With the Presidents Cup in the rear-view mirror, the PGA Tour heads to Mississippi for the Sanderson Farms Championship at the Country Club of Jackson.
And if you like betting long shots, this is the tournament for you. While Sam Burns won as one of the favorites here last year, three of the five previous winners in Mississippi went off with triple-digit odds.
Part of the reason that the Sanderson Farms Championship has been a happy hunting ground for sleepers is that the Country Club of Jackson is a pretty beatable course, and the winner of this event usually sends up around 20-under par. That brings everybody into play and becomes about who has the hot putter this weekend.

With that in mind, here are a couple of players to keep an eye on at big prices.
2022 Sanderson Farms predictions and picks
Brendan Steele (+6600, BetMGM)
A trendy bet over the final few weeks of the summer, Brendan Steele never came through for his backers, which has caused his odds to drift into a playable range, especially in a field like this. Even though he missed the cut in two of his last three starts, Steele is one of the most consistent drivers in this field and should be a solid course fit at the Country Club of Jackson.

Davis Thompson (+10000, BetMGM)
This is the time of year when we begin to see the next generation of talent emerge, and Davis Thompson is going to be a name to keep an eye on for the next 12 months. He’s a former Georgia Bulldog, so he should enjoy the conditions of playing golf in this part of the country, and he’s coming off a strong performance at the Fortinet Championship, where he finished ninth. Davis ranks seventh in this field in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee, so like Steele he’s got the skill set required to go low at this course.
Brandon Matthews (+30000, Caesars)
If you’re looking for a deep, deep sleeper, you could do a lot worse than Brandon Matthews. A PGA Tour rookie, you can expect Matthews to be one of the longest hitters on tour all season, and while the rest of his game is not going to be up to snuff consistently to allow him to contend week in and week out, he has an outside chance on easier courses like this. If Matthews has his driver and putter working, he’ll have an outside chance of just being able to bomb-and-gouge this course. That’s more than enough to be interested at a number this long.
