Lyle Machinery Co. has joined the Sanderson Farms Championship family as sponsor of the tournament’s Monday Pro-Am. The Lyle Machinery Pro-Am will be held on Monday, October 2.
“It means a great deal to Wayne-Sanderson Farms to have Lyle Machinery join us in supporting the tournament and our charitable endeavors for Mississippi and our children in this capacity,” said Pic Billingsley, SVP and GM of Retail, Wayne-Sanderson Farms, Inc.
“Lyle Machinery is proud to support the 2023 Sanderson Farms Championship,” said Dan Lyle, President of Lyle Machinery Co. “Mostly, it’s about the support for Children’s of Mississippi and other Mississippi-based charities supported by Century Club Charities. Also, it’s about Mississippi based companies stepping up to support Mississippi.”
Pro-Ams give amateur golfers the opportunity to play alongside professional players and engage with some of the biggest names in the game. This year’s Lyle Machinery Pro-Am will be played in a walking, shamble format, and the Pro-Am teams will be comprised of three amateurs and one PGA TOUR professional.
“Pro-Ams are a unique aspect of the PGA TOUR sponsor experience, as they give amateurs the opportunity to play alongside some of the best professional golfers in the world,” said Steve Jent, Executive Director of the Sanderson Farms Championship. “We greatly appreciate the support from Lyle Machinery in that it allows us to create a first-class experience for everyone involved.”
Of the 28 Monday Pro-Am teams, only a limited few are still available for purchase. Those interested in purchasing a team and participating in the Pro-Am may contact John Mercer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2023 Sanderson Farms Championship is set for October 2 – 8 at The Country Club of Jackson in Jackson, Miss.
