THE OVERVIEW

Country Club of Jackson, Jackson, Mississippi  - The stateside PGA event this week is going to Jackson, Mississippi for the Sanderson Farms Championship at the Country Club of Jackson.

This course this week is a 7,421-yard, par 72, John Fought design and features bermuda grass throughout and small, tricky green complexes.

Putting should be a major key to winning this week and since a number of past winners won for the first time at the Sanderson, don't be afraid to play pros that might otherwise be considered unproven.

Update: Weather is supposed to be a factor this week. Wind and rain. Keep an eye on players' tee times and select accordingly.

GOLF PICKS

THE 'FORE' SOMES

'FORE' SOMES are chosen by selecting one player from a "low tier" betting pool (30:1 or better), two players from a "mid tier" (30:1 - 75:1), and a final player from a "high tier" (75:1 & up).  

KEITH'S 'FORE' SOME 

Sung Jae Im  (20:1).  No brainer here. This kid is going to win this year. This is his first lighter field. He has a wonderful chance. However, he has just flown over from South Korea however. I’m hoping the travel won’t affect him.

Cameron Davis  (33:1)  &  Jim Knous  (66:1).  There’s a lot of cool veteran names in this range such as Martin Laird, Johnson Wagner, Rory Sabbatini, etc. However, I’m going to take a chance on some younger, lesser known names.

Cameron Davis, the 23-year-old Aussie pro, just finished T17 at the Safeway Open a few weeks ago and finished T3 at the Web.com Tour Championship before that, and T39 back in July at The Open Championship at Carnoustie. He won on the Web tour in nashville last year and won in a strong field at the Emirates Australian Open. A young player that can really score. Gains a stroke and a half tee to green.

Jim Knous is a 28-year-old pro from Colorado. Just finished T10 at the Safeway. Finished T41 in his only PGA event last year, The Shriners in Las Vegas. Gains 1.2 strokes putting. Graduate of the Colorado School of Mines. Crazy smart. Two top five finishes on the Web.com Tour. Has good game. I’m gonna take a chance on him.

Tyler Duncan  (100:1).  I like Tyler Duncan. Had a handful of good finishes last year. Made the cut but finished near the bottom of the field at the Safeway Open. Could really pop in a lighter field. Totally worth 100:1.
