Sanderson Farms Championship TicketsSanderson Farms, based in Laurel, Mississippi, has lent its name to this PGA event since 2013. Thanks to a 10-year extension following the 2015 event, Sanderson Farms will continue as the title sponsor through 2026. Throughout its history, the Sanderson Farms Championship has been Mississippi’s sole PGA Tour tournament. Since its founding in 1968, winners of the event have included Fred Funk (1998, 2004) and Ryan Armour (2017), who finished as runner-up to Tiger Woods in the 1993 U.S. Junior Championship. Armour and 2019 winner Sebastian Munoz earned their first PGA Tour victories in the Sanderson Farms Championship. Some of this event’s runners-up have won majors. Paul Azinger, who finished second in 1986, defeated Greg Norman in a playoff to capture the 1993 PGA Championship. Nick Faldo, the 1987 runner-up, has won three Masters (1989, 1990 and 1996) and three Open Championships (1987, 1990 and 1992).
