Following the PGA Championship, another solid field of 120 golfers head to Fort Worth for the Charles Schwab Challenge. More shot-making is on display at the tree-lined 7,209-yard par 70 at Colonial Country Club.
Following wins by dark horse picks Max Homa in the Farmers Insurance Open, Adam Svensson in the RSM Classic, and Matt Fitzpatrick in the RBC Heritage, there are opportunities to cash in on other players behind the leading favorites. That includes a top-10 or top-20 finish like dark horse Jason Day at The Players Championship, Xander Schauffele at The Masters, Patrick Rodgers (3/1 for top 10) in Mexico, Tommy Fleetwood (5/1 for top 5) at the Wells Fargo Championship, and Seamus Power top-20 at the AT&T Byron Nelson.
Charles Schwab Challenge PGA Picks 2023
Beyond the favorites and top-ranked players with odds to win below 30/1, there are plenty of capable longshots and dark horses that could make a run at the leaderboard and come away with a higher finish or victory on Sunday. After all, did you see Kurt Kitayama win the Arnold Palmer Invitational at 220/1 odds or greater and Wyndham Clark win at 75/1 at the Wells Fargo Championship?
Check out the 2023 Charles Schwab Challenge and preview, along with top finishing position odds, tournament matchups and golf props on FanDuel Sportsbook.
1. Brian Harman (+6000)
Harman's game fits on these shorter, positional courses. He's finished top-3 three times in eight appearances at Colonial since 2015. Despite missing a number of cuts since March, Harman's iron play remains pretty solid and he did finish T7 at Harbour Town on another shot-making and shot-shaping course.
2. Davis Riley (+15000)
Davis Riley is on the rise, although three missed cuts in May would leave you wondering along with these big bomb odds. The 26-year-old finished T4 on debut here last year opening 67-67 and fell out of a tie for the lead on hole 14 Sunday. His ball striking and approach stats are top-20 in this field over his last 36 rounds despite some sour results. These odds to win are the longest of any sportsbook, so grab them now and add a top-10 and top-20 finish as they will surely drop.
3. Scott Stallings (+20000)
Another long bomb dark horse, Stallings ranks top-10 in strokes gained Total and Ball Striking over his last 36 rounds on courses with bent greens. His results have not been good enough to contend this year, thus his odds continue to drift. But the 38-year-old had a shot to win at Colonial last year, also finishing T4 after opening 67-64.
