Sanderson Farms Championship History
The Sanderson Farms Championship is a professional golf tournament as a part of the Professional Golfers Association Tour, with the action starting back in 1968 as the Magnolia State Classic, a name that it retained until 1985. During that time some great golfers took home the trophy at this event, including Payne Stewart, Fred Funk, Luke Donald, Bill Haas and Craig Stadler. The event's name was changed to the Deposit Guaranty Golf Classic, then the Southern Farm Bureau Classic, Viking Classic and True South Classic before settling on the Sanderson Farms Championship in 2013. The event has seen some memorable moments over the years, and golf fans know well that this event promises to be a riveting affair on an annual basis.

Only two other golfers have won this one more than once, with Brian Henninger and Fred Funk both winning two different times.
