DFS PGA Playbook - Sanderson Farms Championship
Steve Pimental explores every Fairway, reads every Green and uses his DFS Golf experience to put together a winning DFS Playbook for the Sanderson Farms Championship.
Watching Bryson DeChambeau bomb and gouge Winged Foot into submission is fine, I guess, but I think Hudson Swafford getting his second career PGA Tour victory after starting the week at 200-1 is a better story. While Swafford did come out of nowhere, he is as capable as anyone of getting a hot putter for four days, which is essentially what happened. Swafford did not have a single three-putt the entire week, and while he gave up a big lead on Sunday, he eventually righted they ship to hold on.
This week’s Sanderson Farms Championship could be awfully similar to what we saw last week at Punta Cana. The field is slightly stronger, and the course is slightly shorter, but at the end of the day we have a weak field in what figures to be a putting contest. I think we also have an excellent chance at seeing another longshot win. Of the six winners at Country Club of Jackson, three had +10000 odds or greater and none had shorter odds than Cameron Champ at +4500 in 2018. Unlike Punta Cana, we may get new blood in the winner’s circle, as all six winners at Jackson were first-time winners on the PGA Tour.
Sanderson Farms has had 6 straight first-time winners.
The par 72, 7,461 yard Country Club of Jackson has seen low scores all six seasons it has hosted the Sanderson Farms Championship, with each of the last five champions finishing -18 or better. The rough is not particularly punishing, and while shorter hitters can compete here, distance off the tee is an advantage. Par 5 scoring is important, but at the end of the day, putting figures to be the most important aspect this week.
KEY STATS TO TARGET: SG: Putting, Par 5 Scoring, Driving Distance
ONE AND DONE PICK: Sebastian Munoz
