The PGA Tour has extended its contract with the Greenbrier Classic through 2021.

TROPHY WAGs

For some golfers, the biggest prizes aren't their tournament wins but their wives and girlfriends.

Greenbrier Resort owner Jim Justice made the announcement Tuesday.

Justice bought the resort in 2009, and the tournament debuted a year later as a replacement on the FedEx Cup schedule for the Buick Open in Michigan. The Greenbrier Classic's original contract was set to run through 2015.

Justice called the first three years of the tournament ''a thrilling ride'' and said the state of West Virginia has embraced the tournament from the beginning.

This year's tournament starts Thursday on the Old White TPC Course.
