Upgraded for the 2019-'20 PGA Tour season, the Sanderson Farms Championship has a standalone date for the first time in its history. That means this week's tournament comes with all of the benefits of a standard, regular-season tour event. The overall purse will be $6.6 million with a $1,188,000 payday for the winner, which is a 50-percent increase from 2018.

Among those competing at the Country Club of Jackson in Mississippi will be Cameron Champ, the defending champion. Champ was one of five rookies to advance to the BMW Championship last season and will be a member of a featured group at SFC along with Ryan Armour and Bill Haas. Each member of the trio has won at Sanderson Farms with Armour and Haas's victories coming in 2017 and 2010, respectively.
