***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

This tournament, that started in 1968, is for the first time ever not an opposite field event on the PGA Tour. It's been played opposite The Masters, The British Open, The Ryder Cup, The President's Cup, The Tour Championship and what is now the WGC Mexico.

FedEX Cup Points: the full 500
A win DOES get you into the 2020 Masters
Purse: $6,600,000 an increase of 50% from last year's $4,400,000. Winner gets $1,180,000.
Course: Country Club of Jackson a par 72 of 7421 yards
Defending Champ: Cameron Champ (winning in his second start as a member of the PGA Tour)

Field: https://www.pgatour.com/tournaments/sanderson-farms-championship/field.html

In the field (at press time)
last week's winner and world #50 Joaquin Niemann
Byeong Hun An at #48 is the highest ranked player here
Sungjae Im is #54 and the only player from last year's Tour Championship in the field
17 year old Akshay Bhatia makes his pro debut
Jimmy Walker
Zach Johnson
Jason Dufner

OWGR
Despite being a full field event it looks to be a tour minimum 24 points to the winner.

    i usually prefer sanderson farm chicken products from the store ... i like em when they're natural ...

    was actually hoping this would've been later in the fall since i can drive over in 2 1/2 hours ... don't have much desire to go out to jackson in 95 degree heat, however ...

    OWGR SoF is 106 and first place points are 26.
    That puts it ahead of the John Deere Classic and RSM Classic from 2018-19.
    Last year's totals were 25/24 as an opposite field event.

    Scheffler and Shelton will be in the top 5, much like last week.
    Look out for Lanto Griffin, been playing great for the last couple of weeks through KF Finals

    I've been too busy lately to watch golf or anything else, for that matter. I'll give this tournament a look see. I haven't seen Akshay play yet; looking forward to seeing his game.

    Easy pass for this one, top player in the field world ranking 48. If this was a Euro Tour event, it would be getting an absolutely bashing for having a weak field.

    That player, Byeong Hun An, is the 2015 BMW PGA Champion. Why he's here instead of London, I have no idea.
    If it were a European Tour event, it's SoF of 106 would rank it 11th out of 27 events played this year that aren't shared with the PGA Tour.

    Nieman and Grillo should take advantage of the weak field.

    And An opens 66-66

    Akshay Bhatia opens his pro career with 70-74 and a missed cut.
    He'll be back next week at the Safeway Open.

    Exactly. There are going to be guys missing by 1 stroke regardless of the # who make the cut.
    There's no reason that 80 players, over half the field, should be making the cut in any tournament.
    With that said it's 90+ degrees and humid in Jackson since the tournament was moved up a month this year. I can understand why folks stayed away esp with no household names in the field.

    This final round is pretty entertaining, at least the last hour. Im looking stronnnng, it’s just been a matter of time. He’s in the fairway on 18 as I write this.

    Canadian glad to see Hearn T25, but sad all the others MC I think.

    Sebastian Munoz will move up to near the top 100 with his first PGA Tour win.

    As far as I can tell, this is the first time South American golfers have won in consecutive weeks on the PGA Tour.

    This week's playoff ends the 38 weeks without a playoff streak that dated back to the 2019 RSM Classic last November.

    Even better, on both occasions there would have been a MDF cut on Saurday night.
