Among the less than +2500 odds choices have the best chance of winning the 2019 Charles Schwab Challenge?
The PGA called this tournament the Fort Worth Invitational last year. Justin Rose shot a -20. He beat last week’s PGA Championship winner Brooks Koepka by 3 strokes. Koepka is taking the week off after winning the PGA. That leaves Rose as the favorite. Rose could be vulnerable here, though.
He shot a +5 at the PGA Championship. Although that was good enough for a Top 30 finish, it wasn’t good enough for him to get within shouting distance of Koepka and Dustin Johnson.
Of the favorites, the best pick might be Jon Rahm. The 24-year-ol Spaniard had a terrible time at the PGA. He missed the cut after a 70 first round and shooting a 75 in Round 2. Before the PGA last week, his form was great. Rahm won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in the previous tournament.
He also finished ninth at the Masters. Rahm should turn his form around here. He shot a respectable -10 at Colonial Country Club last year. Unless Rose runs away with it, Rahm will be in the final duo on Sunday. He’s got a big shot to win.
Who’s the best choice between +2500 and +4000 odds to win this weekend?
Although Tony Finau, Paul Casey, Bryson DeChambeau and Kevin Kisner all have a chance, the golfer to consider between +2500 and +4000 odds is Louis Oosthuizen. Oosthuizen shot a +10 at the PGA Championship.
He started out well. He finished Round 1 with a 70. His Round 2 ended with a 68. But, he imploded on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, Oosthuizen shot a 73. Sunday saw him shoot a 79. If not for Saturday and Sunday, he’d have possibly finished in the Top 10.
Oosthuizen shot a -10 at Colonial Country Club last year. He should be in the mix at least on Thursday and Friday. If he can maintain his consistency over the weekend, who knows? Louis Oosthuizen is definitely worth a look at the odds.
Which golfer from +4500 to +5500 odds has the best chance of taking the 2019 Charles Schwab trophy?
The pick here is easy. Emiliano Grillo shot a -16 at this tournament last year. That was only 4 stroks off Rose. Grillo hasn’t made the Top 10 in 4 straight tournaments. He’s hit well enough to make the cut in all four tournaments, though. That includes making the cut at both the Masters and the PGA Championship.
Emiliano Grillo knows how to hit the ball at Colonial Country Club. He’s the man to back if you’re looking for a +5000 dog.
Is there a golfer not listed who could win the 2019 Charles Schwab Challenge?Kevin Na shot a -14 at Colonial last year. That was only 6 strokes off winner Justin Rose. Na missed the cut at the PGA Championship.
Even though Na’s form says he has no shot, professional golfers often key in on a couple of tournaments a year. If this is one of Na’s key tournaments of 2019, he could be in the mix on Sunday. The odds are excellent, +6600. Consider Kevin Na if you’re looking to back a major underdog.
