Sergio Garcia Wins 2020 Sanderson Farms Championship
Jackson, MS – Sergio Garcia won the 2020 Sanderson Farms Championship after shooting rounds in the 60s all four days and closing with a final round of 67. With the victory, Garcia became the most recent man to win in three different decades. Peter Malnati finished runner up at -18 and J.T. Poston finished solo third at -16. With his finish, Malnati secured himself a spot in next week’s event where he was previously an alternate.
Standing in the 72nd fairway tied for the lead with Malnati, who had posted the number over an hour earlier after his round of 63, Garcia struck an iron pure and dropped it 2 feet away from the cup. The tap-in birdie meant that Garcia would avoid a playoff and secure the victory. It was a reminder that Garcia is indeed one of the elite iron players in the world. The win is his first since the 2017 Masters Tournament, the 11th PGA Tour win of his career.
Several other players who had notable weeks included Henrik Norlander, who vaulted up the leaderboard with a final round 65 to finish T4; Keegan Bradley, who continued his good recent form and also finished T4; Cameron Davis, who started the final round tied for the lead with Poston and Garcia but faltered, shooting a disappointing round of even par to finish T6.
Next week, the PGA Tour will head to Las Vegas and TPC Summerlin for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Kevin Na is the defending champion there and will compete against a field that includes Patrick Cantlay, Bryson DeChambeau, Tony Finau, and Webb Simpson.
