and Brian Gay, as the course and the timing are right for any of these outstanding golfers.
With the stakes this high and so much talent in the field, it’s hard to call a winner, but I won’t shy away from making this prediction: Buying a Wyndham timeshare resale is an excellent way to start enjoying a lifetime of vacations at a price that is just too good to pass up.
