THANK YOU to the hundreds of thousands of volunteers, sponsors and spectators that graced the paths of The Old White TPC during the 2012 Greenbrier Classic. Without your dedication and support The Greenbrier Classic would not be the Event of the Summer on the PGA TOUR.
The 2012 Greenbrier Classic once again kept fans pinned to their seats with a sudden death playoff for the championship for the second year in a row. With threatening weather advancing, Ted Potter, Jr and Troy Kelly tied at -16, returned to the tee of #18 for the tie-breaker. After both gentlemen halved the first two playoff holes, thousands of fans surrounded the 18th green and millions watched at home on CBS, waiting to see who would earn the signature Springhouse trophy and Greenbrier green jacket. Rookie Potter birdied the 3rd playoff hole for his first win on the PGA TOUR.
The official PGA TOUR FedEx Cup event will return to The Greenbrier July 1 - 7, 2013 with a field of 156 PGA TOUR professionals competing for a $6.3 million purse. We will be honored to welcome back the players and fans of the PGA TOUR to The Greenbrier Classic.
Join us next year for what promises to be another spectacular event combining great golf and incredible concerts, it's the most anticipated stop on the PGA TOUR and the summer's hottest ticket. Join us as we once again celebrate America's Birthday at America's Resort.
