Previewing the Charles Schwab Challenge

 

This week, the PGA Tour makes its return to the historic Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. Rory McIlroy will headline a field that features 16 of the top-20 ranked players in the world. For you Tiger fans — No Tiger this week but his yacht is rumored to be en route to the Carolina’s for next week’s event.

It’s been nearly three months since golf — and the sports world — came to an abrupt halt. So this week, we’ll see who’s feeling the rust vs who’s not. Phil (150/1), Rory (10/1), Rickie (35/1), DJ (30/1), and Wolff (150/1) each enter the week having at least one competitive round under their belt during the time off.

 

Notable pairings: The PGA Tour didn’t hold back this week when it came to exciting pairings. Here is a look at some of the notables:
  • Top 3 players in the world: Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, and Brooks Koepka
  • Spring break squad: Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, and Rickie Fowler
  • Keep an eye out for: Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose
