Will Zalatoris is the top player in the field at No. 17 in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings, and he’s one of few players in the field teeing it up in a second full-field event for the 2021-22 FedExCup season.

Country Club of Jackson measures 7,461 yards and plays to a par of 72. It’s hosting the Sanderson Farms Championship for the eighth time. Garcia won by one stroke at minus-19 last year. The worst winning score since 2014 was Nick Taylor’s 16-under total in 2014.

2021 Sanderson Farms Championship: Fantasy Golf Top 20

Odds provided by Tipico Sportsbook; access USA TODAY Sports’ betting odds for a full list. Odds last updated Tuesday at 9:48 a.m. ET.

20. Keith Mitchell (+8000)

Missed the cut in nine of 20 events in 2021 thus far but had two top-10 finishes in his final four events of the 2020-21 season while advancing to the second-to-last event in the FedExCup Playoffs.

19. Mackenzie Hughes (+7000)

Back at CC of Jackson for the first time since a T-26 finish in 2016, when he averaged 1.49 Strokes Gained: Putting per round. He remains one of the best putters on Tour and it’s often the difference here.

18. Joel Dahmen (+8000)

Claimed his first PGA Tour win at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship in late March but had just one other top-10 finish the remainder of the season. His strong play off the tee is well suited to the venue.

17. Taylor Pendrith (+6000)

Led all golfers with 1.53 SG: Off-the-Tee last season but through just 10 measured rounds. Four-time runner-up on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2020.

16. Matthias Schwab (+7000)

Seven professional top-10 finishes this year on the KFT and European Tour but is playing his first non-major PGA Tour event since missing the cut at last year’s Sanderson Farms Championship. Gained strokes off the tee at this event but was awful on the greens.

15. Kevin Streelman (+4000)

Sixteen rounds played at Country Club of Jackson with an average of 0.60 strokes per round gained on the field. Tied for fourth in 2019 with 1.82 SG: Putting per round and recently tied for seventh at the Wyndham Championship for his third top-10 finish of 2021.

14. Harold Varner III (+4000)

Averaged 0.88 SG: Tee-to-Green and 0.52 SG: Approach per round across 79 measured rounds last season. Has four top-20 finishes across his last five events.

13. Carlos Ortiz (+5000)

A win and a top-10 finish last fall before just one top-10 showing through 22 events thus far in 2021. Has gained 1.79 strokes per round on the field across 10 career rounds at CC of Jackson, including a T-4 finish in 2019.

12. Cameron Davis (+4000)

Claimed his first PGA Tour victory at a par 72 venue for the Rocket Mortgage Classic in July. CC of Jackson incorporates plenty of familiar Donald Ross design features.

11. Seamus Power (+4000)

Playing just his third event since claiming his first PGA Tour win at the Barbasol Championship in mid-July. He has 14 rounds played at this venue with an average of 0.44 total strokes gained on the field per round.

10. Cameron Tringale (+3000)

Made the cut here each of the last four years with a top finish of T-16 in 2019. Tied for 22nd at the Fortinet Championship and hasn’t missed a cut since late June.

9. Matthew Wolff (+5000)

Finished fourth in driving distance for the 2020-21 season across just 60 rounds played. Won’t be overly punished for his occasional wayward tee shots.

8. Sebastian Munoz (+5000)

Won here in 2019 with 0.94 SG: Off-the-Tee and 1.56 SG: Putting per round and tied for 23rd last year. Tied for fourth at the Olympics and then advanced to the BMW Championship but missed the cut at the Fortinet Championship.

7. Keegan Bradley (+4000)

Tied for fourth last year in his debut at this event with 0.78 SG: Off-the-Tee per round. His 0.91 SG: Approach per round last season is the best in this week’s field.

6. Sergio Garcia (+2000)

Trailed only Pendrith, Bryson DeChambeau and Jon Rahm in SG: Off-the-Tee per round last season but lost 0.34 strokes per round with the putter. He’s at risk of a letdown off of Europe’s Ryder Cup loss, but he has had success on these greens.

5. Will Zalatoris (+2000)

The 2021 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year will try again for his first win early in the 2021-22 season off of a T-11 finish at the Fortinet Championship. He missed the cut last year but averaged 1.02 SG: Off-the-Tee per round over 36 holes.

4. Si Woo Kim (+4000)

Has lost 0.74 strokes per round across 10 rounds at Country Club of Jackson but typically competes well at longer venues. Has a victory, a runner-up finish and two other top-10s in 2021, and opened the new season with a T-11 at the Fortinet Championship.

3. Corey Conners (+2000)

Finished alone in second in 2018 and tied for 17th last year with a missed cut in 2019. He was among the leaders in SG: Off-the-Tee in all three appearances.

2. Sungjae Im (+2000)

The 2019 runner-up tied for 28th last year with 1.11 SG: Putting and 0.79 SG: Off-the-Tee per round. His best result of 2021 thus far was a third-place finish at the BMW Championship a month ago.

1. Sam Burns (+1500)

Fourteen careers rounds played at CC of Jackson with an average of 0.36 strokes gained per round. Missed the cut last year but averaged 0.80 SG: Off-the-Tee per round across 36 holes and has enjoyed a breakout 2021.
