The Sanderson Farms Championship is the PGA Tour's Jackson, Mississippi-area event, with the tournament having been played at different points in the schedule though now it's currently played in the fall portion of the PGA Tour schedule.

The event, which was first played in 1968 as an opposite-field event, originally started out as the Magnolia Classic played opposite Colonial National Invitation tournament. Ultimately, the event was played for nearly 35 years opposite the Masters Tournament.

However, starting in 2019, the tournament went away from being an opposite-field event and stands on its own.
