JACKSON, Mississippi (WLBT) – The first round of the 2021 Sanderson Farms Championship is underway at the Jackson Country Club.

Record crowds are expected this year as fans return to the PGA Tour for the first time after the pandemic.

The last four players after qualifying for Monday’s Sanderson Farms Championship are Quade Cummins, Grant Hirschman, Kyle Reifers and Sam Saunders.

The additions complete a full field of 144 players, including major winners Gary Woodland, 12-time PGA TOUR winner Zach Johnson, Jimmy Walker and Lucas Glover. They will join reigning 2021 champion and 2017 Masters champion Sergio Garcia.

The players join former tournament champions Sebastián Muñoz, Ryan Armor, Cody Gribble, Peter Malnati, Nick Taylor, Scott Stallings, Chris Kirk and Bill Haas.

2012 FedExCup champion Brandt Snedeker, 2017 player champion Si Woo Kim and South Korean golfer Sungjae Im are also in the final squad.

“We couldn’t be more excited about the variety and caliber of the players in our third year only as a standalone event,” said Steve Jent, executive director of the Sanderson Farms Championship. “We are ready to show this incredible field to the world.”
