Big Names Coming to Pro-Am

Posted: Updated:

The Sanderson Farms Championship is bringing big names to the Trustmark
Wealth Management Pro-Am that will be held on July 17th.

Individuals that
will be playing in the Pro-Am include: New Orleans Saints Coach, Sean
Peyton; New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President and General Manager,
Mickey Loomis; Ole Miss Head Football Coach, Hugh Freeze; and former
NFL star and Mississippi native, Archie Manning.

Additionally, a few of the Saints Cheerleaders, the Saintsations, will be in
attendance.

Pro-Ams give amateur golfers, more so than any other sport, the opportunity to
play with professional players. By incorporating local celebrities into the
tournament, Mississippi golf enthusiasts get a chance to play like a pro.

The Friends of Children's Hospital Pro-Am will be held on Monday, July 15th,
followed by the BankPlus Friends of Children's Golf Junior Pro-Am on
Tuesday, July 16th, and the Trustmark Wealth Management Pro-Am on
Wednesday, July 17th.

The Monday and Tuesday Pro-Ams are open to the public with free admission.
Admission for the Wednesday Pro-Am will require the purchase of a
tournament ticket. You can purchase tickets at
www.sandersonfarmschampionship.com or call 601-898-4653. You may also
purchase onsite at the Admissions tent at main entrance. Children 15 and under
are admitted free when accompanied by a ticketed adult.
