Need to Know

Colonial Country Club has hosted this event since 1946, so there aren’t going to be many surprises for the field of 122 golfers. The course plays at 7,209 yards and has always been a par-70, making it average in terms of length when compared to other layouts on the PGA Tour. The Charles Schwab Challenge has gone the longest of any tournament with a cut to not have a first-time winner. That doesn’t bode well for notables Cameron Champ, Martin Kaymer and Francesco Molinari, who are all making their debuts at Colonial. The par-4 fifth has been the most difficult hole in every playing since 2005 and is part of what’s called the “Horrible Horseshoe.” Scoring has cooperated over the years with the field averaging 69.83 last year.

Charles Schwab Challenge Matchup Picks

Jordan Spieth +105 vs. Xander Schauffele

After carding three sub-70 rounds and going 11-under at the Byron Nelson, Spieth said he “was” in a slump. He took those good feelings to Bethpage last week, wielded the putter, and grabbed a T3 for his first top-10 of the season. In fact, it was the first time he placed among the top-20 in his 13 starts. And now he returns to a layout that’s been good to him with a win and two runner-up showings in six starts. This isn’t a knock on the X-man, rather a play on a golfer who is peaking after a lengthy slump.

Justin Rose -125 vs. Rickie Fowler

Things could be different this time around for Rose being the defending champion and all. There is that hanging over his head. He played here last year to meet PGA Tournament requirements and all he did was beat Brooks Koepka and the field by three-swings with four rounds of 66 or lower. His ball-striking was outrageous last year and he needs to overcome a recent bout of inconsistency, but his stats align with how to beat the course, and he tamed it in fine style last year.

Joel Dahmen +110 vs. Zach Johnson

It’s probably not a good idea to go against 12-time Tour winner and two-time champion of this event Johnson, but Dahmen is seemingly in his element and should provide a challenge. His accuracy off the tee didn’t help at Bethpage and neither did a final round 79. But Dahmen did nab a runner-up at the WFC two starts ago. This layout is shorter and the accuracy will certainly come into play like it did last year with four sub-70 rounds and a T20.

Abraham Ancer -115 vs. Si Woo Kim

I have a strong feeling that this is going to be a good week for Ancer. He is one of the most consistent players off the tee and will gain strokes on the field, since that’s what he’s been doing all year. He’s also a Texan, which should help with his track familiarity. Ancer is also coming off a good week at the PGA Championship where he grabbed a top-20. Similar to Dahmen, Ancer isn’t long off the tee, but that’s not a requirement at Colonial.
