Sanderson Farms Championship Picks and Predictions

There is not a top ten golfer at the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship this week. Some of the best golfers in the world are taking this week off after participating in the Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow last week, while others are simply enjoying the rest and relaxation early in the season. Sam Burns is the top-ranked golfer here, and he is 10-1 to win this tournament. However, it’s best to avoid him at this price after he really struggled at the Presidents Cup.

The 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship will be held at the Country Club of Jackson in Jackson, Mississippi. This event will take place from September 29 to October 2, 2022.

J.T. POSTON TO WIN (+2000)

There’s a lot to like about J.T. Poston this week. Poston has been in fine form over the last few months, finishing T2 at the Travelers Championship and winning the John Deere Classic in back-to-back weekends over the summer. He failed to make the cut at The Open Championship, but he has four T21 finishes in his last five events, and he finished T15 at the TOUR Championship.

Poston failed to make the cut at this event in 2021, but he qualified to play on Saturday and Sunday in each of his five previous appearances in Jackson. He earned a T3 finish in 2020 and a T11 finish in 2019, so he has recent success at this course. Poston is in his prime at 29, and he could win his third event on Sunday.

SAM BURNS TO MISS THE CUT (+400)

Sam Burns is coming off the best season of his career. He won three events during the 2021-22 season, including the Sanderson Farms Championship. However, Burns has not been in great form over the past few months. We haven’t seen him finish T18 or better in seven straight tournaments, and Burns had a tough time at Quail Hollow last week. This could be a short week for him, as he knows he is not at his best.

TREY MULLINAX TOP 10 FINISH (+1000)

As a University of Alabama graduate that was born in Birmingham, Trey Mullinax has plenty of experience on courses in the Southeastern United States. He won the Barbasol Championship over the summer to claim his first title on the PGA Tour, and he finished T4 at this event last year.

Mullinax failed to make the cut at the Fortinet Championship two weeks ago as his driver was erratic. He only hit the fairway on 32.1% of his drives, and that led to him ranking outside the Top 100 in GIR. Mullinax is more familiar on this course, so he won’t need to try to take big swings with his driver. That makes him a nice value to finish in the top ten at 10-1.
