Sanderson Farm Championship Preview: Top Golf Betting Tips for Success

Sandersons Farm Championship tips

The Sanderson Farms Championship is played annually in Mississippi. The tournament has been part of the PGA Tour schedule since 1968.

Originally played at the Hattiesburg Country Club in Hattiesburg, the event moved to Annandale Golf Club, Madison in 1994. In 2014 the tournament moved to the Country Club of Jackson in Jackson, Mississippi.

From 1999 to 2006, the tournament was known as the Southern Farm Bureau Classic, from 2007 to 2011 as the Viking Classic and in 2012 as the True South Classic. The current tournament sponsor, Sanderson Farms, took over sponsorship in 2013 and is one of the United States’ leading food corporations based in Mississippi.

Historically, the tournament was played opposite one of the Majors or a WGC event and was deemed an “alternate event” on the PGA Tour. However, since 2019 the tournament was elevated to a full-field, stand-alone event on the Tour. The winner receives the full benefits of a regular PGA Tour event, with 500 FedEx Cup points and an invitation to The Masters.

This week, underestimate the potential of long shots and dark horses emerging victorious around the Country Club of Jackson. In golf, surprises happen frequently.

Course Overview

The Country Club of Jackson opened in 1914. It is a private club with 27 holes comprising three sets of nine holes, Dogwood, Azalea and Cypress. Dogwood and Azalea combine for the championship course with Dogwood serving as the opening nine holes. The championship layout measures 7,421 yards from the back sticks.

Originally designed by Dick Wilson, John Fought redesigned the championship course in 2008/09. The remodeled layout can be best described as a parkland style routing with smallish, tricky greens. The green complexes vary in size 5,000 to 8,500 square feet and are often sitting-up with testing run-off areas.

Adam Svensson golf betting tips

Adam Svensson 33/1 (E/W) – a regular at the Sanderson Farms Championship, however, he has no form of note around the Country Club of Jackson. That said, he has an eye-catching 6 x Top 40 finishes in his last six starts on Tour including a T7 at the Wyndham Championship and a T15 at the BMW Championship. The 29-year-old Canadian has no real weakness to his game, he just simply does a lot of things right. A point highlighted by his Top 15 placement in this week’s Stats Analysis. Absence of tournament form is mitigated by other compelling arguments. Good each way value.
