The 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge gets underway on Thursday in Forth Worth, Texas. It will be the 75th edition of the pro tour stop contested at Colonial Country Club.
The 2020 edition marked the tour’s return from the coronavirus interruption. Daniel Berger returns to defend his 2020 title.
But most eyes will be on two superstars: three-time major winner Jordan Spieth as he seeks to follow up his win in San Antonio with a second 2021 Texas trophy and newly-minted PGA Champion Phil Mickelson, the now six-time major winner.
Spieth, the hometown favorite is offered at 10/1 to take home his second trophy of the season while the 50-year old Mickelson is more of a longshot at 50/1.
World No. 2 Justin Thomas is 12/1 with 2020 runner-up Collin Morikawa rounding out the top-3 favorites at 14/1.
Defending champion Berger is offered at 20/1 along with Abraham Ancer, who complete the top-5 in Fort Worth.

Charles Schwab Challenge Bets
Justin Thomas (+1200) – The 28-year old missed the cut at the PGA and so should have plenty of motivation to get back on track. He’s played mediocre to poor since his big win the Players… In fact he only has two top-10s in all of 2021 – a T3 at Kapalua and W at Sawgrass. Something’s gotta give soon… He finished T10 here last year.
Justin Rose (+600) – The 40-year-old Brit enters off a T8 at the PGA and before that a solo 7th at the Masters… He won here in 2018 and finished T3 in 2020 and would seem to be a horse for Colonial.
Zach Johnson (+650) – The 45-year old from Iowa is a two time winner of this tournament (2010 and 2012), and owns the all-time scoring record… He enters off six poor results, but his track record shows he’s good for a top 10 right about now, and so at a course that he eats up, this could be it.
