Sanderson Farms Championship hires new tournament director, Steve Jent

Steve Jent_ HeadshotCentury Club Charities, host organization for the Sanderson Farms Championship, selected Steve Jent to lead the event as the new Tournament Director. The hire comes on the heels of Sanderson Farms announcing its three-year extension through the 2016-17 PGA TOUR FedExCup season, and the move of the event from the July date it has held the past three years back to the fall during which the event was played from 1999-2010.

“We are thrilled to have Steve Jent lead us into the future with our new title sponsor, Sanderson Farms,” said Century Club Charities Board President John Lang. “Steve’s success in driving significant revenue increases at the Wyndham Championship and his wealth of knowledge from working with a new title sponsor, and helping to grow the Wyndham Championship into the successful event it is today, made him an ideal candidate for our new Tournament Director.”
