With the 2022 Presidents Cup now in the rearview mirror, the 2022-23 PGA Tour season resumes in Jackson, Mississippi for the Sanderson Farms Championship.
This is the first of eight full events remaining on the Tour’s 2022 calendar. Sam Burns is the reigning champion and took the field after his international debut for the USA in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Burns played all five sessions but did not win a match 0-3-2. From the international team, Christian Bezuidenhout and Sebastian Munoz are also on the field at the Jackson Country Club.
The city of Jackson faced severe drinking water problems caused by flooding, although the city’s water crisis did not affect the track as the city operates its own off-grid system with water from a nearby aquifer.

“We have four weeks left,” said Sanderson Farms Championship CEO Steve Gent. earlier this month. “This is our advantage, right? So we still have a month before the tournament so the city can fix something.”
Munoz, who won 2-0-1 at the Presidents’ Cup in his debut international competition, won the 2019 Sanderson Farms Championship in the playoffs by defeating Sungjae Im. Cameron Champ, who is on the field, won in 2018.
This week, 144 players have started. The Tour heads to Las Vegas next week for the Shriners Children’s Open.
