A field of 144 players will compete for a $7 million purse, $1,322,200 million of that to the winner.

Could it be Sam Burns again, the 2021 Champion who has won four times in just over a year, that claims the top spot?

“We’re excited about our potential field in just our fourth year as a stand-alone event,” said executive director Steve Jent. “When you combine our position as the second event of the new FedExCup season, along with the golf course’s reputation, especially the greens, and the hospitality the players’ experience, there’s now a buzz that this is an event players need to add to their schedule.”

Last year’s event helped raise $1,805,000 in charitable impact, benefiting Children’s of Mississippi and over 60 other Mississippi charities. Since 1968, Century Club Charities has raised over $21 million to philanthropic organizations in Mississippi.
