Following the Ryder Cup on the schedule is not a good place to be. Most of the top golfers will be taking some rest this week so we get a pretty crappy field in the Sanderson Farms Championship. This is a tournament when many golfers got their first win. The list of golfers who won for their first tournament on the PGA Tour includes: Mackenzie Hughes (2022), Cameron Champ (2018), Ryan Armour (2017), Cody Gribble (2016), Peter Malnati (2015), Nick Taylor (2014) and Chris Kirk (2011). There is a good chance we will get another first time winner this week.
The Country Club of Jackson will be the course this week. The Sanderson Farms Championship has been played at this course every year since 2014. Many of the golfers should be familiar with the layout.
The Country Club of Jackson is a 7,461 yard par 72. It is a pretty long course, but there are also some shorter holes which will allow the “bunters” to score too. The fairways are normal width and the rough is not too tough. This typically turns into a birdie fest and the golfers who put well are typically at the top of the leaderboard. The golfers who are dialed in from 100-150 yards tend to win this tournament.

* The Fantasy Golf season starts this week. The Sanderson Farms Championship is the second tournament in Segment 1. There are nine tournaments in this segment and we can use each golfer three times. I am not too worried about saving allocations in this segment because most of the top golfers will skip the fall segment.
