Best of the rest tee off this week in PGA TOUR and Web.com events at Jack Nicklaus-designed Annandale and Nicklaus GC at LionsGate

Across the pond from this week’s Open Championship at Muirfield, two events tee off at Jack Nicklaus-designed courses in the U.S. The PGA TOUR’s Sanderson Farms Championship at Annandale Golf Club in Madison, Miss., and the Web.com Tour’s Midwest Classic at the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate outside of Kansas City, Kan., will host a mix of 283 veterans and some of the game’s future stars.
The newly sponsored Sanderson Farms Championship, formerly the True South Classic in 2012 and Viking Classic the previous four years, coincides with the British Open for the first time in its 45-year history. This is the 20th consecutive year Annandale has served as host to the event, and the roster of past winners includes former World No. 1 Luke Donald; 2011 FedEx Cup Champion Bill Haas; and the late Payne Stewart, an 11-time PGA TOUR winner and three-time major champion. Other TOUR stars in the field include 1997 PGA Champion Davis Love III, 2008 Masters winner Trevor Immelman, 2011 Honda Classic winner Rory Sabbatini, and Japanese sensation Ryo Ishikawa. The competitors are vying for a $3 million purse with a $540,000 winner’s share.
