Sanderson Farms Championship tips: Burns top bet to claim title

After racking up more profits at the Ryder Cup, Planet Sport tipster Jack Kelliher turns his expert eye towards the Sanderson Farms Championship.

The PGA Tour continues this weekend with the second event of the autumn and, despite lacking strength, this could be a good opportunity for the punter.

Planet Sport's Jack Kelliher shares four players, including a big outsider, who he expects to make a serious impact.

Jack is in great form after tipping a convincing USA win in the Ryder Cup and backing Dustin Johnson, who won all five matches, as one of the USA's top scorers. Check out his video selections for this week below.

Sam Burns

Starting off we have Sam Burns, who Kelliher tips as his headline selection to take advantage of a weak field at the Country Club of Jackson.

"He was third here in 2018, is a player that excels on the Bermuda grass putting surfaces and one of the top five putters in the field statistically and an elite level iron player.

"He is a player that can win many tournaments throughout his career. He has a great chance to take advantage of a relatively weak field and get another PGA Tour win under his belt."

Charley Hoffman

Up next, Kelliher tips Charley Hoffman who is 28/1 with Planet Sport Bet. The American loves low scoring events and that's what's in front of him this week.

"He has got much-improved form over the last six months. He loves low scoring affairs and is one of the best birdie makers on the whole of the PGA Tour. He has also gained strokes putting in six of his last eight events."

Seamus Power

Thirdly, Kelliher likes Seamus Power. His fellow countryman, Shane Lowry, was one of the bright spots in Team Europe's record-breaking defeat in the Ryder Cup and Kelliher is hoping Power will take some inspiration from Lowry.

"This player has two top 20 finishes at this tournament previously but is in better form now than he was then. He has three top 10s in his last five events, six top 20s in his last eight events and is gaining strokes with his flat stick. He is just too big a price and in too good form to ignore."

Adam Schenk

Lastly, the huge outsider that has Kelliher's seal of approval is Adam Schenk. This isn't just a shot in the dark; Schenk has a genuine chance in an event where the birdies need to flow.

"He has played this event four times before and has made the cut each and every time. He is also in the top 20 in my model for strokes gained putting over the last 50 rounds on tour on easy tracks and birdes made. This is an easy track this week; it is going to be a low scoring affair."
