IS SPIETH ‘WORTH’ A PLAY?

May 24, 2023

EVENT: Charles Schwab Challenge (Thurs-Sun)

WHY WE’LL WATCH: A strong field tackling one of the Tour’s most iconic courses should produce some fireworks this holiday weekend.

COURSE INFO: Colonial CC in Fort Worth, Texas, has a classic design and is known as “Hogan’s Alley” after golf legend Ben Hogan. The 7,209-yard course is surprisingly difficult despite its shorter length due to its narrow corridors and small greens.

FAVES: Fresh off a second-place finish at the PGA Championship, Scottie Scheffler (+400) is the comfortable favorite here as the top-ranked golfer in the world. Viktor Hovland has retreated to +1400, joining Tony Finau and Jordan Spieth.

BETS TO CONSIDER: The legend of Michael Block will grow if he can nab a back-to-back Top 20 (+1000). Spieth has eight top 10s in 10 appearances, so a Top 10 (+180) is hard to resist.
