The Sanderson Farms Championship has been on the PGA TOUR for close to 20 years, and since then, we’ve seen a handful of first-time winners lift the trophy in Jackson, Mississippi. Ball-striking, with a slight emphasis on SG: Off-the-Tee, should be the recipe for success this week, with the past few winners ranking inside the top 10 off-the-tee for the tournament. Putting on these fast Bermuda greens is also going to be vital to success.
Over the previous five years, the average winning odds are +9000, with Sebastian Munoz and Cameron Champ at +6000, while Cody Gribble and Ryan Amour were both listed at +12500. From 2012 to 2015, the winners all sported deeper odds than +10000, so this is the time to take some longshots.

Like the preview article stated, Rodgers is playing well, finishing inside the top five in two of his previous five tournaments, and he ranks seventh in SG: Total over the last 24 rounds. Rodgers has gained strokes off-the-tee in eight of his last nine tournaments and ranks 27th in SG: Putting on Bermuda over the previous 24 rounds.
Poston’s recent tournament results read three-straight MCs, which is why he’s a potential value this week with how he sets up at CC of Jackson. A 28th at the 3M Open and a runner up finish at the Barbasol preceded his three missed cuts, and his stellar record here could give him the confidence he needs to finally get back in the winner’s circle.
Clark also deserves some consideration in this range. His advantage with the big stick should give him confidence this week, along with his recent 30th at the Fortinet Championship after missing the cut in his six prior tournaments. Clark’s made the weekend here in three of his four starts, with a 17th in 2017 as his best finish. He’s also someone who can start strong, so taking a flier on Clark leader after Round 1 (+11000) is something to sprinkle on that could payout on the first day — but only as a dart play.
