The PGA Tour heads to Fort Worth, Texas, for the 2023 Charles Schwab Challenge hosted by Colonial Country Club. After an exciting PGA Championship, several players who were in contention at Oak Hill will be in the field this week at Colonial, including Scottie Scheffler and Viktor Hovland.
Scheffler opened Monday morning with the shortest odds to win at Colonial at +550, and his odds have since shortened to +450 at bet365. The Dallas native enters with 14 consecutive top-12 finishes in PGA Tour events after another strong showing this past weekend at PGA Championship. Scheffler is looking to avenge a playoff loss in this event last year to his close friend, Sam Burns.
Burns opened with the eighth-shortest odds to defend his title this week at +2400 on bet365. The last time the former LSU Tiger visited the Lone Star State, he left with hardware when he won the final WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play after a perfect 7-0 week in Austin. Burns is looking for some momentum after consecutive missed cuts at the Wells Fargo Championship and the PGA Championship.
Tony Finau opened with the second-shortest odds to win the Charles Schwab Challenge at +1300 on bet365. He won for the second time this season on Tour at the end of April at the Mexico Open at Vidanta when he outdueled Jon Rahm.
Another Dallas native and favorite son, Jordan Spieth, is tied with Finau for the second-shortest odds at +1300. Spieth missed the AT&T Byron Nelson in the greater Dallas area two weeks ago due to a wrist injury, but he played last week at the PGA Championship and finished in a tie for 29th.
Viktor Hovland, fresh off of a tie for second at the PGA Championship, has the fourth-shortest odds to win at Colonial at open at +1700. The Norwegian has made every cut on Tour this year and has six top-10 finishes. The former Oklahoma State Cowboy has finished T23 (2020) and T21 (2022) in two prior starts at the Charles Schwab Challenge.
Collin Morikawa is the final player with opening odds shorter than 20-1 with a price of +1900 at bet365. The California product has a solo second finish at Colonial from 2020 in addition to a T14 (2021) and a T40 (2022) in three starts at the Charles Schwab Challenge.
Historic Colonial Country Club is a 7,209-yard par-70 designed by John Bredemus and Perry Maxwell in 1936.
This will be the 78th time the PGA Tour has visited Colonial Country Club, making it the longest-running non-major PGA Tour event to be contested on the same golf course.
PGA Tour legend Ben Hogan won four of the first seven editions of the Charles Schwab Challenge (while finishing in the top four in all seven of those tournaments), and since then, Colonial has been nicknamed Hogan’s Alley.
The course is relatively short and narrow by PGA Tour standards with tree-lined fairways and bunkers guarding most greens.
Upon conclusion of the event this upcoming weekend, the course will undergo a $20 million renovation led by Gil Hanse.
Burns, Justin Rose, Spieth, Kevin Kisner and Chris Kirk are all past champions in the field for this week’s Charles Schwab Challenge.
