From October 2 to 8, The Country Club of Jackson will host the Sanderson Farms Championship, one of the oldest tournaments on the PGA Tour, with a rich history dating back to 1968. Champions such as Roger Maltbie, Craig Stadler, and Payne Stewart have played on its turf.
Based in Mississippi, this competition will award 8.2 million dollars in prize money, of which 1.4 million dollars will go to the champion, who will seek to succeed Canadian Mackenzie Hughes. In addition, this competition is no longer an alternative and will award 500 points in the FedEx Cup and an invitation to the Masters, so the competitors who will be there will have a great motivation to win.

Being a tournament for fresh faces to stand out, the great favorite is the Swedish Ludvig Aberg, who at 23 years old has won the Ben Hogan award as the most outstanding in the college category in 2022 and 2023, something that has not happened since the times of the Spanish Jon Rahm, one of the most important golfers today.
His professional career began this year and he was already able to add a triumph to his list of achievements when he won the Omega European Masters, with 19 strokes under par and leaving his compatriot Alexander Björk as runner-up.
At 31 years of age, Argentine Emiliano Grillo is one of the most experienced faces in the tournament, having participated in several majors throughout his career.
At the PGA Tour level, he won the Frys.com Open in the United States in 2015 and in these same lands, he won the Charles Schwab Challenge this year.
However, this year the South American was in the Top 6 of The Open Championship, his most important participation in the circuit. Grillo will seek to repeat what another Latin American, Colombian Sebastián Muñoz, who lifted the trophy in 2019, has already done.
Eric Cole is another of the experienced players who will have the grass of The Country Club of Jackson, as he has 14 years of experience.
The 35-year-old American has 12 titles in his career and this year he won the Palm Beach Country Open, with 18 under par, beating his compatriot Chris Wiatr. He was also 15th in the PGA Championship and 39th in the US Open this year.
It should be noted that Cole this year was also runner-up in The Honda Classic, losing the playoff to American Chris Kirk.
German Stephan Jäeger is another name with several trophies in his cabinet, having won the Ellie Mae Classic, the BMW Charity Pro-Am, the Rust-Oleum Championship, the Knoxville Open, the Albertsons Boise Open, and the Emerald Coast Classic.
He was top 50 at the PGA Championship this year, reaching his best position in the world ranking (86).
Finally, among the most outstanding is Keith Mitchell, 31 years old and professional since 2015. The most important triumph of his career came at The Honda Classic in 2019, beating the historic Ricki Fowler and Brooks Koepka. This year he was top 20 at the US Open.
It is important to note that the Sanderson Farms Championship is one of the last competitions of the year on the PGA Tour, as only five more tournaments remain.
