MADISON, Miss. (AP) -- Former tournament winner Chris Kirk and 20-time PGA Tour winner Davis Love III highlight this week's field at the Sanderson Farms Classic at Annandale Golf Club.
The four-day tournament -- which is played at the same time as the British Open -- begins on Thursday morning at the 7,202-yard course that has hosted the event since 1994.
Because most of the game's biggest stars are competing in the British Open, Annandale gives others a more realistic shot at winning on the PGA Tour. Six former tournament winners are in this year's field, including the 28-year-old Kirk who won in 2011.
Love III, 49, has been in the top 100 on the PGA money list for 27 straight years. That streak is in danger -- he is currently 158th.
