After an exciting week at the Presidents Cup 2022, the PGA Tour is back to its regular game schedule. The 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship will return the PGA Tour to its normal state and provide a field fit for an outside winner. Defending champion Sam Burns led the event, looking to avoid the same fate as 2020 winner Sergio Garcia: a former champion who missed the cut in his title defense.

Garcia arrived in Jackson right after an emotional 2021 Ryder Cup and the parallels between Burns and the President’s Cup are clear. While Burns may be out of his depth with the Sunday festivities, the recent alumni of the Korn Ferry Tour will be biting at the bit. Led by Taylor Montgomery, several rookies plan to play at the Jackson Country Club and continue their quest to get their first PGA Tour campaigns off to the right start.

Montgomery had just finished third in the Fortinet Championship and was one of three recent graduates to make the top ten in Napa. There should be more of the same in reserve, as both bombers and hard workers have argued over that parity of 72 in the past.

Let’s take a closer look at the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship taking place this week with odds provided by bookmaker Caesars.

Sanderson Farms 2022 Championship Field Odds

  • Sam Burns (10-1): The reigning champion is a clear field class. Regardless, the four-time PGA Tour winner’s recent results have been far from the best. After accumulating a 0-3-2 record at the Presidents’ Cup, Burns was one of the few Americans who failed to win at Quayle Hollow. Prior to its time in Charlotte, the LSU product limped into the 2021–22 FedEx Cup playoffs and hasn’t made the top 10 since June. If he is in the game, he will run away from this field, but this can be a big problem, given the status of his game.
  • Sahit Tigala (18-1): A breakout win seems imminent and Jackson could be the perfect landing spot for Tigala. Having just entered T6 on the Fortinet Championship, the 24-year-old returns to the scene of his first close encounter on the PGA tour. Leading three rounds a season ago, his rookie experience should serve him well in his third Sanderson Farms Championship appearance.
  • Russell Henley (22-1)
  • Taylor Montgomery (25-1): With one event, the hype was confirmed as Montgomery was considered by many to be a potential Rookie of the Year candidate. With a third-place finish at the Fortinet Championship, the 27-year-old is looking to bolster his efforts at this week’s season opener in Jackson. On paper, the Jackson Country Club is statistically perfect for Montgomery; he is far enough away from the target and exits the tournament where he has scored over 11 hits.
  • Scott Stallings (25-1)
  • JT Poston (25-1)
  • Denny McCarthy (25-1): The Jackson Country Club has been kind to McCarthy throughout his career and should do so again this week. His last four appearances in Mississippi were: T17, T6, T18, T7. A maestro with a stick in his hand, if McCarthy repeats his hitting the ball from last season, he should have a real opportunity to take his first victory on the PGA Tour.
  • Davis Riley (33-1): A Mississippi boy returns to his home state for the fourth time looking for a uniform. Having been out of the top 10 since May, Riley is back from a memorable performance in Napa where he missed and lost nearly six shots on the green in just two rounds. After he struggled with some consistency in his opener, a victory seems likely during his second season, but maybe not this week.
  • Emiliano Grillo (33-1)
  • Keegan Bradley (35–1)
  • Trey Mullinax (35-1)
