Introduction to CC OF JACKSON
The Sanderson Farms Championship was established in 1986 and has been at the Country Club of Jackson in Jackson, Mississippi since 2013. In recent years, as the TOUR has pushed more of a wrap-around schedule, the quality of field has diminished compared to its early days.
Overall, like many other Fall Swing setups, CC of Jackson offers little resistance to the field and has often boiled down to a birdie fest, where players who excel putting on Bermuda greens and have above-average distance off the tee, have prevailed.
How It Breaks Down
The scorecard reads 7,462 yards for this par-72 at Country Club of Jackson, however the true distance plays much shorter, with players able to pull driver regularly here to cut off angles. This has helped open up the playing field to both long and short hitters off the tee, as regardless of length, most approach shots tend to find themselves in the 100-150 yard range.
Par-5 Scoring will be pivotal yet again this week, and with three out of four par-5s measuring over 580 yards, there’s an advantage to be had on these holes for players who possess the distance to reach in two. Seven of the par-4s measure under 450 yards, including the drivable 330-yard 15th hole, which plays as the second easiest scoring hole on the course.
Overall there is a fairly even split of ten holes with a scoring average under par, and eight holes which average over par. That is skewed in part by the lack of star-power in these Sanderson Farms fields, but in any case, the winning score has regularly lived in the -18 to -22 range.
Traits And Recent Notable Facts
There are no defining characteristics at Country Club of Jackson which pose a formidable challenge to the field compared to the other courses on the PGA TOUR rotation. Like Silverado, this course ranks bottom-10 in fairway width, which has yielded Fairway in Regulation percentages well below TOUR average. But despite the challenges TOUR players often face with Bermuda rough, these larger greens have been receptive to approaches from the rough, as Greens In Regulation percentage here is well above average at 73%.
Last year, the Par-3 Scoring average was bottom-3 in difficulty, leveling the advantage to be had by top-tier par-3 scorers. What I found most interesting though, is that the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship marked the first time since 2015 where Putting Difficulty ranked bottom-10, and no course on TOUR last season allowed more putts to drop from outside 15 feet. That is not necessarily a reflection on these greens, but rather a suggestion that we are less likely to see multiple scores beyond 20-under-par this year when putting regression corrects itself. It’s pretty remarkable to consider that Sam Burns won this event despite losing 2 strokes putting, in an event where the larger field was holing putts from all over the green.

As mentioned above, recent history has shown that underdogs have fared well in winning the Sanderson Farms outright.
If you’re indecisive about picking an overall winner, look at the top-10 odds. In this case, as long as the golfer finishes among the top-10 players the bet will pay out. However, the odds might not be as attractive so look for some value with a “+” in front of the odds.
Course conditions and weather might impact performances as well. Consider doing a little research prior to the AT&T Byron Nelson begins.
