The tournament director, Steve Jent, says, "This deal brings stability for the event and the City of Jackson."
Mayor Tony Yarber released this statement about the decision:
“We’re excited about Sanderson Farms’ decision to remain the title sponsor of the PGA event in Mississippi’s capital city through 2026. The Sanderson Farms PGA Championship is a premiere tournament drawing thousands to Jackson, where they patronize retail shops, restaurants and hotels. The tournament helps boost our economy and place us on a national stage, showing that our great city is a venue to host world-class events.”
