2024 Charles Schwab Challenge Course: Colonial Golf Course

Colonial Country Club plays at 7300 yards and is a Par 70. It’s going to look different this year so previous photos and videos of the course don’t help.

Penalizing barrancas (ravines and ditches) have been added to help with drainage so wayward shots will be penalized, and the greens look to be pretty firm this week so don’t expect approach shots to stop and be controlled like we saw last week.

The fairways are a bit tight, and trees and rough outside the fairways can give players trouble, and weather could be an issue this week as thunderstorms are coming on Thursday, and the win looks to be in the teens most of the tournament.

2024 Charles Schwab Challenge: Players That Can Trip You Up

Tony Finau

He’s finished Top 20 in 2 out of the last 3 weeks, but he didn’t crack the Top 10, and he’s priced as a top 5 favorite.

He’s outside the Top 20 in total strokes gained in the last 3 months, and his putting is -0.25 in the last 3 months. He missed the cut here last year, and at this price I just won’t be betting on FInau this week.

MinWoo Lee

He’s finished 22nd, 24th, and 26th in his last 3 tournaments, but he’s finished 40th and MC the last 2 years here and he’s priced as the 6th highest betting favorite.

He’s 20th in total strokes gained in this field, and I think finishing around 20th is where he will finish, but that’s way below the price we have to play on him. He’s too expensive for me, I won’t bet on him.

Jordan Spieth

He’s priced as a Top 3 golfer, and I just don’t get it. He has one finish better than 29th this season, and that was a 10th-place finish a couple of months ago.

He’s outside the Top 40 in total strokes gained in this field, I just don’t understand why he’s priced so high…I guess it’s just because of name value, but regardless there’s no world where I bet on Jordan Spieth this week.

2024 Charles Schwab Challenge: DraftKings Darlings

Adam Svensson $6400

He’s not finishing near the top of the leaderboard, but he’s made the cut in 6 straight tournaments, and his only appearance in this tournament was in 2022 where he finished 40th. It’s not a great field so I would expect him to make the cut and get us weekend points.

Lee Hodges $7200

Last week we played on Byeong Hun An who has been great in his last couple of tournaments, and he rewarded us with another solid finish so we’ll do the same with Hodges here.

He’s finished 12th and 24th the last 2 weeks, and he’s finished 29th and 35th the last 2 years here so he’ll be in my lineup.

Austin Eckroat $7500

He’s been playing great this year as he’s made the cut in 11 out of 13 tournaments this year, and he was 16th at this tournament last year. He was really good last week at the PGA Championship finishing 18th so I expect a solid performance from him this week.

Rest Of Lineup: Mark Hubbard $7600, Taylor Moore $7900, Scottie Scheffler $13,300
