Mississippi's annual PGA Tour stop begins Thursday at Annandale in Madison. The True South Classic is held opposite the Open Championship again, but there will be plenty of young rising stars in the field, including former Rebel All-American and local product Jonathan Randolph.
This is the third year in a row Randolph will tee it up in this event after receiving a sponsor's exemption. He made the cut last year.
Randolph met with local media Tuesday after playing in the Junior Pro Am and talked about the competition.
"You know, I think it's a really solid field, not a whole lot of names
that jump off the page at a lot of people but if you follow golf, you
know everybody here. The guy who wins this tournament usually goes on
and he's a great star. Billy Haas won the FedEx Cup a couple
of years after he won this one. Some people think its diamonds in the
rough, but there are a whole lot more diamonds out here than there is
rough," Randolph stated.
Randolph, who set his name in the record books at Ole Miss, will tee off at 8:50 a.m. Thursday from the 10th tee. He plays with veterans Parker McLachlin and Tom Byrum.
