Potter Falls in Final Round in Mississippi
Monday, October 9, 2023

    After rounds of 69-69-72 had Ted Potter in a tie for 51st place in the $8.2 million Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, Mississippi, Ted went from 6 under par back to even with a final-round 78 and destroyed his chance for a big payday. As it was, he dropped into a tie for 75th, and had to settle for a meager check of $15,908.

    Ted made just two birdies in the finale, along with five bogeys and a disastrous triple bogey seven on the 16th hole. He is not entered in this week's $8.4 million Shriners Childrens Open in Las Vegas. 

    The Sanderson ended in a five-way playoff at 18 under par, as the complexion changed hole by hole on the final nine. Luke List birdied the first playoff hole to defeat Ben Griffin, Henrik Norlander, Scott Stallings and Ludwig Abert. List collected $1,476,000, while the defeated four each cashed in for $549,000. A group of three banked $276,750 each for their tie for sixth.

    Tyson Alexander is the lone Gator who will be playing in the Shriners, and LPGA mainstay Lexi Thompson has received a sponsor's exemption.
