Scottie Scheffler (+1100)
Scheffler is human after all, as he missed the cut at the 2022 PGA Championship. That’s just the second time he missed a cut this season, though, and the first this year. The no. 1 ranked player in the world is still a force to reckon with, given his overall form this campaign. So far in the season, Scheffler has four wins and seven top 10s with 11 top 25s in 16 PGA TOUR starts. The 25-year-old Scheffler is third this season with a 71.26 percent success rate in terms of greens in regulation. He is also seventh with a scoring average of 69.741.
Collin Morikawa (+1400)
Another 25-year-old star is Morikawa, who is 6 of 6 in his last six starts, which includes a fifth place at the 2022 Masters Tournament. However, he was just T55 at the 2022 PGA Championship last week, so he is looking for a strong rebound at Colonial Country Club, where he’s churned out solid performances. He made his debut there in 2020 and finished runner-up in that year’s Charles Schwab Challenge. Then he settled for 14th in the 2022 edition of that same tournament.
Jordan Spieth (+1300)
This tournament is in Texas so you should have expected to find Spieth’s name where there are discussions about the favorites to win the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge. Spieth’s been pretty strong of late. While he finished outside of the top 30 at the 2022 PGA Championship, he had a win at the 2022 RBC Heritage in April followed by a runner-up finish at the 2022 AT&T Byron Nelson. And then, of course, Spieth has been historically solid when he’s teeing at Colonial Country Club. In nine career starts there, he’s cracked the top 10 seven times and won once when he topped the 2016 DEAN & DELUCA Invitational.
Chris Kirk (+4500)
Here’s what we said about Kirk in our 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge sleepers piece:
Kirk has won at Colonial Country Club before when he topped the field at the 2015 Crowne Plaza Invitational and is coming off a T5 at the 2022 PGA Championship, but what makes him a sleeper is his odds. At his current price, Kirk seems to be brimming with high-value quality. The Atlanta native also has a trio of top 10s in 17 starts this season. Apart from his T5 at the Southen Hills Country Club last week, Kirk’s other Top 10s this season were his T7 at the 2022 Honda Classic and a T5 at the 2022 Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard.
Patton Kizzire (+11000)
Here’s what we said about Kizzire in our 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge sleepers piece:
Kizzire made the cut at the 2022 PGA Championship but finished with just a T75. Nevertheless, he has now made the cut in three of his last four starts and is 13 of 19 this season, thus far. A reason why he should be a golfer to keep a close eye on heading to this week’s event is that he was third at the Colonial Country Club at the 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge. Prior to that, he missed the cut three times in five appearances there and finished no better than 64th in either of the two times he made the cut.
Bill Haas (odds)
Haas is only 15 of 22 this season but has made the cut in nine of his last 10 starts. He is also 9 of 11 in his career at Colonial Country Club.
Nick Watney (odds)
Watney has missed the cut in all of his last four starts. The 41-year-old pro who finished with a T2 at the 2021 Sanderson Farms Championship, is 4 of 9 at Colonial Country Club. He finished eighth at the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge.
Jordan Spieth wins the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge.
