After a historic Ryder Cup in September, the PGA Tour will continue with its schedule in October.

The event was moved to the Country Club of Jackson in 2014, which was redesigned in 2008 by John Faught. The putting surfaces can be challenging for the players, with a good amount of difficulties scattered across the course. Additionally, the club itself also offers other amenities like the organization of weddings and other events, even restaurants, along with a pool and spa.

This event has been a part of the Tour since 1968. It started out as the Magnolia Classic till 1985, changing names till it turned to Sanderson Farms Championship in 2013. The sponsors are one of the USA’s largest food corporations (based in Mississippi itself).

Who won the Sanderson Farms Championship last year?

Sergio Garcia won last year, beating Peter Malnati to do so. “The course is in great shape again, like it was last year. Probably even better than it was,” Garcia said ahead of the event. “So very nice to be back here, obviously defending my title after a fun week last week.” The 41-year-old added that while the Ryder Cup is energy-consuming, he is excited to start his season well.

That being said, let’s take a look at the prize pool and breakdown for the Sanderson Farms Championship.
