The 2022-23 PGA Tour season kicked off earlier this month with the Fortinet Championship in Napa, Calif. After a week off for the Presidents Cup, the PGA Tour returns this weekend for the second event of the season — the Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, Miss.

Sam Burns, the reigning champion in the event, is the betting favorite to repeat. He’s by far the highest-ranked player in the field at No. 12 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

So, with the second event of the PGA Tour season underway, let’s check out the live cut line and see which big names don’t make it to the weekend.

The Sanderson Farms Championship has a long history on the PGA Tour. It might not be the most popular event on the calendar every year, but it’s actually been around since 1968. The tournament has been held at The Country Club of Jackson every year since 2014, with the winner normally finishing close to 20 under par.

So, let’s go through every Sanderson Farms Championship held at The Country Club of Jackson and check out where the cut line landed each year.

2019: -3
2018: -1
2017: -1

As is the case for most PGA Tour events, the top 65 players (plus ties) will survive the cut after 36 holes and be able to play the weekend.
