The Sanderson Farms Championship will have three of the top-25 golfers in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings tee it up this week at Country Club of Jackson in Jackson, Mississippi.
Will Zalatoris (9), J.B. Holmes (15) and Scottie Scheffler (22) front the 144-man field. Louis Oosthuizen withdrew Monday. Below, we look at the 2020 Sanderson Farms Championship betting odds, and make our PGA Tour picks and best bets to win.
Jackson has hosted this event each year since the fall of 2014. Each of the last six champions collected their first career PGA Tour win at this event, so it’s a good week to bet long shots in a weak field and a course favorable for scoring.

Sungjae Im (+1600)
Im was the runner-up in this event last year, losing in a playoff to Sebastian Munoz after finishing 18under through 72 holes. He won his first PGA Tour event just a few months later in a much stronger field at The Honda Classic and followed it up with a third-place finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
He finished 11th at the Tour Championship and 22nd at the U.S. Open. He has the second-best odds to win this week and is one of the top players in attendance with a Golfweek ranking of 26th.

Kristoffer Ventura (+8000)
Ventura is coming off a disappointing T-52 finish in a weaker field at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship last week, but he has now made four straight cuts on the PGA Tour. He tied for seventh at the Safeway Open for his best result on the main circuit after winning twice on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2019.
He’ll make his debut at this event and will be able to lean on a strong putter after ranking fourth on the PGA Tour in the 2019-20 season in Strokes Gained: Putting through 48 rounds.
Brandt Snedeker (+12500)
Snedeker has missed three straight cuts and has fallen all the way to 194th in the Golfweek rankings. The nine-time PGA Tour winner will play this event for just the second time but the second year in a row after a T-45 finish last year.
He gained over 0.90 strokes per round on the field both around-the-green and with the putter last year, according to Data Golf, and can get as hot as anyone. Each of the six champions at Country Club of Jackson ranked in the top 10 of that week’s field in SG: Putting.
