Sanderson Farms to sponsor MS PGA event

MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Sanderson Farms is the new sponsor for Mississippi's PGA Tour event at Annandale Golf Club in Madison. The tournament is scheduled for July 18-21.

The former True South Classic has been renamed the Sanderson Farms Championship, according to a statement from The Cirlot Agency. Sanderson Farms is based in Laurel.

Two years ago, Viking Range Corporation announced it was ending its sponsorship of the event after five years. Last year, four Mississippi specialty medical practices agreed to sponsor the event as the True South Classic.

Mississippi's tournament debuted on the PGA Tour in 1968.

A press conference is scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday where more details about the event are expected to be released.
