After what feels like an eternity, the PGA returns with their first event since the first round of THE PLAYERS Championship. The Charles Schwab Challenge will take place from June 11-14th at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. This event won’t have any fans in attendance but it’s the first, pivotal step taken to bring the sport back. Topping the DraftKings Sportsbook to take down this even are some of your usual suspects with Rory McIlroy (+750) heading the field followed by Jon Rahm (+900) and Justin Thomas (+1400). But what about some of the medium to long shots we can take a shot with? We’ll dive into three options to consider before placing your bets.

 

Our Picks To Win With BIG ROI

 

Justin Rose (+4500)

How quickly we forget the Rose won at the Colonial Country Club only two years ago. Heading into the final round, Rose had a four-stroke lead and easily earned at the time, his ninth PGA Tour title. Rose would go on win his tenth in 2019 at the Farmers Insurance Open. After finishing the front-nine with a 30, Rose was a bit shaky on the back-nine, missing birdie putts on three different hole and bogeyed on 18. Even with that and fending off a red hot Brooks Kopeka (63), Rose was the winner in the end.

The high odds on Rose is certainly a reflection of his recent struggles as of late. Rose missed the cut in three of his last four events at the Farmers Insurance Open, Honda Classic and Arnold Palmer Invitational. At The Genesis Invitational, Rose placed 56th with rounds of 69-69-75-75 at the Riviera Country Club. For someone at his talent, Rose couldn’t be in a more perfect scenario to potentially regain his form at a course he’s done so well at. Don’t be afraid to take advantage of these odds.

Kevin Na (+5500)

Na is no stranger to the Colonial, having played 46 rounds here. He thinks of this venue as one of his favorites to play at, along with the Riviera and Hilton Head. Na won this event last year with a 267, beating out Tony Finau at 271. Na also has some of the most experience at this venue, playing the fourth most rounds but having the best strokes gained average amongst the group at 1.73. The others are Ryan Palmer (+0.64), Zach Johnson (+1.53) and Rory Sabbatini (+1.0).

Na hasn’t exactly been at the top of his game this current season, finishing with only two top 10 finishes and missing the cut in nine of the 12. His only win came at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, when he defeated Patrick Cantlay on the second hole of sudden death. Nonetheless, his frequent and consistent play at this course could make him someone to consider as he looks to make it back-to-back wins.

 

Jason Day (+6600)

This will be the first time since 2011 that Day will be returning to this event. The extended layoff has also given him time to rest up, as Day said his chronically-injured back feels good. In this event, Day will be looking for his first victory in over two years. In 2018, Day won both the Farmers Insurance Open and the Wells Fargo Championship, which was his last win back in May of 2018.

Day is very familiar with the Colonial and has +1.3 strokes gained average at this venue, according to DataGolf.org. Day is a former member of the Colonial Country Club, so it’s not out of the realm to call this sort of a home field for him. Day is your perfect example of a high-risk/high-reward bet and if he is indeed as healthy as he says, the value on him is extraordinary.
