Sanderson Farms, change the leading couple

A spectacular second lap on the course of the Country Club of Jackson, Mississippi, completely upset the leaderboard of the Sanderson Farms Championships 2022. The round just ended was in fact the scene of great comebacks and dizzying falls.

Sanderson Farms, results

After 36 holes in the lead are the Belgian Thomas Detry and the Canadian Mackenzie Hughes. If the first hit the second consecutive lap in 67 strokes, the second was the author of one of the aforementioned comebacks, climbing 42 positions with a lap in 63, by far the best of the day.

Both are at a score of -10, achieved by Detry with six birdies (and one bogey), against the incredible nine birdies centered by the North American. Third place for the Austrian Sepp Straka, with a score of -9. He too built up most of his loot on this second day in which, thanks to eight birdies and two bogeys, he lowered his score by 6 strokes.

Three players share fourth place: South African Garrick Higgo and two Americans Mark Hubbard and Scott Stallings. For them the scoreboard reads -8. Davis Riley, leader after the first 18 holes, drops 6 positions. Lap decidedly less brilliant than the previous one for him today, who fouled his card with three bogeys against four birdies, bringing his score to -7.

Far more violent was the descent of the other player who was driving after the first lap. Will Gordon in fact lost 59 positions with a disastrous 4-stroke lap over PAR, saving the cut pass by a single shot. He was echoed by Brandon Matthews, third until yesterday and today sixtieth at -2 as his compatriot Gordon.

Among the great climbs, however, we point out that of Emiliano Grillo, able to climb to tenth position from the 88a he occupied yesterday. The Sanderson Farms Championship is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour that is played annually in Mississippi.

He moved to the Country Club of Jackson in Jackson in the fall of 2014, early in the 2015 season. The tournament has been a part of the PGA Tour schedule since 1968 and has raised more than $8.1 million for state charities.

Originally played at the Hattiesburg Country Club in Hattiesburg, the event was moved in 1994 to the Annandale Golf Club in Madison, which it hosted in 2013. Since 2013, the title sponsor of the tournament has been Sanderson Farms, a poultry corporation based in Laurel, Mississippi.

The tournament's host organization, Century Club Charities, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, tax-exempt organization whose mission is to promote the game of golf for charity.
