2023 Charles Schwab Challenge odds, course history and picks to win

The "Wall of Champions"

After a week in Western New York for the PGA Championship, the PGA Tour heads back down to the Lone Star State for the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas.

Sam Burns, who missed the cut by a wide margin at Oak Hill, is the defending champion after taking down Scottie Scheffler in a playoff in 2022. Scheffler, however, is the heavy betting favorite at +400. The next closest is Jordan Spieth at +1200.

Spieth didn’t complete the career grand slam last week, but he did play well enough to tie for 29th despite some concern about his wrist. The Texan has finished in the top 10 of this event in seven of the last eight years.

Im surprisingly missed the cut at the PGA, but will enter the week in good spirits thanks to his great track record at Colonial. He finished 15th in ’21 and 10th in ’20.

Before an early exit from New York, Im tied for eighth at the Wells Fargo, tied for seventh at the RBC Heritage and tied for 16th at the Masters.
