“So many people have worked so hard, for so long, to improve the strength of our field, the golf course, and the charitable impact from this tournament that it is impossible to thank them all,” said Century Club Charities President Pat Busby. “With the fast greens and recent course improvements, the 2020 tournament should be a great warm up for this year’s Masters Tournament and a fast start for the 2020-21 FedExCup Season!”
“We sincerely appreciate the support of Sanderson Farms, our tournament sponsors, fans, volunteers, Pro-Am participants, tournament staff, vendors, players, caddies, the PGA TOUR, The Country Club of Jackson, and our Century Club Charities members, which allows us to continue making a positive impact on Mississippi charities,” Busby continued.
“Our priority remains to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved,” said Sanderson Farms Championship Executive Director Steve Jent. “We’ve worked closely with the City of Jackson and State of Mississippi officials throughout this process, and even without fans present onsite this year, we are going to show off a great field to the world through the Golf Channel, PGA TOUR/Live, and PGA TOUR Radio, SiriusXM Ch. 92.”
