The 2023 Sanderson Farms Championship is here and this year it will take place at the picturesque Country Club of Jackson, Mississippi. The course, known for its generous Bermuda grass fairways and lightning-fast Champion Bermudagrass greens measuring over 12 on the stimp meter, promises an exciting week of golf.

As we delve into the event, we’ll also explore the chances of prominent contenders like Hayden Buckley, 2015 champion Peter Malnati, and the up-and-coming Englishman, Callum Tarren, in this highly anticipated competition.

Will Haydon Buckley be fast out the blocks in Jackson?

Yes, looking at Hayden Buckley’s brief history on the PGA Tour he is likely to be fast out of the blocks.

His couple of seasons on Tour have been punctuated with strong efforts when fresh, none more so than earlier in the year at the Sony Open in Hawaii when he finished runner-up, his best result in the big league.

Indeed, I put him up for that event based on my notes on how well Buckley plays when fresh something we saw a glimpse of last time out in the St. Jude Championship when he performed creditably off a break

Hayden Buckley's (+6000) odds to win this week's Sanderson Farms Championship at our top sportsbooks offer ample compensation for the possibility of him not emerging victorious.

Why 2015 Champion, Peter Malnati has a strong look?

2015 champion, Peter Malnati gives me a strong look this week at one of the few venues we can confidently back the thirty-six-year-old journeyman. The Indiana player was runner-up here in 2020 to Sergio Garcia to illustrate his affinity with the Jackson Country Club in Mississippi.

It’s been a quite time on the PGA Tour since the Tour Championship with only the Fortinet Championship played a couple of weeks ago to use for clues.

So, with Peter Malnati looking in fine form in the Californian event where he was 11th, that is a big enough clue to back him this week in a few different markets.

Historically, Peter Malnati is one of the fastest starters on the PGA Tour so small stakes in that market with a lower stake for a second title here. The bet I do like, is for a healthier stake is the solid prop pick of top 20.

Can Callum win the Sanderson Farms?

Yes, I think this could be the perfect time for Englishman Callum Tarren to strike while the iron is hot this week and win the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Let’s investigate the case of the well-traveled thirty-two-year-old from the Northeast of England. At the Fortinet Championship a 7th place showed he was in good form, indeed his Achilles heel that is his putting, looked to have improved.

Despite always seemingly struggling with his short game Tarren has established himself on the PGA Tour, bypassing his home DP World Tour in the process after learning his trade on the China and Asian Tours between 2016 and 2018.

That nomadic travel illustrates an extremely ambitious player and this week with some of the big guns rested for the year, represents a good opportunity given Tarren was 13th here last year.

Look to bet Callum Tarren in the top 20 market with a more modest investment on the outright win at BMR's best sportsbook.
