Until Sergio Garcia a year ago, the previous six winners of the Sanderson Farms Championship had made the triumph the first of their PGA Tour careers. And it looked all the while like that would happen again on Sunday at the Country Club of Jackson (Miss.), with 54-hole leader Sahith Theegala, a 23-year-old tour rookie, and five of the six players within two shots of him, all looking for their maiden victories.

But that other guy, Sam Burns, who had, well, other ideas. With a closing five-under 67—that included four birdies in a five-hole stretch on the back nine—the 25-year-old who grabbed his win No. 1 at the Valspar Championship in May, got title No. 2, beating Nick Watney and Cameron Young by one shot.

"I think last year having those experiences around the lead, I think those were really important for me, I learned a lot," Burns said after the round. "Having that under my belt today, that experience was definitely helpful and coming down the stretch I felt a lot different than I have in the past and not necessarily more confident but just in a better state of mind and thinking process was much better. So, yeah, those experiences definitely helped."

With the victory, Burns claimed the first-place prize money payout of $1.26 million from an overall purse of $7 million. That lifted Burns’ career earnings to $8,790,758 in 87 tour starts.

Here’s the prize money payout for all the golfers who made the cut this week in Mississippi. Come back shortly after the tournament is over and we’ll update with individual names and prize money payouts.
