Sanderson Farms Championship Round 1 & 2 Recap

PGA Tour Odds

Through two rounds it’s Ben Griffin who leads the way. The American leads by two strokes, but this year’s tournament is wide open with fourteen players teeing off today within five shots off the lead.

Griffin leads the way, but a dramatic day lies in store.

Ben Griffin shot to the top of the Sanderson Farms Championship leaderboard with a stunning second round 63. Griffin’s 63 included a back nine that saw him pick up six shots through his final eight holes. 2023 has been a tough year for the American who has yet to post a single top ten finish. His best finish came in the 2023 Arnold Palmer where he finished fourteenth – he has set himself up nicely to challenge over the weekend.

Until Griffin’s late birdie blitz it looked like Henrik Norlander would end the day in the lead. An opening round 65 looked like it would be equaled, but a bogey on the 16th saw him tumble out of the lead and sit two strokes off the pace.

Another player to make a significant move was Harrison Endycott. Through his first 35 holes the Australian was yet to drop a shot, but a poor tee shot on the eighteenth would yield his first bogey and he is another who will start two off the lead.

Sanderson Farms Championship Round 3 Betting Preview.

With winning scores often reaching totals as low as -20, one thing that can be guaranteed today is birdies.

With his two stroke lead it isn’t surprising to see that Ben Griffin is the current favorite for victory.

Griffin has never won on Tour with his best performance coming in the 2022 Bermuda Championship, where he finished third. His stunning 63 yesterday has now seen the American go 27 holes without recording a bogey. During that span he has posted twelve birdies. If he keeps up this form, he will be tough to stop.

Hoping to throw down a challenge to Griffin is Luke List. List is one of four players who will start today within two strokes of the lead. List has previously finished second in this event and is a former PGA Tour winner. He certainly has the experience to compete.

Henrik Norlander rounds out the top three in the betting. Ranked 491 in the world, few would have expected the Swede to be challenging this weekend. This is just the second time he has made the cut in his last five starts and he will be hoping to rediscover the form that saw him climb into the world’s top 100.

The wildcard of the weekend is Ludvig Aberg. Aberg has enjoyed a meteoric rise up the world rankings since turning pro three months ago. Already a winner on the DP World Tour, Aberg performed well at last week’s Ryder Cup and could be today’s value angle despite him starting six shots off the pace.
