Looking For A Longshot At The Sanderson Farms Championship

Most the top ranked players are missing this week at the Sanderson Farms Championship, but the field has improved and gotten stronger at this event the last two years.

Still, as I noted in my Sanderson Farms Championship preview at TheLines, no golfer with odds below 60/1 has won this event since it moved to The Country Club of Jackson in 2014. That provides another opportunity to target more golfers with longshot odds to win or finish top-10 or top-20.


  • Course: The Country Club of Jackson
  • Location: Jackson, Mississippi
  • Date: Oct. 1-4, 2020
