The Charles Schwab Challenge is a great sequel to what was a great PGA Championship last week.
Three of the top five players in the world and five of the top 10 are at Colonial Country Club for one of the oldest stops on the PGA TOUR in Fort Worth. That’s not even including Will Zalatoris, a Dallas native who came close to beating Justin Thomas last weekend in Tulsa.
Colonial, like Southern Hills Country Club, is a par-70, but it plays 400 yards longer than the host PGA Championship course. A certain type of player has usually won at Colonial, but last year Jason Kokrak broke that mold.
Our GolfBet team are at it this week, laying out their favorite Charles Schwab bets and picks below.
2022 Charles Schwab Challenge Pick
Maverick McNealy – Top 20 (+250)
Jason Sobel: Although he didn’t show his typical high floor last week, McNealy has proven to be dangerous goods on short courses, playing well in places like Pebble Beach and Harbor Town so far in his young career. .
McNealy also looks set to figure this one out, going from 42nd in his first start to 32nd in the next to 20th last year.
Justin Rose +6500
Chris Murphy: There are plenty of places I could go here and I always decide what I want to do at the top of the board, but I’m sticking to my Sunday night best bet of Justin Rose heading into this week.
Rose had one of his best weeks of the year last week at the PGA Championship as he closed the week tied to finish T13. Rose gained 5.2 shots at this elite major field with his irons, earning approach shots in every round and even taking it up a notch over the weekend.
Rose’s result is the best he has had since January and it comes at the right time. Now he’s headed down a path where he’s had plenty of career success, including a win in 2018. Rose hasn’t missed a cut in his last four trips to this event and three of them have come are ranked in the top 20, including two in the top 3.
Rose is 40-1 or 50-1 in most books. The best number is in DraftKings at 65-1, which I’ll be all over him in all markets.
Jordan Spieth +1200
Matt Vincenzi: Spieth was my star bet at Byron Nelson a few weeks ago. Although he failed to do so, he did nothing to dissuade me from believing that a victory in Texas for him is imminent.
The history of the course has proven extremely important at Colonial and there is no better on the course (or even near) than Spieth. In his last six trips to Fort Worth, he has finished in the top ten six times, including one win and three runners-up. His overall form in the state of Texas is simply immaculate.
Spieth’s performance at the PGA Championship was not his best performance, but statistically he continued to hit hard. He gained 8.6 shots from tee to green, including 4.7 solid shots on the approach. He still struggles on the greens, as he lost 3.2 shots on the field with the putter.
In his last four starts at Colonial Country Club, Spieth has won 7.1 (2021), 8.6 (2020) and 7.5 (2019). If there was ever a place the 28-year-old could find his putt, it’s here.
Spieth opened the week all around 15-1, but he bet big on Tuesday and is even now the betting favorite at PointsBet. You can still get 12-1 on BetMGM, starting Tuesday night.
Tony Finau +4000
Joshua Perry: Finau hasn’t been consistent as usual this season but there have been signs of improvement overall.
Finau earned strokes across the board last week at the PGA. It was the first time he had accomplished this since winning the Northern Trust last year. He also showed glimpses of elite ball-striking. He won six shots off the tee at Wells Fargo a few weeks ago and in Mexico he won eight shots with his irons en route to a second-place finish.
It has also been a place where Finau has played well. He was runner-up to Kevin Na in 2019 and made the cut in all six starts, with no worse than 34th.
Chris Kirk — Absolutely (+5000) & Top 5 (+1000)
Derek Farnsworth: Even though Kirk has a lot of missed cuts on his resume this season, most of them have been one or two hits. The underlying stats continue to look solid, as he has won at least two shots from tee to green in 10 of his last 11 events. He put up a strong run Sunday at the PGA Championship to find himself tied for fifth and now returns to one of his favorite courses on tour.
Kirk has made nine straight cuts at Colonial Country Club and even won here in 2015. He’s accurate from the start, his irons have been on fire and he’s underrated around the greens. He will need a good week of putting to find himself in contention, but Kirk is one of those golfers who can have those peak weeks on the greens. He’s an average putter overall, but he’s won or lost more than one shot on the court in eight consecutive events.
Kirk started the week around 60-1 in most books. He fell to 50-1 at DraftKings, and it’s even lower elsewhere.
Talor Gooch +4000
Landon Silinsky: Many are likely to still have sour tastes in their mouths after fielding Gooch two weeks ago at the Byron Nelson, as he shot a 73 in the first round en route to a nasty missed cut. He righted the ship last week at the PGA Championship, finishing tied for 20th. His game was clicking on all cylinders as he gained over three shots from the approach and eight shots from tee to green.
Gooch has played at Colonial four times in his career, making the cut three times and posting a career-best T14 result last year. He’s a much better player now than he’s ever been in his career, and we’re getting a good price here on one of the most underrated golfers on the PGA TOUR.
Gooch is 35-1 in most books, but you can still have him at 40-1 at WynnBet.
Scottie Scheffler (Top 5), Collin Morikawa (Top 10) AND Will Zalatoris (Top 20) – +2900 @ FanDuel
Rob Bolton: If we’re worried about the PGA Championship hangover, we don’t worry about it in the context of these guys.
Scheffler goes out and plays the next move, whether it’s now, tomorrow, next week or a month from now. See the ball, hit the ball, win. It is #2 in my Power Ranking on PGATOUR.com.
Morikawa is No. 5. Despite his pair of major wins among five PGA TOUR wins already, it’s still hard to forget his playoff loss when golf returns to Colonial in 2020. He responded with a T14 last year. That he’s back (when he doesn’t have to) proves his affinity for the track, the test and the opportunity for redemption.
Seeing Zalatoris (#3) cheer on Justin Thomas on Sunday in Southern Hills gave me life. What a great spirit (again) in the face of defeat (again). So much positivity for the local resident, oh, and with talent to match. In his last five starts, he has four top-six finishes.
Kevin Na +5000
Bryan Berryman: It’s no secret that Kevin Na loves playing Colonial. Narrow fairways, heavily bunkered approach shots and bentgrass greens fit perfectly into his game rooted in precision and putting.
In eight career starts, Charles Schwab has four top-15 finishes, including a fourth in 2018 and a win in 2019.
Na’s superior accuracy both off the tee and on the greens gives him a clear advantage every time he plays Colonial. That accuracy has been on display lately, hitting 65% of his fairways over the year and earning 14.2 approach shots in his last three starts.
As the 10th ranked putter in all rounds in this area on bentgrass, he literally ticks every box for me this week. We catch a player with an outstanding run history, who arrives in great form at great numbers.
Roll Na for your betting card this week, with PointsBet the only book still offering 50-1 on Tuesday night.
