Sanderson Farms Championship updates: First round called

By

The first round of the 2019 Sanderson Farms Championship at the Country Club of Jackson in Jackson, Mississippi was called for the day at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday due to “lingering storms in the area”, the PGA Tour tweeted.

The first round will resume at 7 a.m. ET on Friday. Half the field completed their first rounds. There are 156 golfers in the field.

The tournament no longer an opposite-field event. In recent seasons, it went up against the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions tournament in China.

There is a record purse of $6.4 million this year, up from $4.4 million a season ago. This year’s winner receives 500 FedExCup points. Last year’s got 300. Cameron Champ is back to defend his title. Junior phenom Akshay Bhatia is in the field on a sponsor exemption, his first event as a professional.
