Seven former event winners and a quintet of major tournament champions will be among the 130 golfers in the field this week when the PGA Tour heads to the Magnolia State for the Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, Miss.The event, which is held at at Country Club of Jackson, is the fourth tournament in the PGA Tours wraparound schedule that bridges two years with 43 events as part of the 2016-17 PGA Tour Season.Last year, Peter Malnati shot a final round 5-under-par 67 to rally past a crowded leaderboard, finish at 18-under and win his first PGA Tour event while beating William McGirt and David Toms by one stroke. He was one shot behind going into the final round, but closed with five birdies over his last 12 holes.The rain-soaked tournament was forced to complete play on Monday. This year, the forecast is for warm and dry weather, which will create a different test and, likely, lower scores. Eleven of the past 15 Sanderson Farms Championships have been decided by either one stroke or in a playoff.The event (formerly called the Viking Classic, the True South Classic and the Southern Farm Bureau Classic, et al.) moved to the Country Club of Jackson in 2014 after being contested for 19 years at Annandale Country Club in Madison, Miss.In his win in 2015, Malnati blitzed the rain-softened putting surfaces by making the most feet of putts in any Tour event last season (495 feet, 7 inches over the four days) and the most putts of more than 10 feet in any tournament in 2015-16 (16). He outperformed the rest of the Sanderson Farms Championship field by plus-2.943 strokes per round.Ive heard that the rough will be thicker and longer this year and if the fairways are firm that will create a fun challenge, Malnati said. Im looking forward to that. This course has some of the best greens we putt on Tour.Patton Kizzire, who is also in the field, finished fourth here last year and is familiar with the course from his days playing at Auburn.Im excited about the weather this week, Kizzire said. Last year the weather was rough, but the course handled it well. The course is fun to play. Itll be a little different year, but I like the Country Club of Jackson.Kizzire ended up playing in three of the four majors, making the cut at the British Open and PGA Championship. He made the cut in 20 of his 27 events last season.You have to understand its a long year and keep doing you and see if you can do you better than anyone else, Kizzire said. If you play your own game and youre not really worrying about what everyone else is doing, you can stay patient.Other previous Sanderson Farms Championship winners in this years field are Nick Taylor (2014), Scott Stallings (2012), Chris Kirk (2011), Will MacKenzie (2008), D.J. Trahan (2006) and Heath Slocum (2005).The fields major championship winners are Lucas Glover (2009 U.S. Open), Geoff Ogilvy (2006 U.S. Open), David Toms (2001 PGA Championship), Retief Goosen (2001, 2004 U.S. Open) and Angel Cabrera (2007 U.S. Open, 2009 Masters).There are also five players in the field that are already in the top 30 in this years FedExCup standings: Kizzire (3), Cody Gribble (17), Chris Kirk (17), Mackenzie Hughes (28) and Whee Kim (28).

NEW YORK -- After a slow start to their 10-game homestand, the New York Yankees know they need a quick turnaround.Otherwise, they might end up rare sellers at the Aug. 1 trade deadline.Before the biggest Yankee Stadium crowd this year, CC Sabathia allowed five or more runs for the fifth straight start, and New York dropped its second straight to the Boston Red Sox, 5-2 on Saturday.The Yankees (44-46) are under .500 after the All-Star break for the first time since 1995. After opening 0-2 on this homestand, they head into their series finale vs. the Red Sox on Sunday night with the trajectory of their season possibly hanging in the balance.Its got to turn around tomorrow, manager Joe Girardi said. This is probably as important (a) game that weve had in July in a long time, tomorrow.Sabathia (5-7) allowed five runs, four earned, in 5 1/3 innings. Boston chipped away at the big lefty by reaching base mostly on soft, well-placed contact and a couple of New York errors until a home run in the sixth by Sandy Leon.I felt good, Sabathia said. Just the result is not coming.Sabathias tough stretch follows a resurgent start to the season. The 35-year-old has allowed 27 runs in his past five starts after yielding just 18 over his first 11.Sabathia gave up nine hits Saturday, including two slow rollers beyond the range of charging third baseman Chase Headley and a soft RBI single by Leon in the fourth.I have to stay focused and know that those plays can turn around, Sabathia said. They arent right now, and thats just been whats killing me so far.Leon drove in four runs and Eduardo Rodriguez again dominated the Yankees in his return from Triple-A while Boston won its season-high sixth straight.Leon hit his second homer this season and the third of his career -- a three-run shot for a 5-1 lead. The catcher has 13 RBI in 20 games this season after compiling eight in 75 career games before that. Hes hitting .458 through 59 at-bats this season.He looks different now, Rodriguez said. He hits the ball everywhere.Leon also helped his Venezuelan countryman hold New York to a run and four hits over seven innings after the Red Sox recalled the left-hander ffrom the minors Friday.dddddddddddd Rodriguez (2-3) improved to 4-1 with a 2.01 ERA against Bostons archrival.Frustrating, Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner said. Offensively we werent able to get a whole lot going against Rodriguez today.Koji Uehara closed for his sixth save.Leons hot hitting has been timely for Boston, which has had catchers Blake Swihart, Christian Vazquez and Ryan Hanigan on the disabled list this season. The 27-year-old went into the All-Star break batting .455 (25 for 55), the highest first-half average ever in the majors, with a minimum of 50 at-bats.Rodriguez opened the season on the disabled list with a knee injury, then posted an 8.59 ERA in six starts before being demoted to Triple-A Pawtucket. Boston believed Rodriguez was tipping his pitches and had him adjust his delivery during two starts in the minors.Rodriguez threw 97 pitches Saturday, working quickly against New Yorks veteran-heavy lineup.Gardner ended a stretch of 180 homerless at-bats when he lined a solo shot into the Yankees bullpen in the third. It was his first homer since May 18 and sixth of the season.I definitely need to drive the ball a little bit better on a more consistent basis here in the second half, Gardner said.Headley hit a solo homer in the eighth for the Yankees against Matt Barnes.A-ROD IN LINEUPAlex Rodriguez is expected to start for the third straight game Sunday night when the Yankees face left-hander David Price. Its been a rare chance at consistent playing time lately for the 40-year-old, who is batting .218 with eight homers in 193 at-bats this season. Rodriguez was 0 for 3 with a walk Saturday and is 1 for 7 in the series.UP NEXTPrice (9-6, 4.34 ERA) pitches for Boston at Yankee Stadium following three straight games with exactly 10 strikeouts and one walk. He leads the AL with 140 strikeouts, most by a Red Sox left-hander before the All-Star break. Masahiro Tanaka (6-2, 3.23) is coming off six days of rest after allowing a season-high seven runs (three earned) in an 11-7 win against Cleveland. ' ' '
