Sanderson Farms Championship – Gambling/DFS Preview 2021

Country Club of Jackson – Jackson, MS

Course Breakdown

Par 72, 7461 yds, 6 Par 4s between 400-450 yds, slightly above average width tree lined fairways with bunkers guarding the landing zones, trees aren’t too dense and penal, much lower driving accuracy here vs. tour average (54% vs. 62%), higher GIR % here vs. tour average (69% vs. 66%), birdie rate on the Par 5s is in the bottom 15 of courses on tour each year so they aren’t as easy as on other courses, the 15th hole is a drivable Par 4, Bermuda rough is only around 2 inches so shouldn’t be too hard to hit out of but could have some tough lies, above average sized elevated Bermuda greens with a bit of undulation, guarded by bunkers, water and runoff areas, greens are pretty receptive
