“We are honored to once again partner with the Sanderson Farms Championship as part of Mississippi’s largest professional sporting event,” said Bill Ray, CEO of BankPlus. “We feel the BankPlus Fan Pavilion is the perfect venue for spectators to get as close to the action as possible.”

“We are deeply appreciative to BankPlus for their ongoing support of the Championship,” said Steve Jent, executive director of the Sanderson Farms Championship. “The BankPlus Junior Pro-Am, recognizing Mississippi’s most outstanding junior golfers during the Mississippi Golf Association’s summer league, is the only Pro-Am of its kind on the PGA TOUR.
