The Sanderson Farms Championship is this week’s tournament on the PGA Tour schedule. The event took on its current name in 2013 but, if you’re studying the formbook this week, it has only been played at the Country Club of Jackson since 2014.
The course is a par-72 measuring over 7,400 yards, but the fairways are generous, with many of the holes being straight. Trees are a feature, but they’re not dense enough to guarantee to cause a problem even if players stray offline. The Bermuda grass greens are average in size and traditionally run at about 12 on the stimpmeter.
Scottie Scheffler is the favourite this week and this looks a great chance for him to break his PGA Tour duck. He’s posted five consecutive top-20 finishes, including three top-5s, and all those performances came in better fields than he faces this week. But do you really want to be taking 10/1 or less about a player whose putter often lets him down in the fiercest heat of battle?
Sunjae Im could easily win another title this week and he showed his liking for the course when finishing second last season. Two top-11s in his last five tournaments suggest he has a big week in him soon, but odds of 14/1 don’t look over generous. His fellow Korean An Byeong-Hun finished third last year and has also posted some good finishes of late.
Will Zalatoris doesn’t know how to have a bad week and nine consecutive top-18 finishes in a mix of Korn Ferry Tour and PGA Tour events suggest he’ll find the winner’s enclosure soon. But this is his tournament debut and you’re taking a chance that he’ll take an instant like to the course.
Sam Burns has shot plenty of low rounds lately, but he’s hasn’t yet put four good rounds together at the same event. It could be this week but, after he blew a lead when we were on at 50/1 a few weeks ago, I’ll let him pass at half those odds. Last year’s winner Sebastien Munoz has also been in decent form of late but there have been no back-to-back winners of this event so far.
Carlos Ortiz is our Sanderson Farms Championship tip at a much bigger price. He’s shot under par in all eight rounds he’s played at the Country Club of Jackson, finishing third and fourth the last two years. He’s looked to be playing near his best in his last two tournaments and comes here nice and fresh to what must be one of his favourite events.
