Sanderson’s Farm Championship Winning Formula

Country Club of Jackson is a 7,400+ yard Par 72 that was originally designed by Dick Wilson and opened for play 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.

The course is best characterised as open parkland with small, tricky greens. The green complexes vary in size and are often sitting-up with testing run-off areas. This week is all about what happens greenside. Players will need a solid tee-to-green game with a better than average week with the flat-stick.

Almost one third of Champ’s overall strokes gained for the week came in the Strokes Gained Off-The-Tee category topping the pile for Driving Distance. However, it was a red-hot flat stick that sealed the deal for the big-hitter from California. Over half his overall shots gained came greenside, finishing second in the Strokes Gained Putting Category. This yielded a gain of just over 9 strokes for the week. Other performance indicators for the week include T65 for Driving Accuracy, T9 for GIR and 1st for Putts per GIR.

It was solid ball-striking which laid the foundation for Munoz’s victory. The Colombian drove the ball long and well finishing 4th in Strokes Gained Off-The-Tee. However, like most weeks, its a hot putter that ultimately gets the job done. He finished 5th in Strokes Gained Putting which translated to a gain of 6.25 strokes or just over 50% of his overall gain. Other stats for the week include T36 for Driving Accuracy, 3rd for Driving Distance, T9 for GIR and 11th for Putts per GIR.
