Sanderson helps keep PGA tourney in Mississippi

When it became clear Mississippi was about to lose its only tournament on the PGA Tour, Gov. Phil Bryant sought a savior.

“I needed a successful businessman who was passionate about golf and passionate about Mississippi,” Bryant said.

Turns out, he needed Joe Sanderson.

He got him. And we now have the Sanderson Farms Championship won Sunday by veteran pro Woody Austin.
